POLICE have been holding drop-in sessions for residents concerned about a spate of break-ins in their area.

Officers from Halifax Central neighbourhood policing team have been inviting people from Park ward to get crime-prevention advice from them at Queen’s Road Neighbourhood Centre.

The sessions are part of a range of measures introduced since concern over break-ins was raised last month.

The steps also include a massive increase in police patrols, broadcasting Bluetooth safety messages, handing out crime-prevention packs and helping residents set up a Neighbourhood Watch group in the area.

Sergeant John Thomas, from the team, said: “Officers are keen to talk to people about any policing concerns they may have.

“We would like members of the public to tell us what they would like from their local police service so that together we can agree local priorities with our community.”

Future sessions will be advertised on the neighbourhood policing team’s website at www.westyorkshire. police.uk/npt.
