Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Katie Rowland Wilson

My name is Temporary Inspector Katie Rowland Wilson and I’m the person in charge of neighbourhood policing in the South West of Sheffield. If you live in the ward areas of Sharrow & Nether Edge, Gleadless, Graves Park, Dore & Totley, Beauchief & Greenhill or Ecclesall then I’m the one who sets localised policing priorities in your area.

I am lucky to be responsible for some fantastic, vibrant, and diverse communities and having grown up in Sharrow, I’m really passionate about ensuring local people feel safe. Like most parts of Sheffield, we have some challenges, but as a team we’re working really hard to build strong and long-lasting relationships with local people, community groups and partners.

To make the biggest difference, we have to work together, and I’d urge you to contact me or any of my officers or PCSOs to talk to us about what’s worrying you. We are here to listen to your concerns, support you and take action on what matters to you and your community.

Your local police station is:

Woodseats Police Station

S8 0SL

The results from our most recent survey indicate that the things that matter the most to our communities are:

  • Burglary
  • Speeding
  • Drug dealing and supply of drugs

Protecting our vulnerable people is important to us.

We did...

In February our Gleadless Team have been cracking down on those who are taking advantage of vulnerable people in the community. Recent patrols and local intelligence have helped the team identify victims of cuckooing, where drug dealers take over the home of someone vulnerable. We have now taken steps to protect these people - these patrols have also resulted in significant seizures of Class A drugs and arrests for possession with intent to supply.

Vehicle crime and traffic offences are of concern to us.

We did...

We know that dangerous driving, parking and speeding are concerns for local people and we are regularly carrying out speed operations across our area. In recent months we’ve been reacting directly to suggestions made on our social media channels, deploying PCSOs to speeding and dangerous parking hotspots.

On Wednesday 31 March 2021 we will host an Online Ask the Inspector Q&A. This will take place between 10.30am-12pm and is hosted on Facebook, Twitter, SYP Alerts.
