Safer Neighbourhood Services

The Safer Neighbourhood Service (SNS) is led by Barnsley Council and South Yorkshire Police and brings a new approach to community safety and neighbourhood policing.

From April 2017, teams from the council and police will work together in communities to tackle local issues and provide tailored support to vulnerable people and families. 

What these changes mean for you

This new way of working will bring more services and resources together, to provide support for those who need it the most. You'll see more neighbourhood police officers in your community, who'll be working together to understand local needs. They'll be supporting vulnerable people and families to make sure they have access to the support they need; and to prevent any problems from escalating.

The SNS will include neighbourhood teams who'll be tackling the issues that affect our communities the most. The teams will be in place from April 2017, in the bases below, but will be visible and responsible for all communities within Barnsley:

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

How to contact the SNS

To report anti-social behaviour or crime call 101. If it's an emergency call 999.
