THE Biker Bobbies have gone to war with the two-wheel yobs.
And Kirklees police officers Nigel Law and Andrew Money believe they are winning the battle.
The two Pcs have been on the streets – and fields – of the region since April, hard at work tackling the anti-social use of off-road bikes.
They respond to complaints about mainly young people driving motorbikes in fields, along footpaths and through woods – often without helmets.
So far, the Kirklees Off-Road Bike Unit have seized eight machines and issued 49 warnings in response to reports of nuisance motorcycles across the region.
Three bikes have been seized from people in the Dewsbury area with a further three from the Spen Valley. Single bikes have also been seized in Chickenley and Fartown.
The motorcycles were seized under the Road Traffic Act and their owners reported for summons by the courts.
A further 49 warnings have also been given to people found using their vehicles in an anti-social manner.
These people will risk having their bikes taken from them if they are caught again.
Pc Law said: “We are very mobile unit, able to respond to a variety of calls.
“Our main remit is to tackle the anti-social use of off-road motorcycles in Kirklees – which is what we have been doing in seizing these bikes and giving out warnings to owners.
“But we are still able to help other departments with their work as and when required.”
The two officers will continue to work across the region until at least the autumn.
Anyone who is concerned about anti-social biking issues in their area, is asked to report the matter to their local Neighbourhood Policing team via 0845 6060606.
