Welcome message from the Neighbourhood Inspector Sebastian Dent
Hi, I am Inspector Sebastian Dent. I lead the Neighbourhood Policing Team covering the Sprotbrough, Norton/Askern, Adwick/Carcroft, Bentley and Roman Ridge Ward areas. The team is Based at Davies house Police station on Barnsley Road.
I have over 17 years experience as a police officer and have worked in various roles including Neighbourhoods, Organised crime disruption, Safer Neighbourhoods partnership and as a Response officer and Sergeant. The majority of my service has been spent in Doncaster and a significant period has been in the North area of the City.
I am delighted to have the opportunity to help create and embed the new North Neighbourhood Policing team. It is clear that the team are driven by a real desire to make a difference in the communities they serve, creating a safer and more enjoyable environment for those who live and work here.
The creation of the new North NPT aligns us with the council's localities model, enabling better joint working and an enhanced service for all residents.
Neighbourhood Policing has great benefits. It enables us to work closely with the public, community groups, partner agencies and businesses to be able to reduce crime and solve re-occurring and community issues. Please be sure to contact your local teams and follow us on social media, to stay informed with what we are doing and engagement events running in your community to come and speak to us. This will enable us to be part of the community and adapt problem solving approaches to local issues.
