A MAJOR week-long police campaign in part of Huddersfield will tackle everything from gang culture to graffiti.
Police say they will target specific people in Bradley, Brackenhall, Deighton and Riddings.
These will include prolific criminals, yobs responsible for intimidation and harassment and at least two gangs based in the areas.
They will also be working alongside others - especially Kirklees Council departments - to shift rubbish dumped illegally and get rid of graffiti.
The campaign is the latest in a series called Kirklees Focus, where police arrive in selected areas for a couple of days - or in this case five - to tackle some of its everyday issues.
Kirklees police commander Chief Supt Barry South said at a briefing that it was vital the police win the confidence of people living in those areas.
"Engagement is key," he said.
"It's half-term this week and a great opportunity to link in with a lot of the kids to find out what they are about and why they get involved in anti-social behaviour.
"It is also about education in terms of letting people who live there know what we are trying to achieve and show what can happen when different organisations pull together and focus on a particular area. Talk to people. Have a cup of tea with them."
He said it would not end on Friday. Information gathered and links made would continue long afterwards to have an impact on policing those areas.
"This week's focus will be a stepping stone to continuity," he said.
He also said enforcement was a key element.
"That's what we are here for - targeting specific people, but we do that all the time."
Acting Chief Insp David Glover added: "We reckon that 98% of people will welcome us with open arms. It's the 2% who make it hard for everyone else. At the end of the week we want to leave the area a better place than we found it."
The main aims of the Focus are to:
* Reduce anti-social behaviour.
* Cut reports of criminal damage by catching the offenders.
* Target and arrest wanted suspects living in the area.
* Clean-up the environment.
* Cut crime and the fear of crime.
* Reduce the number of calls to the police from the targeted area.
Details of youths who have come to the attention of Kirklees Anti-Social Behaviour Unit will be given to police involved in the campaign.
People who are using drugs will be given the chance to seek help from the Drug Interventions Programme and there will also by youth work in the area coupled with sports events.
Kirklees Environmental Rangers will be looking for the worst grot spots and organise tidy-ups.
Some clean-up work will be carried out by people who have been convicted by courts and ordered to do unpaid work.
People will have the chance to have free home fire safety checks and smoke detectors can be fitted for free.
