THE final part of a winter crime crackdown across West Yorkshire has led to 472 arrests.
The seven-day blitz last week was the third and final phase of the county police force's Winter Crime Crackdown.
The aim was to tackle priority crimes - robberies, burglaries and vehicle crime - and catch travelling criminals across West Yorkshire.
Arrests during the three campaign weeks came to almost 1,500.
During last week, recorded burglaries dropped 11%, with the daily force average falling from 79 to 70.
As a result of increased activity to tackle vehicle crime, there was a 71% rise in the number of alleged offenders in court.
During the course of the week, the daily force average for vehicle crime detections rose from 14 to 24.
The campaign kicked off last December and resulted in the recovery of more than 50 stolen vehicles.
Planned arrests and high-profile policing have been used to find prolific offenders.
The blitz was part of West Yorkshire police's Target campaign.
