Local Policing priorities

Monday, October 8, 2012

Meg Munn MP recently met Chief Superintendent Simon Torr, Sheffield District Commander, to get an update on the work of the police locally. Despite the difficult financial situation she was assured that the police are continuing to prioritise the work in the Safer Neighbourhood teams tackling problems at a local level and preventing anti-social behaviour.

Statistics show that this local policing approach continues to work, with reports of anti-social behaviour down this year by 30%. Shop lifting and vehicle theft have gone up by 5% but overall reported crime is down 9% - continuing a 5 year trend. Sheffield continues to be a safe city with violent crime about half that of Birmingham or Nottingham.

Chief Superintendent Torr assured Meg that the police are not complacent and do have concerns about business premises being burgled. They also continue to see crime prevention as important, and work to encourage people to be vigilant and take sensible precautions so as not to become a victim of crime.

Meg said:

“The drop in most crime in Sheffield is encouraging. The police do a very important job ensuring that local people are protected and feel safe.

I was reassured that South Yorkshire Police continue to view Safer Neighbourhood teams as vital. There is no doubt in my mind that this form of policing has been behind the considerable improvements in policing over the past few years. I know that the police will feel the pressure from budget cuts in the coming years and working together with our communities will be even more important.”
