Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Alison Bywater

Hi All and welcome to the South East Neighbourhood Team pages.

I am Inspector Ali (Alison) Bywater and I have recently taken over Neighbourhood Policing in the East and South East of Sheffield.

I have 17 years policing experience in a number of portfolios including Response, Neighbourhoods and Operational Police Training. I spent the earlier part of my career in Barnsley and moved across to Sheffield from 2016 onwards, being lucky enough to secure the position as South East Neighbourhood Inspector in November 2021, having previously had responsibility for Sheffield City Centre. I am immensely proud to have this role and the responsibility that comes with it. I am very passionate about my communities and about the work my Team do on a day-to-day basis to keep our areas as safe as possible for all who live, work and visit.

My Team has responsibility for the following areas - Manor, Arbourthorne, Norfolk Park, Gleedless Common, Heeley, Park Hill, Wybourn,  Darnall, Tinsley, Attercliffe, Woodthorpe, Richmond, Handsworth, Woodhouse, Beighton, Westfield, Mosborough, Sothall, Owlthorpe, Waterthorpe, Halfway, Hackenthorpe, Frecheville, Birley, Jaunty, Base Green, Gleadless Town End, Crystal Peaks and Meadowhall.

I am keen to hear about any concerns you have, and also about community groups and networks we can involve ourselves in. Our PCSOs regularly host Pop In Police Stations across our area and are looking for new places to visit to be able to do this, offering their support and reassurance whilst doing so. If you have a venue we could use, please get in touch. We are actively looking for opportunities for engagement and to build relationships with those in our communities.

I have a fantastic, committed and hard-working team of PCs and PCSOs who are there to help you, so get in touch and let us know what you need from the Team.

Your local police station is:

Moss Way Police Station

Moss Way, Sheffield

Off-road bikes are an issue.

We did...

After receiving multiple reports of nuisance vehicles and dangerous off-road bikers, we have worked with partners to target harden the area. By putting practical deterrents and high-visibility patrols in place we have started to see a reduction in incidents. Recently a stolen motorbike was recovered from Norfolk Park.
