36 arrests in Batley Carr crime crackdown

Issue 439

SOME 36 people were arrested around Batley Carr last week for offences including burglaries, criminal damage and possession of drugs.
Police worked with groups such as the probation and fire services, Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing and Kirklees Council to nab the offenders.
It was part of the weeklong “Operation Focus” crackdown on antisocial behaviour.
Traffic cops also handed out fines to 66 drivers caught without wearing seatbelts and to 13 others for using mobile phones at the wheel.
Officers also targeted cars on sale along Halifax Road in Staincliffe after residents complained about private traders using the highway as a sales area.
Warnings were dished out to groups of underage drinkers, who had a bottle of wine, 46 cans of lager and three bottles of vodka confiscated from them.
Convicted criminals on community payback schemes led by the probation service cleared litter and cut back shrubbery along Taylor Street.
Firefighters checked homes for fire safety and council workmen removed rubbish.
Insp Neil Money, of Batley’s neighbourhood policing team, said: “We worked with our partners to address issues that residents have contacted us about.
“By working in this way we can have the maximum impact on the problems like antisocial behaviour, road traffic and quality of life issues.”
