EXTRA police will be on patrol in Lowerhouses tonight - the end of a curfew.
The 9pm curfew order across Lowerhouses and Ashenhurst - set up to curb yobbish behaviour - ends tonight.
And to coincide with the end of the three-month operation, police patrols will be stepped up, to reinforce the message that trouble-making will not be tolerated.
Officers were called on to the estate in June by law- abiding householders living in fear of gangs of youths roaming the streets.
The police's powers of curfew and dispersal meant they could move on nuis- ance teenagers after 9pm if they looked intent on vandalism, abuse or intimidation.
If they refused, the suspects could be arrested.
Insp Dave Barnett said the past three months had been very successful.
He added that police would continue to carry on working with many other groups to make the area safer.
"Many agencies have come on board, such as Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing, neighbourhood wardens, schools and tenants' and residents' associations."
But he added:
"Just because the curfew expires doesn't mean parents can be let kids out."
