Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Kevin Smith
Hello and welcome to the Sheffield North West NPT team pages, I’m Kevin Smith and I’m your local neighbourhood inspector.
As a team we have responsibility for some brilliant parts of the city, with a great mix of urban and rural communities. This unique blend creates opportunities for us to be innovative and look for new ways to deliver our policing priorities and keep you safe.
One of the most important things to me is ensuring we have strong and solid relationships with you, the public, and that we hear from you about issues where you live. We’re a proactive team and we like to act on what you tell us, that way we know we’re tackling what really matters.
Your neighbourhood team should be your direct point of contact for anything that’s bothering you, but also to share good news and opportunities that we can get involved with.
As a result of a survey we commissioned in late 2020 our priorities are:
You told us that you are concerned about burglaries in your area. We are working to reduce burglaries by working with our partners, and by locking up burglars.
2) Drugs dealing
You told us that drug dealing was a concern in your areas, and you wanted police action to tackle the issue. We are particularly focussed on protecting young people and vulnerable people who are being groomed by drug dealers and forced into a life of crime.
3) Road safety
You told us that speeding and road safety was one of your key concerns. We will work with our partners, and put in place strong community measures like community speed watch to increase surveillance on the roads and to make speeding less "consequence free". We were at the forefront of a community based approach to "Close Pass" offences, and will continue to innovate and come up with new ways to make the roads safer for you.
