Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Kevin Smith
Hello and welcome to the Sheffield North West NPT team pages, I’m Kevin Smith and I’m your local neighbourhood inspector.
As a team we have responsibility for some brilliant parts of the city, with a great mix of urban and rural communities. This unique blend creates opportunities for us to be innovative and look for new ways to deliver our policing priorities and keep you safe.
One of the most important things to me is ensuring we have strong and solid relationships with you, the public, and that we hear from you about issues where you live. We’re a proactive team and we like to act on what you tell us, that way we know we’re tackling what really matters.
Your neighbourhood team should be your direct point of contact for anything that’s bothering you, but also to share good news and opportunities that we can get involved with.
The priorities for the Sheffield North West Neighbourhood Policing Team are:
Drug dealing and drug misuse
Protecting vulnerable victims and victims of repeat crime
Organised crime is a concern to us.
Our Walkley Team have been responding to reports of drug dealing by carrying out proactive patrols near to Edward Street flats and the surrounding estate. The purpose of these recent operations is to build up intelligence and stop searches are now being routinely carried out in this area. Vehicle checks in the area have led to controlled drugs being seized and taken off the streets.
Dangerous parking is an issue in our area.
Over recent months our Deepcar Team have been tackling dangerous parking and driving at beauty spots in the North West of the city, particularly around local reservoirs. This activity was a direct response to comments received by the team via social media and has resulted in a number of fines and warnings being issued.
We regularly hold online Q&As on our social media accounts. Take a look to find out when our next meeting is.
