POLICE have been horsing around a Rotherham estate in a bid to clamp down on anti-social behaviour.
South Yorkshire Police’s four-hoofed officers Stocksbridge, Cubley and Bawtry teamed up with their two-legged counterparts as part of a community engagement event in Eastwood.
The event saw Rotherham Central neighbourhood officers working with staff from Rotherham Borough Council’s Anti-Social Behaviour team to get feedback and evidence from the public.
The police horses, along with handlers PC Tracey Brown, PC Julie Bradshaw and PC Michelle Goodson, patrolled the streets as officers chatted to residents.
The work forms part of the Eastwood Deal — a multi-agency project that aims to engage with communities, reduce crime and provide a visible presence in the area.
