On Holtdale View suspects were able to reach through the letterbox remove keys and take a Ford Focus.

There has been a recent spate of attempted and actual burglaries around the Holt Park Area. We are calling out to the community asking for extra vigilance and to call in any thing suspicious or out of the ordinary. We have increased patrols and will continue to closely monitor the area. Has any one seen any thing? CCTV is a fantastic deterrent and an excellent security addition; it’s great to see some families having installed it.

Anything Else of Note
Euro Profile Locks are the biggest risk to your home security, the majority of burglaries in the area are through these locks, we can not stress enough the importance of having your locks checked and the barrels replacing if necessary.

Police in North West Leeds have issued an appeal for householders to get their uPVC door locks checked and replaced with bump and snap secure Euro Cylinder locks.

This follows an increase in break-ins where vulnerable and cheap Euro Profile locks have been forced. Burglars use a simple tool to smash the lock in a technique well known among criminals.

Around one-in-four burglaries in West Yorkshire involves the Euro Profile locks, which are widely used in uPVC doors, particularly older ones.

CASAC has been working in the West Yorkshire area for over 10 years addressing some of the root causes of crime, during that time CASAC has developed a unique relationship with West Yorkshire Police, which means that all CASAC staff have official Police Identification Badges, evidence of a true partnership and providing confidence for users of their services.

There has been extensive damage caused to the old changing rooms, the front roller shutters have been forced open which will require expensive repairs, this kind of needless damage takes funds which are needed helping the community, we are treating this seriously and if you have any information on who may be responsible please call it in on 0845 6060606 (non emergency number).

Friday Night Project
Certain individuals behaviour at this event detracted from the great work been carried out by both the staff and the Holtpark residents, the names of the individuals have been circulated with a view to refusing access to any one who’s behaviour is unacceptable. The Friday Night Project is an excellent opportunity for the younger members of the community to come together and have fun, lets protect this event, if you know of any one who attended this event who’s behaviour was unacceptable please contact Otley Police Station on 01274 471458 and leave a message for Claire or Chris ( PCSO for the area).

The Holt Park residents combined with the Friday Night Project to arrange an event were both adults and the younger members of the community could come together and have fun, this was a resounding success and a thank you to the Holtpark residents for arrange such an event, I attended and had a great time.

PCSO Chris King
