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. ??

CTV on every street. Plus ID cards for all. If you are not doing wrong there is nothing to fear. CTV IS GREAT.. Trouble is the authorities have not got the funds to do this. Central government should pay for this.

When I was a youngsters the fact that the local bobby could walk around the corner at any time and the fact that they knew you and your parents was a great deterrent.
More beat bobbies please!
