New police teams rolled out across Rotherham

New local policing teams are being rolled out in Rotherham this week.

The town will now be policed by three LPTs, made up response officers, safer neighbourhood police officers and PCSOs, each equipped with mobile technology to keep them on the streets for longer.

They will be assisted by a support unit, which focuses on the proactive investigation of crime, tackling anti-social behaviour and schools-related matters.
