A message is being delivered by a new police operation - anti-social behaviour will not be tolerated.
Operation Deeplake is a multi- agency operation that is up and running throughout Morley, Tingley and surrounding areas, led by Morley Neighbourhood Policing Team.
It sees officers and PCSOs patrolling areas of the town with representatives from partner agencies such as housing services and youth services, Leeds City Council and the Anti-Social Behaviour Team, detecting and tackling anti-social behaviour that is often a problem in our community.
Officers have spoken with many young people, passing on the message that if they are found to be involved in any instances of causing anti-social behaviour it will be not be tolerated and those people who live in council-owned homes could face being evicted.
Acting Sgt Christopher Dibbs said: “Operation Deeplake will continue as long as there are issues to resolve and it is hoped with the communities cooperation we can all work together to solve neighbourhood issues.”
The next operation by Morley NPT will take place again in the near future officers are continuing to work with council officers to solve anti-social behaviour related issues.
Anti-social behaviour can be anything from nuisance neighbours and noise to abuse and intimidation - anything that causes distress to a community.
