Operation Viper – Beating Crime

West Yorkshire Police has an ambition to be a world class police force, where our communities are safer and feel safer.

Viper is beating crime in West Yorkshire and putting criminals out of action.  We are targeting the most prolific offenders, making arrests in high crime areas across the county. 

The focus is on delivering total crime reduction, particularly driving down house burglary, theft from vehicles, shoplifting and drugs offences.

There will be no hiding place for criminals and they won’t be safe in their own homes. We are stepping up our action and taking the fight to the criminals.

You can help us beat crime as part of Operation Viper by joining the team as a Special Constable or Police volunteer.

Help us to hand out justice by reporting any criminal activity to Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
