Holbeck Local Priorities
Below are your local Priorities as agreed by your local NPT at a recent PACT meeting - these priorities are promises made by your local NPT. Please read the news pages for updates and information about how these priorities are being addressed by your local team.
Nuisance motorbikes on Gipsy Lane, into Middleton woods
There have been several reports of nuisance motorcycles in the area since the New Year. Police off-road officers are aware of the issues and patrol the area regularly.
With the evenings getting lighter, Holbeck NPT will be increasing their patrols and will tackle the problem pro-actively by way issuing Section 59 warnings. Bikes will be seized when necessary.
Anti-social behaviour and nuisance motorcycles in Cross Flatts park
Since the New Year, there have been regular PCSO patrols in the area and also mounted patrols which have resulted in several people, who are known to the police, being stopped and spoken to.
There have been several burglaries in the area and officers have maintained regular pro-active patrols, again stopping anyone acting suspiciously.
Police have also liased with the council regarding large amounts of rubbish having been dumped near to the football courts.
A local resident was spoken to about her two large dogs running free in the area and advised to keep them contained at home and on leads when in a public places.
Anti-social behaviour on Brett Gardens and Bismarck Street every evening from 4pm until midnight
High visibility patrols have been increased, following the success of Operation Donhouse - a six week local operation to address the anti-social behaviour and reported drug issues in the Beeston Hill area.
During Operation Donhouse officers:-
Stopped and searched 165 people
Executed 11 drugs warrants
Arrested 41 people for a number of offences
PCSO’s have continued to pay passing attention to the area on their daily patrols.
There has been only one call to the Police since the New Year, reporting youths throwing snowballs at a house, resulting in one of the youths being named and advised.
The number of calls to the Police reporting anti-social behaviour in this area has dramatically reduced and we would be interested to hear what the residents of Beeston Hill would like to be their new Local Priority for Holbeck NPT to tackle.
There is currently no Local Priority for the Cottingley area and Holbeck NPT would like to invite local residents to suggest a new Local Priority for officers to tackle. Come along to the next PACT meeting and have your say.
Prostitution on St Matthew's Street, Pleasant Street, Pleasant Place, Stocks Hill and Bridge Road, all day every day
The area has been patrolled throughout the day and evening over the past three months. Operation Diary has been set up; each NPT has dedicated PCSOs to take the lead on the problem, increasing their regular patrols and gathering intelligence which will assist in tackling the problem more effectively. Girls have been spoken to and advised and their details taken. They have then been directed to leave the area immediately. Several Home Office cautions have been issued and there has also been an arrest.
Some girls have been engaging with support workers, receiving help and advice in kicking drugs and prostitution.
Several motorists have been stopped and spoken to regarding kerbcrawling and their details (and vehicle details) have been checked and added to the Police National Computer.
Local residents are encouraged to continue to inform the police of any anti-social behaviour.
There is currently no Local Priority for the Hunslet area and Holbeck NPT would like to invite local residents to suggest a new Local Priority for officers to tackle. Come along to the next PACT meeting and have your say.
