Doncaster Council's Neighbourhood Response Team (NRT) continues to go from strength to strength with the addition of further new powers.

The Team, who work alongside colleagues in South Yorkshire Police, bring together Council staff and Police Community Support Officers, to add a new dimension to ensuring safety in Doncaster, tackling incidents and hotspot areas, as well as being a visible presence within the community.

The NRT work alongside Police colleagues to provide a fully integrated early response to incidents which may include anti-social behaviour (ASB) and street drinking. Whilst not all reported ASB incidents result in a prosecution, the new powers will enable the team to take names and addresses, which may then lead to a prosecution by South Yorkshire Police.

The additional powers will provide the NRT with the ability to deliver an effective solution to a wider variety of ASB Incidents. For example, anyone involved in ASB will now have to provide NRT Officers with their details on request, and failure to do this could result in potential prosecution by South Yorkshire Police under the new powers. Anyone witnessed causing Harassment, Alarm or Distress by using inappropriate language in the presence of others can now also be dealt with by the Council Team and subsequently prosecuted by South Yorkshire Police.

The NRT provide a swift response to reports of ASB and, by having additional powers, it enables the team to deal with most incidents on arrival, securing a positive outcome and reducing the impact of the problem in our communities.

Chief Inspector Gwyn Thomas of South Yorkshire Police said: ‘Officers continue to work closely with partners to tackle issues, such as antisocial behaviour, that cause concern among the community and impact on the lives of residents. These additional powers are a valuable addition to the Neighbourhood Response Team and will help enhance the positive work already being done in Doncaster.’

‘Our Neighbourhood Response Team is out on the ground carrying out vital work in the community’, said Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones. ’We are committed to keeping Doncaster a safe place for everyone to live, work and enjoy. The new powers maximise the information we gather on the ground and will help deter offenders from committing Anti-Social Behaviour in our communities.’

The new powers came into force on 21 October 2013. More information about the Neighbourhood Response Team can be found at:
