Residents set new local priorities

RESIDENTS in Hebden Bridge have set a new set of priorities for police in the area.

At the recent Partners and Communities Together (PACT) meeting, residents told officers they would like them to increase targeted patrols in rural areas of the Calder ward.

Other priorities include taking enforcement action against drivers using mobile phones and those who are speeding. Police will also increase patrols in visitor car parks to reduce reports of theft from vehicles.
