EDLINGTON station reopened today (Monday) as part of South Yorkshire Police’s efforts to increase its presence in the village.

Chief Supt Shaun Morley said: “Neighbourhood policing is a key part of our long-term strategy for Doncaster, and across South Yorkshire.

“With a policing team at the centre of Edlington village, we can continue to build on the work we have already started.

“We’ve chosen Edlington as the first area to benefit from its own community team because of the policing need there, particularly in terms of antisocial behaviour issues.”

A team of one sergeant, four PCs and four PCSOs will work from the station, on Main Avenue.

Don Valley MP Nick Fletcher said: “This is a positive step for the community of Edlington.

“The police force across Doncaster do a fantastic job and this station will enable them to continue fighting crime and keeping the public safe.”

Mayor of Doncaster Ros Jones added: “I am delighted to see neighbourhood policing, in partnership with Doncaster Council staff, back in Edlington.

“I am sure that over a period of time, we will see more neighbourhood hubs within other communities.”
