Superintendent Paul Ferguson, who led on the week of action, comments: “Our neighbourhood policing officers are at the heart of the community within South Yorkshire. Last week was about teams coming together to make a huge impact, galvanise action with partners and the public, and really show what we do best.”

During the week, neighbourhood officers in Sheffield, Doncaster and Rotherham conducted warrants which took over £5.4million worth of cannabis off the streets of South Yorkshire.

Supt Ferguson adds: “It is great that we can showcase what fantastic work our officers do for our public.

“It is so important that our officers continue to engage with the local communities we serve. Building and maintaining these relationships allow us to engage more with those who live and work in the area, listening and understanding what concerns they have.”
