Robert Hargreaves Receiving An Award At The SYP Barnsley And District Awards

Congratulations to Robert Hargreaves, one of our neighbourhood officers who was recognised at the South Yorkshire Police Barnsley District Awards earlier this month for his exceptional partnership work with Barnsley Council and the police.

Robert and colleagues received the Outstanding Problem Solving Award for their effective and innovative work in tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB) whilst working on the Summer Lane estate to tackle county lines gangs, drug use, and drug dealing.

Robert played a key role in joint operations and visits to both victims and perpetrators on the estate before sharing vital information with the Police and SNT which meant they could build their cases to tackle the issues and to go to court.

Everyone deserves to feel safe where they live and we’re working closely with partners to make sure our estates are safe and happy places to live in. You can read more about how we're working to tackle ASB and how to report any issues you may have here. 

Robert’s unwavering commitment and dedication significantly contributed to improving the quality of life for residents in the area and it’s a great example of effective partnership working and collaboration with residents for a positive outcome.

Well done to Robert and all involved in this important work!
