Welcome to the Cleethorpes Neighbourhood Policing Area
Welcome to the Cleethorpes Policing Team, which covers the seven wards of Croft Baker, East Marsh, Haverstoe, Heneage, Humberston and New Waltham and Sidney Sussex.
Update From Inspector Dave Stephenson
We start 2021 with renewed optimism looking forward to the year ahead and opportunities it may present. We remain very realistic of the impact that the current Covid-19 public health emergency is placing on individuals, families and our communities as a whole across North East Lincolnshire. With the ever changing position, we remain resolute in our intent, effort and energy, continuing to plan and work with community groups and our partners across the Public Sector, to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 on our local communities and keep you safe.
In NE Lincolnshire the vast majority of our community have been doing what’s right for a long time. We continue to use the 4E’s approach to Policing Covid-19; engage, explain, encourage and finally enforce the regulations where applicable. You will see on our social media channels and in the local media that in recent weeks on occasion we have seen an increase in house parties and larger gatherings. Where these have been flagrant breaches of the regulations we have taken proportionate and necessary action, issuing appropriate fines. As vaccination roll out continues across Health Care settings in Grimsby and Cleethorpes you will see our officers in attendance, providing reassurance around these key vaccination sites.
Regardless of Covid 19, our Policing focus remains to protect the most vulnerable, keep people safe and to respond to serious crime. Our neighbourhood policing activity will continue to be focused on maintaining our core operational duties and delivering our Neighbourhood Policing Strategy. The provision of highly visible and locally connected neighbourhood policing teams remain the foundation of our force operating model.
The Neighbourhood Policing Strategy and our focus concentrates on 4 Pillars:
- Building Resilient Communities
- Protecting Vulnerable People – safeguarding
- Managing Offenders and diverting people away from crime and Anti-social behaviour
- Maintaining Public Trust and Confidence.
Through 2021 we continue to utilise locally developed evidence based practice in order to reduce harm, reduce repeat calls for service and thereby increase community resilience. As we have experienced through our embedded Problem Orientated Policing approach; listening to communities (through Humbertalk surveys) to find out what matters to you, sharing information between partners and working collaboratively is integral in not only defining local issues and priorities but delivering successful, tangible sustainable results.
Regardless of Covid- 19 we are still here and not going anywhere. Our Community Teams remain out and about, taking necessary precautions wearing appropriate PPE delivering our Neighbourhood Policing Service. Covid-19 has seen some changes to our engagement and we have adapted and utilised technology using online meetings for community engagement and meetings; the team will continue to utilise our social media channels (Twitter: @humberbeatNEL and Facebook: @humberbeatNEL) and our team pages on the force website to keep you informed of what we are doing.
At the commencement of this pandemic I reported I was impressed by my team’s response and attitude over those initial few days. It was, and months down the line, remains to this day fantastic. This is not without challenge and sacrifice. We’ve seen and continue to see some fantastic team ethos, not just internally but working with our partners from other agencies and members of the community. The Grimsby East Team continue the pledge and commitment to you, our communities and each other.
To the very best of our ability we will continue to:
- Protect the vulnerable and keep people safe.
- We will be out in your ward areas, visible, listening and working with you to deliver the services you need at this challenging time.
- We will continue to tackle crime and ASB
- Most of all we will be here when you need us
