Local policing priorities for Barnsley Central

Looking for something else?

Consultation with the community has identified the following priorities in this neighbourhood.


Anti - social behaviour due to increased use of drugs, namely Spice which is a class B drug.
Large amounts of complaints in relation to the use of the drugs in and around the town centre. Complaints about users passing out in town and ambulances are frequently being called. Members of the public are witnessing individuals openly dealing in town. People are fearful of coming into town as they see it as a very intimidating place to be.
