From bungee slides to breaking down doors, there was a bit of everything this Tuesday when Operation Duxford was back with a bang in Rotherham.
Enforcement, safeguarding and engagement activity took place across the district to tackle crime, assist vulnerable people and offer advice, notably in Ferham, Eastwood, Manvers, Masbrough, Brinsworth and Rotherham town centre.
During the day, officers made five arrests – two for drugs offences, two for GBH and possession of an offensive weapon, and one for burglary.
Drugs, cash and vehicles were all seized as part of the day of action, including three vehicles, £4,500 in cash, six cannabis plants, and quantities of dry cannabis and cocaine.
In the north of the district, Chief Constable Stephen Watson and Chief Inspector Paul Ferguson joined PC Brett Thompson at Waterfront Golf Club in Wath where staff and pro golfers gave their time teaching local youngsters from Swinton Comprehensive School how to play the game. And nearby at Cortonwood Retail Park, members of Rotherham North NHP team spent the day offering crime prevention advice at a pop-up stall.
Down south, high-visibility antisocial behaviour patrols took place in the Brinsworth area involving RMBC Youth Services and PCSOs from Rotherham South NHP, as well as test-purchasing operations at key licensing premises. There were also crime prevention and water safety events at Rother Valley Country Park involving South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue, warning of the dangerous consequences of swimming in open water.
