Major threats

There are a number of major threats that we must face together as a region such as serious organised crime, terrorism which can include firearms and drugs offences. West Yorkshire hosts the Regional Organised Crime Unit, the North East Counter Terrorism Unit and the National Police Air Service and is therefore responsible for coordinating the regional response. Even when not "organised" certain crimes have a dramatic effect on people's feelings of safety such as violent crime and bringing the perpetrators to justice often requires support from regional assets too. I will make sure that all organisations involved understand these threats and can respond effectively.
