Hunslet crime priorities discussed at meeting

Holbeck Neighbourhood Policing Team’s new Sergeant, Di Whiteside, attended the latest Hunslet Tenants and Residents Association meeting along with PCSOs Kay Kennedy and Julie Rice.

West Yorkshire Police logoSergeant Whiteside gave an update on the crime statistics for the Hunslet area over the last month, which were three domestic burglaries, three shed/garage burglaries, two damages to dwellings, two damages to motor vehicles and 12 thefts from motor vehicles.

Advice was given about removing valuables, particularly Sat Navs from vehicles. Segeant Whiteside also gave the residents details of the new Dogwatch scheme, which is being launched by the NPT.

The Hunslet Local Priorities were discussed and it was agreed that the priority at Morrisons, Penny Hill centre was no longer required as this is no longer an issue. The priority of antisocial behaviour on Hemmingway Garth is to remain.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday 1 August at 6.30pm at the Church of the Nazarene, Grove Road, Hunslet.
