South Yorkshire Police have arrested 33 people and seized 12 dogs as part of their Operation Duxford crackdown this week.

More than 370 officers made high visibility uniformed appearances around Sheffield on Wednesday to reassure the public that police were listening to their concerns.

Teams made arrests for a range of crimes including domestic abuse, possessing indecent images of children, and burglary.

The District Commander for Sheffield, Chief Superintendent Shelley Hemsley, said: “Operation Duxford is about shining a spotlight on the sort of policing activity we carry out every day.”

Early morning raids on Wednesday also led to officers seizing 500 cannabis plants as well as Class A and B drugs to the value of £8,000. Around £14,000 in cash was also recovered.

Officers teamed up with members of the RSPCA to raid an allotment in Darnall under the Dangerous Dogs Act.

Concerns about the conditions at the allotment led to 12 dogs being recovered. They are now being cared for by the RSPCA.

Police have urged anyone with concerns to report them by calling 101 or their local neighbourhood policing teams.
