Police set to listen in south Rotherham
The Rotherham South Neighbourhood Policing Team

MEMBERS of a policing team will be asking people what they want for Christmas.

But they won’t be journeying out on a special police sleigh, officers will be making festive fact-finding visits to communities across the area.

The Rotherham South neighbourhood policing team will hold drop-in sessions where people can speak to officers.

Insp Caroline Bakewell said: “Listening to the views of the community is vital in our fight against crime.

“Throughout this week we will be increasing night-time patrols in the Wickersley area following on from concerns raised about anti-social behaviour.

“We are also continuing our operations around tackling the problem of boy racers in the Dinnington area as a result of intelligence from local residents.

“If there is something in your area that is concerning you, we need to know so please do get in touch.”

The drop in sessions are at:

  • Aston Service Centre – Wednesdays 11am to noon;
  • Dinnington Resource Centre – Wednesdays 1.30pm to 3pm;
  • Treeton Reading Rooms – Thursdays 10.30am to 11.30am;
  • Maltby Ascension Centre – Thursdays 11am to 1pm.

People can follow the Rotherham South neighbourhood policing team on Twitter @RothSouthNHP or on the Rotherham South NHP facebook page.
