South Yorkshire Police asks residents where they feel unsafe on streets
Police chiefs in South Yorkshire want to know where residents feel unsafe, so that officers can be deployed to those areas.
An online personal safety survey has been produced by South Yorkshire Police, with the force keen to target activity in areas of concern identified by local people.
The force said: “If you have concerns about your personal safety, we’re keen to know more.
“We’re gathering information about the places in which people feel unsafe so we can target some of our activities and put the emphasis back on the offender and not those who feel at risk.
“We know that some of the recent tragic events we have seen elsewhere in the country have added to and highlighted those concerns. We can help but we need more information to ensure we target the right people and places. We’re keen to hear the views and experiences of as many people as possible.
“We want South Yorkshire to be and feel like a safe place to live. We will use the results of this survey to work with the Police and Crime Commissioner and partners to tackle any safety concerns.
“In particular, we want women to feel confident to seek help and support if they need to.”
The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete and all information provided is confidential.
