What Would Make Your Neighbourhood Feel Safer?

Thursday November 1 2012

A CONSULTATION to find out how the public think their own neighbourhoods should be policed closes tomorrow.

South Yorkshire Police Authority says the responses will help them formulate their priorities for policing over the next few years.

Charles Perryman, chair of the Police Authority, said: “We want to know what Neighbourhood Policing means to the people of South Yorkshire. Responses need to be as imaginative and creative as possible.

“The information gained from the consultation will enable the Police and Crime Commissioner to hit the ground running and identify what are the priorities for the people of South Yorkshire in the year ahead.”

You can make suggestions through Twitter @sypoliceauth or email haveyoursay@syjs.gov.uk. Deadline is November 2.

It made us wonder though - what would make you feel safer in your neighbourhood? And what does neighbourhood policing mean to you?

Our neighbourhood in Royston is generally quiet, we've a had a couple of youth's hedge hopping but thats about it but at the other end of village on Midland Road theres a police car every 2 mins away and ive never once seen them stop somebody...

More of those seven foot highcard-board cut out bobbies placed in strategic places would be cheap way to reduce crime.?? They seem more effective than some of those dwarf sized female bobbies we see parading around town. ??
