Pushing for a visible police force in our towns

Dinnington Police Station closed in 2016, leaving residents in Dinnington and surrounding villages, including North and South Anston, without any police presence. Alexander Stafford has highlighted the crimes which have blighted the area since the police presence was withdrawn from Dinnington, which include anti-social behaviour, drug use and theft.

Crime has rocketed since the police station closed down and Alexander, the first Conservative MP to represent Rother Valley, believes the lack of effective policing has gone on for too long and allowed for crime to balloon and torment residents.

Since his election, Alexander has been a fervent and persistent voice for Rother Valley on the topic of law and order, setting up a Rural Crime Taskforce to help combat the rise in offences which specifically affect the more rural areas of Rother Valley.

Alexander is now keen to focus on re-establishing a visible police presence in Dinnington, Maltby and towns across the constituency. Alexander has written to and met the Police and Crime Commissioner Dr Alan Billings to press the need for a permanent and visible policing presence in Dinnington and he has even raised the issue with the Prime Minister, who voiced his support for a police station in Dinnington.

More than 500 people responded to a survey published by Alexander, on crime in Rother Valley and the overwhelming response was that people were worried and concerned about crime. More than 200 people responded directly with concerns specific to Dinnington showing the lack of a police station is starting to take hold and allow crime to breed.

Since the police station closed crime has soared and Alexander is very keen to work with the local community and policing teams to reduce and prevent crime as well as reopen a police station in Dinnington, Maltby and towns across the area.


My Plan for Dinnington

Dinnington is a small town located roughly in the centre of the Rother Valley constituency and has a population of just over 9,000 people. It is believed to have been founded in Neolithic times with a name meaning "Town of Dunn's People".

My Plan for North & South Anston

North Anston & South Anston are two villages in the southeast of the Rother Valley constituency, with a combined population of roughly 9,000 people. The area’s history dates back over a thousand years, and its name means “single/solitary stone” in Old English.

My Plan for Wales

Wales is a small village in the southwest of the Rother Valley constituency with a population of over 1,000.

My Plan for Kiveton Park

Kiveton Park is a village in the southwest of the Rother Valley constituency with a population of just over 7,000 people. It was founded by the Anglo-Saxons before the Norman conquest, and its name comes from an Old English word for “the settlement in the hollow”.

My Plan for Harthill & Woodall

Harthill is a small village and Woodall a hamlet in the south of the Rother Valley constituency, with a combined population of roughly 2,000 people.
