Police in Sheffield are putting on a show of force today (Wednesday 1 December) across the city as part of Operation Duxford.
Highly visible uniformed officers are taking part in Duxford to help reassure law-abiding residents and crack down on criminal behaviour.
You will see an increased police presence across the city as teams including Neighbourhoods, mounted and roads policing, tackle the issues that matter to our communities.
Officers have already been carrying out a range of activities including executing a drugs warrant in the Hillsborough area of the city and a dangerous dogs warrant in Darnall. Activity will continue throughout the day and into the evening.
Sheffield District Commander Chief Superintendent Shelley Hemsley, said:
“We want the people of Sheffield to know that we are listening to their concerns.
“Officers are out across the city in a show of strength all today taking action and showing those intent on criminal behaviour that it will not be tolerated.”
“Teams have been out already and made 5 arrests, uncovered a suspected cannabis farm, recovered 13 dogs and recorded a number of traffic offences.
“This work is ongoing.
“It is vital that people in Sheffield have the confidence to come forward and tell us what is happening in the city and work with us to target criminality.
“If you see officers out and about please take the opportunity to speak to them and pass on any concerns you may have about crime in your area.”
You can keep up to date with results from the day on the SYP social media accounts and local Sheffield NPT pages.
