What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

Poaching / Hare Coursing:

Although hare coursing season has now concluded we are getting reports of lamping going on in the area, if you see any please report on 101. Also there has been an increase of sheep thefts in and around North Lincolnshire, so please be mindful of these new reports just in case you have any sheep go missing. 

I would also like to make residents aware of the Countryside code, Respect other people,
Consider the local community and other people enjoying the outdoors,  leave gates and property as you find them and follow the paths unless wider access is available, Protect the environment, Leave no trace of your visit and take home your litter home, Keep dogs under effective control
Enjoy the outdoors, plan ahead and be prepared, follow advice and local signs.

You can find out more about Rural & Wildlife Crime here. 

UPDATE 19/11/2020

 To all residents please be mindful that the Hare Coursing season is in full swing now and we are getting unwanted guests on our area. We have already had calls for service with some positive results.  We have already implemented OP GALILEO for the season with patrols being out both during the day and night. So can I ask all residents to please be vigilant and if you see any suspicious activity or lamping or hare coursing occurring or anything suspicious or something that might seem out of place then please report it.

Vulnerability - keeping people safe

Over recent years Humberside Police has made considerable effort to focus on Vulnerability. Everyone in the organisation has a responsibility to ensure the most vulnerable people in our communities are protected. Very often as a police service we are the first point of contact for many people. Having this contact enables us to identify vulnerabilities at an early stage. This will ensure that people who need support and protection receive the correct level of service from both the police and our partners such as social care, mental health services and services in the third sector.

A person is vulnerable if as a result of their situation or circumstances, they are unable to take care or protect themselves, or others, from harm or exploitation. Protecting vulnerable children and adults.

What do we do ?

  • by providing public reassurance through effective deployment of our resources
  • by working with our partners (ONGO, other social housing providers, NLC Safer Neighbourhoods, Victim Support, REMEDI)
  • gather intelligence in relation to any incident involving a vulnerable person to minimise the risk to them
  • maximise opportunities to secure evidence when offences are committed against vulnerable people to ensure offenders are brought to justice and reduce the risk of further victimisation

How do we do this ?

  • complete vulnerable adult assessments and share information with our partners
  • complete vulnerable child assessments for those under 17 and share information with our partners
  • complete Antisocial Behaviour risk assessments to decide on what support is required and work with partners to deliver this
  • ensure that high risk victims are referred promptly which triggers discussion at the Monthly ASB Panel meetings where all partners agree actions to support the victim and reduce their risk.

UPDATE 19/11/2020

We have still seeing an increase in burglaries, involving residential, commercial and Shed in the area along with reports of some rouge traders  as well as SCAMS taking place that are  target residents therefore, the Local Neighbourhood Team are asking residents to be extra vigilant regarding the security of their homes and vehicles, especially as we are also seeing vehicles being targeted with the night’s drawing in. If a stranger attendees your property then please make sure you have you door chain on before opening your door to speak with them, or speak to them from a window until you are happy that they are who they are, if they have any identification then ask to see it.

Please make sure car keys are not on show through a window, where possible keep car keys in your possession. Please report any suspicious vehicles/persons in our community.

High Visibility patrols are still continuing and will be continuing in all areas all over the Isle, if you see us out and about and would like a chat to discuss any local issues, please stop us for a chat while adhering to government guidelines of social distancing.  

 Rogue Traders are starting to target residents in all areas, the Local Neighbourhood Team are asking residents to be extra vigilant regarding the security of their homes and vehicles. If a stranger attends your property please make sure you have all door shut and secure, use your door chain before opening your door to speak to them, or speak to them through a window, until you are happy they are who they say they are and you have seen ID do not open the door, if you believe them to be someone who they are not report this person as a Rogue Trader on 101 also include reporting to Trading Standards at North Lincolnshire Council

Seasonal Crime

Burglaries are still continuing in the area. Whilst we do not want to concern residents, we would like to remind everyone of some basic home security measures which can significantly reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of burglary.

The most likely entry point for a burglar is via the rear so do not neglect security there. Fit an alarm or a dummy alarm box. Many people point out that when an alarm sounds nobody takes any notice these days. The burglar will though. Install a security light which works on a movement sensor to light up areas which a burglar may use for cover. Use timer switches to turn lights on when you are not in. Ensure any gates at the rear are locked, not just with a bolt near the top which can be opened by reaching over.

Thieves do not want to be seen and surveillance is often provided by Neighbours who live opposite or who overlook your property. Do not allow bushes and hedges to grow too high.

Consider the security on your shed. Is it proportionate to the value of items you keep inside such as cycles and garden equipment? e.g. an expensive cycle stored in a wooden shed with only a £2.50 padlock for security. It is also worth noting that a burglar will sometimes use an item which is easily taken from a poorly secured shed to facilitate their entry into a house. Fit trellis along the top of fencing at the rear as this will break if a burglar tries to climb over your fence. Spiky / prickly bushes and climbers are also a deterrent.

Report all suspicious circumstances. Door-to-door salesman appertaining to be selling energy or double-glazing are often checking out and planning future burglaries or even trying their luck there and then if they get no reply to knocking. In rural communities, local residents know when someone or something looks out of place far more than in urban areas.

Join your local Neighbourhood Watch (NW) group or start one up yourself. The role of co-ordinator does not have to be a burdensome role and your group can be as small or large as you wish. In effect the key role of a NHW co-ordinator is to act as a conduit for police information which in today’s world is literally the touch of a button. The vital part is that police have that single point of contact in as many areas as possible. NHW is proven to reduce and prevent crime and it is an initiative well suited to rural communities where traditional community spirit still exists. We would also ask for your assistance in keeping an eye on any properties where you know the occupants are away or out for whatever length of time. Our intelligence suggests that the offenders are ‘doing their homework’ in identifying properties from which to steal. If you see any suspicious activity then please call 999 if you believe a crime is about to be committed or 101 if you noted suspicious activity which has now passed. If you are able to get descriptions of persons or vehicle details without putting yourself in any danger, then that would be valuable information.

 We are still continuing to patrol the Isle of Axholme area, as we are still getting calls in relation to off road motorbikes causing a nuisance for the local communities. The local neighbourhood team are asking residents to please call in on 101 and report any nuisance off road motorcycles. Operation YELLOW FIN is a police operation to tackle the crime associated with the use of motorbikes. 

Winter Driving – Now it is winter it is a good time to complete a check of your car. Check your battery; most have a life span of 5 years, top up anti-freeze and windscreen washer, make sure all bulbs are working and lenses are clear, check for chips in windscreens; a chip can be repaired but if left can crack a whole windscreen which can be costly to replace, check wipers are fit for purpose, make sure tyres are of the correct tread depth and pressure is correct. Please whatever you are doing as you defrost vehicle,  NEVER EVER LEAVE YOUR CAR RUNNING WITH THE KEYS IN THE IGNITION WHILST DEFROSTING IT, If it is stolen it may invalidate your insurance.

EPWORTH POLICE STATION has now re-opened and is open every Tuesday & Thursday between 9.00 x 14.30 for anyone wanting to report or discuss anything.
