Barnsley Council and partners join forces for Days of Action

Barnsley Council's Safer Neighbourhood Service have been Joining Forces with partners for Days of Action in the borough in recent weeks.

They were out and about in the North and North East areas with Waste Management, South Yorkshire Police and South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue.

The teams had a busy couple of days with activity, including the erection of a pop-up police station, house checks on private rented properties, litter picks, emptying contaminated bins, and surveys that saw direct engagement with residents.

In total, more than 30 contaminated bins were emptied and returned while other issues, such as drainage problems, have been raised with the relevant departments at the council to be addressed.

Wendy Lowder, Executive Director for Adults and Communities, said: "These Days of Action are important, and I would like to thank the Safer Neighbourhood Service, our partners and the other teams who joined them for the part they played in making the days a success.

"The Days of Action help to gather intelligence and build relationships with the local community, who we want to feel as safe as possible in their homes.

"Anyone wishing to report anti-social behaviour can do so by calling 101 or sending an email to safer@barnsley.gov.uk and providing as much information as possible. Always call 999 in an emergency."

More uniformed services will be Joining Forces to improve security and safety and provide reassurance, support, and advice across the borough: www.barnsley.gov.uk/joiningforces.
