Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Richard Mangham
I am Inspector Rich Mangham and I am the neighbourhood inspector for the Central, North and North East Wards which are serviced from three policing hubs within those communities.
I have 18 years policing experience across South Yorkshire and five of those years have been spent in Barnsley or neighbourhood policing.
I have been working in Barnsley since 2022 and have really enjoyed getting to know the communities and meeting the people who live and work here. I am passionate about neighbourhood policing and see working with our partners to make Barnsley a safer place to live and work.
I have been pleased to see that this is a vision shared by the hard working and dedicated officers on our teams and that the local partners, communities, and councillors are eager to support this goal.
We use partnership working, along with a problem-solving approach to issues in order to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour while providing support in other areas of day-to-day life through signposting people to our partners.
Through our 'you said, we did' initiative and our online content we update you on work done in our area and on certain upcoming engagement events you may wish to participate in. If you see our officers on patrol please don't hesitate to stop and say hello, we are eager to hear from local people and those who commute into the area for work and recreation.
I look forward to working with our partners, local councillors and the people of Barnsley in the future.
