Neighbourhood Priorities

Ward Area: Bradford City

Lead Area Sergeant: PS 2157 Towers 
Lead Area Problem Solving Officer: PC 2794 Morgan 

To target anti-social behaviour and suspected drug dealing which is occurring on/ around Ivegate, Bradford. Numerous reports have been received to state that youths are congregating in the Ivegate alleyway next to “Drum Winder” pub. 

This location has seen an increase in nuisance caused by street drinkers and youths to use. We are working with the council to make some small changes to the street furniture that we think will reduce the issue and make the area more conducive to use by shoppers. We are also continuing hot spot patrols to target offenders who commit crime.  Our work to gate off the alley was at the side of Drum Winder would have significantly reduced drug dealing and we are working with the council to re visit this approach. There will be a day of action in the coming months and mounted section will be in attendance when able.

You Said: To reduce violent crime within the night-time economy of Bradford City Centre.

We Did: Operation Spotlight was created for targeted patrols and remains in place following feedback from members of the community to target violent crime, drugs, and alcohol misuse during the night-time economy, particularly on weekends. We will do this by working in partnership with our colleagues from Bradford at Night, Humankind, Pub Watch and Street Angels with funding support kindly made available from The Police and Crime Commissioner’s office. Using legislation where appropriate to reduce opportunities for offending.

•    Several Bradford Officers completed the ‘Bystander’ Training input to Licensed Venues/Staff via Pubwatch providing them with the tools and confidence to intervene and keep people safe.
•    Pub watch meeting / Groups remain in place which quickly identify problematic/banned individuals to prevent them from entering Licensed Venues within the town centre. 
•    There is also a swift banning Policy via Pubwatch for Problematic Individuals, usually identified within 24/48 hours and letters sent explaining that they are banned and the reason.
•    Push for Exclusion Orders which are legally binding and issued by the courts to prevent convicted individuals from entering certain Licensed Premises.
•    We have additional patrols during the month of March following #VAWG week.
