Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Katie Rowland Wilson

My name is Katie Rowland-Wilson and I’m currently T/Inspector for the fantastic Sheffield South West Neighbourhood Team. We cover a brilliant and very diverse part of the city and I’m am very excited about building relationships and tackling issues right across our patch.

I have served as an officer for almost two decades now, in both frontline response policing and neighbourhoods. I have worked extensively with partner agencies and the voluntary sector during my time with South Yorkshire Police which is vital if we are to develop strong and safe communities.

So you know if you’re in the right place, we cover Dore, Totley, Nether Edge, Sharrow, Eccleall, Gleadles Valley, Lowedges, Jordanthorpe, Beauchief, Greenhill and Graves Park.

I’m very lucky to have two great sergeants on the team, as well as a really proactive group of officers and PCSOs who are fully embedded in their communities.

Please do contact us with any concerns, details about local community projects or groups, or simply to say hello!

The results from our most recent survey conducted in July and August 2021 indicates that the things that matter the most to our communities are:

  • Residential Burglary
  • Speeding
  • Drug dealing and supply of drugs

Residential Burglary was the issue that was of most concern to our communities.

We did...

The Inspector for area attends a weekly Neighbourhood Crime overview meeting. As part of this she ensures that there is a daily review of all residential burglaries. This helps us look for patterns in offending, identify offenders and get them quickly arrested and also provide our communities with information around Crime Prevention to seek to prevent opportunist offending. This information is provided to all of our teams so that we can all seek to reduce residential burglary and the impact on our communities.

Speeding Vehicles is a concern across a number of our ward areas.

We did...

We have been working closely with our partners in the Safety Camera Partnership and Sheffield City Council to tackle these issues. Our PCSOs conduct a speed camera operation at least twice and a week and this is fed into the Partnership around enforcement opportunities in hotspot areas.

We have regular engagement events which are advertised on our Facebook pages.
