The Police.UK site lets you examinethe statistics about crime in our area Or any other area you are interested in - you can choose to see crimes identified by type as graphs showing trends over time or located on maps.


The site is easy to use and I found it quite reassuring - showing that fear of crime is probably more a problem than crime itself! Click on the logo to go to the site:


              Policing Pledge



Alwoodley is now part of the Wetherby Neighbourhood Policing Team. Their pledge is to:

1. Always treat you fairly, with dignity and respect, ensuring that you have fair access to our services at a time that is reasonable and suitable for you. 

2. Provide you with information about your dedicated Neighbourhood Policing Team. 

3. Ensure we and other police patrols are visible and on your patch at times when they will be most effective and when you tell us you most need them. We will ensure that your team are not taken away from neighbourhood business more than is absolutely necessary. We will spend at least 80% of our time visibly working in your neighbourhood, tackling your priorities. Staff turnover will be minimised. 

4. Respond to every message directed to us within 24 hours and where necessary, provide a more detailed response as soon as we can.

5. Deploy officers to emergencies immediately, getting to you safely and as quickly as possible. We will aim to get             to you within 15 minutes. 

6. Ensure that, if attendance is needed, the most appropriate resource is sent, and:

o If you are vulnerable or upset aim to be with you within 60 minutes.

o If you are calling about a neighbourhood priority and attendance is required, we will aim to be with you within 60 minutes.

o Alternatively, if appropriate, we will make an appointment to see you at a time that fits in with your life and within 48 hours.

o If agreed that attendance is not necessary we will give you advice, answer your questions and/or put you in touch with someone who can help.

7. Arrange public meetings to agree your priorities, at least once a month, giving you a chance to meet your local team with other members of your community. 

8. Provide monthly updates on progress and on local crime and policing issues.

9. If you have been a victim of crime agree with you how often you would like to be kept informed of progress in your case and for how long. You have the right to be kept informed at least every month if you wish for as long as is reasonable.

10. Acknowledge any dissatisfaction with the service you have received within 24 hours of reporting it to us. To help us fully resolve the matter, discuss with you how it will be handled, give you an opportunity to talk in person to someone about your concerns and agree with you what will be done about them and how quickly.
