Officers have today (19 December) carried out a range of operations in the Burngreave area of Sheffield, as they continue to tackle community concerns over crime and anti-social behaviour.
The Burngreave Neighbourhood Policing Team have conducted speed gun operations, executed search warrants and also spoken to local residents about community safety and issues around street begging.
Temporary Police Sergeant Ben Hall who led today’s activity said: “Recent public surveys highlighted several main areas of concern for people living in Burngreave, these included vehicle related anti-social behaviour and parking issues. For this reason we’ve really focused on targeting these areas today – with the help of our partners in parking services and our own roads policing group.”
Today’s activity has resulted in six arrests; offences have included drug driving, driving without insurance, driving without a licence and failure to appear at court for assault.”
We also successfully executed a search warrant at a property – where we recovered what we believe to be stolen items.”
Working alongside parking services, we have issued 35 tickets for parking offences and we have also given 10 traffic offence reports to drivers for speeding.”
We are incredibly pleased with how today’s operations have gone – we hope this sends a message to people living in this area, who are committing crimes and having an impact on the lives of others, that we are taking action to stop this behaviour.”
