Leeds police visit 30 children in Middleton in anti social behaviour crackdown
Police have visited the homes of more than 30 children in Leeds in a crackdown on anti-social behaviour (ASB).
Officers working with Leeds City Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Team (LASBT) have targeted the Middleton area in recent weeks.
More than 30 children have had a visit from police and two anti-social behaviour contracts, a written contract where a young person agrees not to carry out ASB, have been issued.
The team has issued a further 14 ASB Injunction warnings to young people in the area, as well as one injunction and three injunction applications.
An ASB Injunction often prohibits a young person from visiting specific locations to crack down on problematic behaviour.
In a statement issued on Twitter, a LASBT spokesperson said: "Team Leodis along with LASBT South have been working in the Middleton area tackling youth ASB.
"So far over 30 youths have been visited by West Yorkshire Police officers, two ABCs signed up, 14 ASBI warnings, one injunction and three injunction applications ready to go through court!
