NEIGHBOURHOOD police from Huddersfield North met with the community in Bradley last week.

Pc Elaine Birkby, and PCSOs Sarah Barberini and Debbie Lynch met residents at St Thomas’s Church, Bradley on Thursday.

PCSO Lynch told the meeting the number of burglaries in Bradley is down compared with last month.

One attempted burglary in Stutely Grove, Bradley, resulted in three arrests and they are now awaiting court appearances.

A pedal cycle and an attempted burglary at Bradley Road are other crimes reported in the last month.

PCSO Lynch said: “We have had a good vibe from the community.

“We regularly visit shops and we are getting positive feedback from people.

“It’s a reflection of the good relationships we have established and the hard work of residents to keep us informed of issues in the community.”

Residents are urged to ring police on 101 if they see anything suspicious, particularly quad bikes as the summer months approach.

PCSO Barberini is planning a visit for the community to the police operational support unit at Carr Gate, Wakefield, for a behind the scenes look at the mounted police section, firearms, traffic unit, underwater search teams and the police helicopter.

Clr Cath Harris proposed a mini bus for the visit, which will allow up to 20 people to take up the opportunity which is planned for July.
