Police have vowed to focus on tackling three crime priorities as part of a co-ordinated plan to make Barnsley a safer place to live, work and play
The Safer Barnsley Partnership Plan, developed by the Safer Communities Partnership, will work towards three priorities from 2016 to 2020, including protecting vulnerable people, tackling crime and anti-social behaviour and promoting community tolerance and respect.
Residents are now being urged to have their say on the scheme and feedback will be used to develop delivery plans for the three priority areas.
Tim Innes, South Yorkshire Police district commander and co-chair of Safer Barnsley Partnership, said: “Getting feedback from local people is essential in helping us to continue to evolve and make further improvements to ensure people are safe and feel safe. We’ll make sure that views given as part of the consultation are taken into account and used to inform the development of the partnership plan.
“The plan will be reviewed on an annual basis to make sure it’s consistent with local needs and used to influence how community safety resources are used within the borough.”
The public consultation is open until September 2. To view the plan visit www.barnsley.gov.uk/sbp
