  • To target Anti-Social Vehicle use, speeding in and around Victoria Road, Ingle Avenue and Magpie Lane Morley. 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  will be given.

 

  • Street Drug dealing at Victoria Road and surrounding streets at Morley.  We will deal with what we find overtly, however, we will deploy other tactics which we choose to protect so as to help them remain effective.  Where we have the evidence, arrest would always be the preferred way of dealing with the suspects and this is often likely to lead to protracted enquiries, often lasting months due the complexity of the cases.  We will act on good quality, timely and reliable information that the community pass to us to the best of our ability and in accordance with Law. So please do keep us informed by either making direct contact with Morley NPT or if you prefer, anonymously to Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111.
