ONE in 10 homes in the Holme Valley was found to be at risk of burglary when police carried out checks.
Officers from the Valleys Neighbourhood Policing Team inspected properties as part of an initiative called Operation Focus last month.
Of the 500 properties checked, 55 were found to have unlocked doors or open windows.
Police gave crime prevention advice to the householders.
The operation was carried out in conjunction with West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, a range of Kirklees Council departments, Kirklees Neighbourhood Housing, drugs workers and the Vehicle and Operator Service Agency.
The fire service made 57 home fire safety checks and handed out arson awareness information.
There was work to combat thefts from cars, graffiti, fly-tipping, noise nuisance and complaints about dogs.
Inspector Mark Trueman, of the Valleys NPT, said: “This once again shows that working in partnership with other agencies we can make a difference to a locality, enhancing the quality of life for both residents and visitors to an area.”
