Residents of the Greenland Estate, Darnall, raised issues about safety and crime in the area so South Yorkshire Police's Darnall and Tinsley Safer Neighbourhood Team organised the action week.

They worked in partnership with Sheffield Council, Sheffield Homes, Streetforce and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, and Attercliffe MP Mr Betts met Frank Turner, chair of the Greenland Tenants and Residents Association, to see how residents were responding to the initiative.

Inspector Adrian Fox, from the Darnall and Tinsley Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: "This was an ideal way for the different agencies and the community to show how we come together to improve the quality of life for local residents"
