DEWSBURY is the focus of a police blitz this week.
The five-day clampdown is being held as part of a national campaign to highlight how Neighbourhood Policing Teams work.
The teams will be targeting yobs and vandals, seizing booze from under-age youngsters, telling parents about their children if they are caught behaving badly and searching the homes of suspected drug dealers.
Insp Ian Gayles, of Kirklees North Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "We are working with other agencies to tackle quality of life issues for people in the Dewsbury area.
"We have been gathering information about who is causing the problems, whether it be drug dealing, anti-social behaviour or criminal damage. It is those individuals we will target.
"Work will also be going on with a CCTV van and our roads policing team will be out in conjunction with the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.
"They'll be stopping people without the correct documents.
"The teams will also be supporting the Kirklees District Drugs Team .
"We are also working with Kirklees Young People's Services to encourage young people into diversionary activities.
"Warrants officers from the Courts Service will be targeting people who have failed to pay fines.
"On Friday there will be a big community clean-up in the Dewsbury Moor area, involving the Kirklees Rangers, to remove any material that can be used to cause criminal damage."
This is the latest in a series of similar campaigns in Huddersfield and Dewsbury.
Det Insp Andy Parr, head of the Kirklees District Drugs Team said: "This team and the Drug Interventions Programme have joined forces to lead the fight into drug misuse across Kirklees.
"The week will see the teams working with other agencies to target Class A drug misuse by using treatment for the problem.
"The Government's National Drugs Day on Wednesday will involve agencies across the district targeting treatment of offenders, education of children, enforcement against dealers and the closure of crackhouses.
"The campaign begins with the execution of drug warrants at addresses of people we suspect of dealing in drugs and traffic officers targeting drug users who drive."
Det Insp Parr went on: "National Drugs Day will highlight what agencies are doing across the country. In Kirklees we felt we should detail the true picture of the drive and determination to meet this problem head on.
"If you are a drug user, get in touch because there is help available. If you are committing crime to feed a habit we will catch you. So take up the offer of help before it gets that far.
"If you are a dealer, we will track you down. Your assets will be seized and you will not benefit from your criminality.
"Report drug dealing to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
Jackie Bray, Drugs Intervention Programme manager for Kirklees said: "Dealing purely with the consequences of drugs is not an effective way to achieve long-term improvements for local people.
"We have to acknowledge the cause of those problems and look at realistic solutions."
