Police presence on campus
In response to the terrible events in Manchester yesterday, West Yorkshire Police has increased police patrols around the city – including in our neighbourhood.
There is not thought to be any specific threat in this area.
West Yorkshire Polices Chief Constable Dee Collins has today said:
The publics safety remains our top priority and we have already increased patrols of highly visible officers across West Yorkshire. This includes an increase in armed officers at key locations including transport hubs.
This is a concerning time and I hope that our increased presence helps to reassure the public that we are working with our partners to do everything we can to protect the security of the communities we serve.
If you have any concerns or see anything suspicious I would urge you to report it immediately to the Confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789321. In an emergency always dial 999.
