Over the last year or so West Yorkshire Police have gone through many changes, some of which have meant old former boundaries have changed. Some boundaries have extended and some have been removed.

West Yorkshire Police are working more closely with many more Community Partnerships which does include the Wetherby Crime Panel.

In view of these changes it was felt it was also time for the Crime Panel name to change to bring it more into line with many other partnerships. In view of this the Crime Panel is now being called

"The Crime Prevention Panel - Outer North East Leeds."

The Crime Panel attends many events in the community and are looking for more volunteers to assist with their crime prevention work. If you are interested in becoming involved please contact or

The Wetherby & District Crime Panel is a voluntary group of people who work together with West Yorkshire Police in matters relating to crime prevention in the local community.

Membership of the Panel is drawn from individuals who live or work in the area together with representatives from Wetherby Town Council and most of the Parish Councils in the area.

Funding is provided by local businesses, Parish Councils and other various local sources.

Do You Have Adequate Security?

A crime pattern has emerged over the past years of House Burglaries being committed where forcing the lock on UPVC doors has been the method of entry.

UPVC doors and its associated 'Euro profile Lock' are fitted to many houses and many older locks may be below current standards. New 'Anti Snap' locks have been developed and these improved locks are now available as retro fit to existing UPVC doors, TS 007 3* Standard. There’s more info here

Reduce the risk of Burglary in your home by using this 5 point check list.

Do you have….

  1. A 5 lever BS3621 sashlock/deadlock fitted to your main wooden door?
  2. A 5 lever BS3621 sashlock or mortice bolts fitted to your other wooden doors?
  3. An up to date snap / break secure cylinder fitted to all UPVC and composite doors?
  4. Locking handles and a shootbolt locking system on all your UPVC windows?
  5. Key operated locks fitted to all windows?

For more information contact your local Crime Reduction Officer on 101
