Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Caroline Bakewell

Hello! I’m Caroline Bakewell and I’m the Inspector covering Rotherham North.  I have 21 years service and have worked in Neighbourhood Policing in Sheffield as well as the south of Rotherham.

If you live in Rawmarsh, Swinton, Parkgate, Kilnhurst, Dalton, Wath, Manvers, Wentworth, West Melton, Brampton, Cortonwood, Harley, Manor Farm, Dalton, East Herringthorpe or Woodlaithes, we are your policing team

Much of the area we cover is residential so getting to know our communities, hosting regular drop-ins and conducting targeted patrols around burglary are a few of our main priorities at the moment.

I’d love to hear from you about any concerns you have, but also any community groups or networks we can get involved in. We’re always looking for opportunities to build relationships with local people – so please get in touch.

I am based at Rawmarsh Police Station and invite you to follow the team on Twitter @RothNorthNPT and Facebook RotherhamNorthNPT

In November, a male handed himself in to the team following a warrant being issued for his arrest due to fly tipping in the local area. The court ordered a fine and costs totaling £2,500.
