BIG Brother is watching you if you live in Rawthorpe, Dalton or Hillhouse.
Security cameras have been introduced to parts of those districts to make residents feel safer.
Five security cameras, which can be moved to focus on potential hotspots, have been installed.
They will be managed by the local neighbourhood policing teams.
The scheme is part of a plan to encourage people to report crime and anti-social behaviour to the police and other agencies.
The action is being led and paid for by Kirklees Neighbourhood Management, which works with agencies in priority areas to tackle local issues.
The CCTV system was introduced to several streets in the three areas after talks with residents.
Security cameras have been used elsewhere, but only on business or commercial areas.
Clr Liz Smaje, Kirklees Council’s Cabinet member for leisure and neighbourhood services, said: “We want residents to continue working with us and reporting issues to local agencies, to make their area a better place to live.”
Insp David Glover, of Huddersfield South Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “These cameras will only work to our advantage if residents actually report incidents to the police and tell us what is happening.
“We can then look at the footage and follow it up in the appropriate way. The cameras can also be moved, depending on the information we receive.”
Flyers have been given to Hillhouse residents encouraging them to report any incidents to the police.
Awareness-raising sessions have been held with people in Rawthorpe and Dalton, and information was issued in a community bulletin.
The introduction of security cameras is part of a wider scheme in Rawthorpe, Dalton and Hillhouse to encourage more people to contact and work with local services.
Earlier this year Report It cards were distributed to 600 homes in the area. They contain council, police, housing and other agency telephone numbers.
