5:54pm Monday 23rd December 2013 in News
Police tackled doorstep crime by targeting cold-calling 'hotspots in Bradford over the weekend.
The areas are considered vulnerable to doorstep crime, and residents have said that they do not want cold callers.
Sgt Mark Otter said: "A number of criminals do pose as doorstep salesman and bogus utility company officials and the implementation of these Cold Calling Zones helps us to raise awareness over the type of tactics often employed by doorstep criminals."
