ANTI-SOCIAL behaviour and substance misuse were the policing priorities set by officers and residents in Kirk Hallam, Hallam Fields and Stanton-by-Dale.
The issues were raised at a neighbourhood panel meeting last week.
It was decided that police in the area will focus on anti-social behaviour and nuisance at the Queen Elizabeth Way shopping area and substance misuse in the Corporation Road area
Local bobbies will increase patrols and liaise with residents to crack down on the problems.
Progress will be reviewed at the next panel meeting.
