Last week West Yorkshire Neighbourhood Police Team held a Multi Agency Local Issue Day in the Holt Park area.
A stall in the Holt Park Shopping Centre was set up to provide advise. As well as this they were giving away free security goodies such as UV property marker pens and purse chains.
The Police showed off the vehicles they use including their off road bikes that help to prevent crime and anti-social behaviour.
Furthermore officers targeted the top 10 most burgled streets and offered home security services.
Also West North West Homes and Sanctuary Housing were present completing
anti-social behaviour and tenancy visits.
With regards to crime, last week saw positive results for the Holt Park area.
There were no reported burglaries and only one report of vehicle crime, in which a scooter was stolen from Holtdale Way.
No new graffiti has appeared in the area, but there have been several reports of anti-social behaviour in and around the ASDA and Holt Park Shopping Centre towards staff and security.
