Ward Area – Middleton

To tackle anti-social behaviour in the New Forest Village.  We will conduct high visibility patrols and take and positive action where offences are identified.  We will utilise ASB legislation where necessary and will work in partnership with Leeds Anti Social Behaviour Team to deal with persistent perpetrators. 

To disrupt and engage with nuisance youths in and around the Acre Road area, including Middleton Skate Park, particularly targeting those engaged in Anti-Social Behaviour. We will continue to deal with this issue by conducting high visibility patrols in the area. We will also use ASB Legislation if required to prevent the youths from returning to the location if warnings are not heeded.

 

Ward Area – Morley North

Speeding continues to be a reported issue in and around the Ward area.  We will give particular focus at Whitehall Road, Bradford Road near the Golf Course, Moorside Road and Hodgson Lane at Drighlington. Also, Church Avenue, Town Street, and Branch End towards Asquith Avenue at Gildersome Lane at Gildersome.  We will be increasing patrols in the areas, deploying our pro Laser speed gun and issuing penalty notices or official warnings under s.59 of  The Police Reform Act.  This has already been done recently and fixed penalty tickets have been issued.  This is a safety concern and so we will continue to deploy and enforce the Law in the area, operational demand allowing.

We have been receiving reports of off road quad bikes a few times a week driving through the Drighlington area.  We are seeking information on who these people are and we will take positive action against anyone using such vehicles illegally.   So please do keep us informed by either making direct contact with Morley NPT, call 101 or if you prefer, report it anonymously to Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.  You can make an on line report by clicking this direct link https://www.westyorkshire.police.uk/report-it  or the live 101 chat facility by clicking this direct link here https://www.westyorkshire.police.uk/101LiveChat

Ward Area – Morley South

To disrupt and engage with nuisance youths, particularly targeting those engaged in Anti-Social Behaviour. We are aware of groups attending at Morley Leisure Centre, so this will be one area we focus our high visibility patrols. We will use Anti-Social Behaviour Legislation, such as dispersal orders if proportionate and necessary, to prevent the youths from returning if warnings are not heeded.

To concentrate our efforts on retail crime in Morley town centre area, acting on community intelligence to identify those committing crime. We will ensure high visibility patrols are conducted and utilise all different tactics available to disrupt and prosecute those involved in this criminal activity.

We will continue to act upon community intelligence in relation to the use and supply of drugs.

You can help us by following our crime prevention guidance and reporting any information or intelligence concerns you have directly to us or by using Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or www.crimestoppers-uk.org. 

Ward Area – East Ardsley and Robin Hood

To disrupt and engage with nuisance youths, anti-social behaviour in and around the Robin Hood area, with particular attention to the residential estates around the junction of Leeds Road and Leadwell Lane in particular Oast House Croft and Blacksmith Mews where groups of youths still congregate allegedly to smoke cannabis and take part in ASB.  We will also use ASB and current Covid Legislation to prevent the youths from returning to the location if necessary.  If warnings are not heeded, suspects will be identified and homes visited so that parents can be advised accordingly and, if appropriate, be served with Covid warnings and FPNs.

To target and take appropriate action against anti-social use of vehicles in and around the Tingley area paying particular attention to specific roads highlighted by community intelligence.  We will conduct regular traffic operations including the use of speed measuring equipment to provide road safety advice and prosecute offenders using Road Traffic legislation and, if appropriate, consider the use of Section 59 Police Reform Act warnings and seizures for the more deliberate and serious offences.

 

Ward Area – Rothwell

To monitor and take appropriate action against anti-social use of vehicles over spilling from ‘Rothwell Off Road Centre’, Wakefield Road, Oulton.  We will work with partnership agencies and Leeds City Council to engage with the owners and organisers of the business with a view to providing a more structured management of the facility.  By creating an on-site presence, it is intended that any perimeter breaches by off road vehicles will be remedied at the time and the effect on local residents and adjacent roads reduced.

Provide a visible police presence in and around the town centre of Rothwell following numerous reports of shoplifting offences in the area.  This will provide a deterrent measure along with an opportunity to engage with business owners with a view to obtaining community intelligence and provide crime prevention advice.
