Chief Superintendent Shaun Morley, who oversees the policing of Doncaster as a whole, said: “Our communities remain at the heart of everything we do, and going in to 2020 this is going to remain our absolute priority.

“Throughout 2019, we have worked incredibly hard across Doncaster to ensure our processes are right, to enable us to respond quickly and effectively to you - our public.

“What has greatly assisted us with this is the investment we have made in neighbourhood policing.

“In 2020, we’ll see a continued uplift to both our neighbourhood and response functions which will mean more cops in your area, responding quickly and efficiently to any problems you may have.

“This will be kick-started with the reopening of Edlington Police Station in February, which will be an incredibly positive step for the area.”

He added: “I would like to say a big thank you to everyone in Doncaster. Thank you for your support over the last 12 months, for every ‘hello’ and ‘well done’ you’ve said to an officer, staff member or PCSO.

“I would also like to say a special thank you to the residents of Fishlake and the surrounding villages and to everyone who pulled together to help during the flooding.

“It really showed the spirit of Doncaster, and I’m incredibly proud to work with you.”
