Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Alison Carr

Inspector Alison Carr looks after the north east side of Doncaster, which includes the Thorne, Moorends, Stainforth and Barnby Dun, Edenthorpe and Kirk Sandall, Hatfield, Dunscroft and Dunsville, Norton and Askern and Armthorpe ward areas.

The team consists of two sergeants, five police officers (PCS) and eight Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) who each have geographical responsibility for a town and some villages within the ward areas mentioned above.

If you see any of the team out on patrol please do stop for a chat and let them know what’s happening where you live, as this information is vital to help us understand what you need from us. It helps shape our priorities and gives us a better picture of life in the areas we police, allowing us to solve problems more effectively.

Insp Carr attends ward member meetings with council representatives which are usually held monthly, and the team will attend parish council meetings on a regular too. This helps them identify emerging community issues or concerns which we can look to address. It also gives the opportunity to update local communities about the actions we are taking to address issues that have been raised.

Finally, the team regularly hold online meetings via Facebook to give residents the chance to talk about issues affecting them in the local area. This page is regularly updated with the times and dates of planned meetings so please do get involved when you can. 

Your local police station is:

The priorities for the Doncaster East Neighbourhood Policing Team are:

  • To improve community safety by building stronger ties within those who live and work in the area
  • Reducing crime, disorder, and harm
  • Provide high visibility reassurance to our communities via regular patrols from PCSOs
  • To reduce and prevent rural crime through effective engagement with the local community and adopting a problem-solving approach
