So far, I can find no news coverage of this information actually coming from SYP. Great pictures of a new litter of Police dog puppies, the usual information about wanted and missing people, but nothing about this at all.
It's a fact that the area covered by Moss Way holds well over 100, 000 people and its response Policing will now be based miles away from where it currently is. It just adds time, distance and increased risk for officers driving to fast response jobs in the Moss Way area - maybe the public should have been told why the move has taken place?
If that is the case, maybe they should also consider dropping the 'neighbourhood police teams' identity, as its certainly not in your neighbourhood if they've been moved well away, for whatever reason.

Just in case anyone is interested, the local inspector for the south east local policing team is doing a Q and A on their facebook page tomorrow between 6 and 8pm, and hes updating the woodhouse forum in the library at 7pm on thursday about the changes to local policing in woodhouse

Yes according to the figures crime is dropping. But only because people now realize that there is no point reporting any crime because it's a waste of time as nothing gets done about it.

Which figures?

Crime is now increasing, following a prolonged decrease.

My apologies, I thought you may have picked up on the fact I was being ironic.

No bike thefts in the whole of Sheffield for a whole year, wow the police must be doing a great job out there.

A great job at making it very difficult to report a crime.

That website for those crime figures is a load of rubbish! A quick search on a official crime statistics site shows there were 23 bike thefts in the city centre just in July this year!
