Joining Forces

As part of our borough-wide initiative to help provide reassurance and keep residents safe, we're 'Joining Forces' with our key partners.

Joining Forces brings together key members of staff from the council and South Yorkshire Police. As part of the move, South Yorkshire Police's safer neighbourhood service along with our markets and parking services will be based at the Glass Works. This allows the delivery of our partnership approach from a central location at the heart of the town centre redevelopment.

What this means for you

You'll see more uniformed services under the Joining Forces banner, reflecting our joined-up approach to improving security and safety, as well as providing reassurance, support and advice.
