South Yorkshire Police have carried out a day of action in the Stainforth area today.
Police officers and PCSOs from the Doncaster East Neighbourhood Team today (Tuesday 11 June) teamed up with external partner agencies and other police departments for a day of action in Stainforth and Barnby Dun.
Police reported three arrests were made throughout the day; two for assault and one for failing to attend court. Other activity included a speed operation near Long Toft primary school on Church Road in Stainforth. Officers also gave a talk on road safety to Key Stage Two pupils at the school.
As a result of the speed operation, officers said that six drivers will be receiving tickets “through the post”. The highest speed recorded was said to be 47mph. Officers said this was “completely unacceptable” in a 30mph zone outside a school.
Licensing checks were also carried out at premises selling food, tobacco and alcohol. Foot patrols were conducted by officers in Barnby Dun.
Doncaster East Neighbourhood Sergeant Daniel Wilson said: “This is the first of many days like this we have planned, we plan to run one each month across the East Neighbourhood district.
Sergeant Wilson continued: “We will provide some positive action with our partners to tackle issues that affect the communities at a local level. Today has been focused on community engagement and road related problems.
“I feel today has been a successful day for all agencies involved. The people of Stainforth will have seen an increased police presence in the area today. I am very pleased with how the day has gone and look forward to the next one.”
