Safer Neighbourhood Services

The Safer Neighbourhood Service (SNS) is a new approach to community safety and neighbourhood policing in Barnsley.

it involves the council and police working together in communities to tackle local issues. Together, they provide tailored support to vulnerable people and families. 

What these changes mean for you

This way of working brings more services and resources together to provide support for those who need it the most. More police officers will be visible in your community. They'll work together to understand local needs and make sure people get the support they need. Their aim will be to tackle problems before they can escalate.

The SNS will include neighbourhood teams based in: 

  • Royston Police Station
  • Goldthorpe Police Station
  • Kendray Police Station (Rae House)
  • Commerce House in the town centre  

The four teams will be visible in, and responsible for, communities across the whole borough. They'll tackle the issues that affect our communities the most.
