Changes In Reporting Anti Social Behaviour in Sheffield

30 Jan

On Thursday 1 February, there will be important changes to the way Sheffield residents report antisocial behaviour issues.

From this date, you will need to report certain antisocial behaviour issues, such as noise nuisance, non-hate crime related graffiti and lost, stray or barking dogs, to Sheffield City Council, not to South Yorkshire Police. You can do this by calling 0114 2734567 or visiting

A full breakdown of antisocial behaviour issues and whose responsibility these are can be found below:

South Yorkshire Police Sheffield City Council
Begging Abandoned vehicles / parking issues
Dealing/taking drugs and drinking alcohol in the street Dead animals
Gangs and youths drinking in parks Dog fouling
Harassment or intimidation Fly posting
Fly-tipping (happening now) Dumped, fly-tipped waste (nobody present)
Hate Crime related graffiti (motivated by prejudice or intolerance towards an individual’s nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, identity, sexual orientation or disability) Graffiti (Non Hate Crime related)

As well as these changes, from 1 February, if you call 0114 2734567 out of standard office hours to report concerns for vulnerable adults and children, and matters relating to homeless people, you will be dealt with by a Sheffield City Council call handler, not a police call handler.

Chief Constable’s – Neighbourhood Policing Events

25 Apr


South Yorkshire Police will be reintroducing neighbourhood policing to Sheffield in the next few months. To ensure the Neighbourhood teams provide an excellent service in the most effective and productive way possible, the Chief Constable would like to consult with communities and partners within Sheffield to gain a thorough understanding of their needs, expectations and concerns about Neighbourhood policing, so that feedback can be considered fully in developing the new policing model.

These events are being held to gain local community opinion and we would welcome your attendance at either: 

  • Vestry Hall, Burngreave – 3rd May 2017 at 6pm; or
  • St Mary’s Church, Bramall Ln – 9th May 2017 at 6pm. 

We look forward to meeting you.
