Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Peter Spratt

Hi, I am Inspector Peter Spratt. I cover the Central, North and North East Wards. There are three neighbourhood teams that cover each of these ward areas, working from three different police stations.

I have over 14 years’ experience as a police officer and have previously spent a significant part of my career within neighbourhood policing in Sheffield. I am delighted to have been posted to Barnsley since May 2021; it is evident that our officers are driven by a desire to make a real difference in the communities they serve, creating a safer and more enjoyable environment for those who live and work here. It is also exciting to see the level of investment in Barnsley, particularly in the regeneration of the town centre.

Neighbourhood policing has great benefits, it enables us to work closely with the public, community groups, partner agencies and businesses to be able to reduce crime and solve re-occurring and community issues. Please be sure to contact your local teams and follow us on social media, to stay informed with what we are doing and engagement events running in your community to come and speak to us. This will enable us to be part of the community and adapt problem solving approaches to local issues.

Your local police station is:

The Glassworks Building

Barnsley Town Centre,
S70 1GW
