Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Alec Gibbons

Hello, I am Inspector Alec Gibbons and I’m responsible for neighbourhood policing in the North East of Sheffield. As a team, we are committed to tackling the crime, anti-social behaviour and issues that matter to you and we work hard to make a difference.

My officers are some of the most proactive in Sheffield, hitting the streets every single day to ensure our communities are safe places to live and work. We are proud to have the support of local people and to reduce crime and put long term problem solving in place, we must work together.

Are you worried about something where you live? Do you want to tell us something that might help with our activity? Or would you like us to get involved in a local community group? I want to hear from you, so please get in touch with me, or any officers on the team, we’re here to listen.
