Heeley Week of Action – The Results

Posted on June 22, 2010 by


Last week saw the second annual Week of Action in Heeley.

This year we tried to improve on the success of 2009 by giving the community more say in the work undertaken by ourselves and partners. The week commencing 24th May saw PCSO’s, Sheffield Homes wardens and fire service staff out and about in Heeley speaking to residents to identify the issues of concern locally. So we asked and you told us what you wanted doing. The week of Action was supported by all local partner agencies and used Heeley City farm as a base.

A large amount of environmental work was undertaken by streetforce, Sheffield Homes, Parks Department and this was supported by additional enforcement activity by the SNA staff along with partners from DVLA, Sheffield Magistrates Courts service and Environmental protection agency. The fire service were also out and about fitting smoke alarms. The community assembly team supported us by providing a community skip at the farm and funding a “Bring out your rubbish day” . Plans are progressing for Anns Road youth club to receive a facelift and be painted by offenders on community payback.

Here are some of the results from the additional Police Activity in the area.

We had mounted officers on patrol for three evenings last week. They were well received by local residents. In addition officers from the mobile ANPR(Automatic number plate reader) team from our traffic department undertook an Operation in Heeley during the week. This resulted in three uninsured vehicles being taken off the street, 9 motorists being prosecuted for a variety of offences and three drugs seraches. 

My team undertook a speed enforcement Operation on two days, one on Myrtle Road and the other East Bank Road. This was in direct response to requests from local residents and utilised the equipment provided by the Community Assembly team. A total of 8 motorists were reported for speeding offences.

A drugs warrant was executed at an address on Derbyshire Lane which resulted in the seizure of a small amount of cannabis.

We also had additional high visibility patrols in the area every day until 10pm in response to complaints of anti-social behaviour and to enforce the current Section 30 Dispersal Orders.
