Neighbourhood Priorities

(Reviewed 1/8/22)

Little London & Woodhouse Ward

 

High Visibility Patrols to prevent and detect Violent Crime and Knife Crime within the night-time economy, particularly on weekends.

We will do this by working in partnership with statutory and voluntary partners, using legislation where appropriate to reduce opportunities for offending.

To target Theft from Motor Vehicles, especially around public car parks.  

We will do this by increasing high visibility patrols in these areas, working with the community to identify offenders, taking action on intelligence received.

To reduce calls for service in relation to offences of theft from shops.

We will do this by working with partners within businesses to provide support and guidance to the retail community, reducing opportunities for offending and taking positive action against offenders.

To target inconsiderate parking and anti-social vehicle use to improve Road Safety, particularly around car parks within the City Centre.

We will do this by increasing patrols in these areas, issuing penalty notices to vehicles causing obstructions and using Section 59 Police Reform Act 2002 to issue warnings to those using vehicles in an anti-social manner.

 

Hunslet & Riverside Ward

 

High Visibility Patrols to deter and detect Violent Crime within the night-time economy, particularly on weekends.

We will do this by working in partnership with statutory and voluntary partners, using legislation where appropriate to reduce opportunities for offending.

To disrupt and reduce Burglary offences.

We will do this by working with the community to ensure appropriate crime reduction advice is offered and working proactively to identify any offenders.

To target Theft from Motor Vehicles, especially those parked off street and in public car parks. 

We will do this by increasing high visibility patrols in these areas and working with the community to identify offenders, taking action on intelligence received.

Engage with and deter those causing a nuisance, targeting the Misuse of Drugs and Anti-Social Behaviour.

We will do this by increasing visibility in the ward area, working with partner agencies to use Anti-Social Behaviour legislation where appropriate to prevent offenders returning to the same streets to commit offences.

To engage with and disrupt those begging, rough sleeping, street drinking and acting in an anti-social manner in and around Boar Lane, Briggate & Vicar Lane. 

We will do this by working in partnership with Safer Leeds’ Street Support Team to provide support and guidance to those living street-based lives, utilising appropriate legislation where necessary.
