Residents Thanked For Playing Their Part In Incident Free Weekend of Fun

Police have praised residents for playing their part in a long weekend of fun in Huddersfield in which scores of people attended incident free events in the town.   

The Huddersfield Neighbourhood Police Team said officers had not recorded a single incident or crime report at the events in what was a busy weekend of street parties and carnivals. 

Officers from the NPT provided a policing presence at a number of events from Friday through to Sunday including the Lindley Street Party, Lindley 10K and Deighton Carnival on Saturday.

NPT officers spoke with local people at the carnival regarding community issues and children were able to dress up in “mini police uniforms” and have a tour around police vehicles.

The team also attended at Ravensknowle Park for the annual gala on Sunday and again spoke with residents and youngsters who joined in the fun.

Police also engaged with concert goers who passed through Huddersfield Town Centre for the Green Day concert attended by 33,500 people at the John Smith’s stadium on Saturday.

Insp Graham Dyson of the Huddersfield NPT, said: ““It was really pleasing to see thousands of people enjoying the weekend across the whole town.  

“Also we had no calls regarding incidents at any of the events which is again a real testament to the efforts that the organisers put in to make their events the best they can for the community.”

He added: “These events really showcase the work that goes on in our communities by local people wanting to highlight what a great community we live in.

“This allows officers to engage and talk to people on a really informal basis, and builds trust within our communities.

“This informal audience also has a serious touch with officers being able to discuss and advise of Personal Safety and Crime Prevention which is key priority for us.

“A real ‘well done’ from me and the team for all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make these events happen.”
