Sheffield's most violent neighbourhoods: The 21 districts with most reports of violent crime and sex offences

Official figures have shown which neighbourhoods in Sheffield have seen the most reports of violence and sexual offences in 2023

Sheffield is often described as a safe city - but figures have revealed which districts in the city have seen the most violent crime in the last year.

We have taken the official figures provided by Sheffield Council’s Local Insights, which is based on official South Yorkshire Police data over the 12 months from March 2023 to February 2024. It has been divided into 71 neighbourhoods.

The figures show the 12 month total of neighbourhood-level incidents of violent crime recorded by police, and as a rate per 1,000 residents.

The figures for violence do not include robberies, but do include sexual offences. The incidents are recorded in the area where they occurred, and the rate is stated as the number of cases per person living in the neighbourhood.

Sheffield is one of the safest cities according the same figures, which rank it as having the least violent crime per head of population out of the big provincial UK cities - Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield.
