Your Local Policing Teams (LPTs) have arrived!

Barnsley became the second Local Policing Unit in South Yorkshire on Monday 8 June 2015.

Two LPTs have replaced the previous Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNTs) in Barnsley, ensuring that all communities continue to have a visible, dedicated policing service.

Visit the ‘Changes to Local Policing’ section to read more about our new operating model.

You can phone 101 to contact your LPT or click the map below to visit your team’s site where you will find information about your named officers, local priorities and further contact details.

If you’re not sure when else to call 101, our new help and advice page will guide you in the right direction. You should always dial 999 if it’s an emergency.
