What's Happening In Your Area?


St Peters Avenue/Holme Hall Avenue/Bramley Crescent

Police have been made aware of large gatherings of youths causing anti-social behaviour in the area. Neighbourhood Officers are patrolling the area and speaking to the youths. We will make relevant referrals to the ASB Panel, which is a multi agency panel, who can offer intervention and support to prevent repeat offenders.  Any offences identified are investigated and referrals made to the Youth Offending Service when applicable. Several referrals have already been made and we will continue to patrol the area. 

Police can deal with antisocial behaviour by using powers to disperse groups and restrict their return to the affected area. Officers will need to request a Police Inspector puts this authority in place in order for a Police Officer or Police Community Support Officer in uniform to exclude a person from an area for a period up to 48 hours (Some restrictions do apply).


Commencing at the end of September, Neighbourhood Officers have increased patrols in the  area. This has been supported by Special Constables and colleagues from patrol teams.  Numerous home visits to parents, when youths have been identified, have been made. This included a male youth who was found in possession of nitrous oxide. All visits have triggered an ASB Panel referrals. There has also been a site visit  by Safer Neighbourhoods looking at issues around litter, improving the layout, posters up in shops about nitrous oxide, work with Fred Gough on nitrous oxide, possible CCTV, and general clean up. We have also requested support from the  local community groups, North Lincolnshire Council and Neighbourhood Watch groups with a request to conker pick, to reduce the availability of these to be thrown at properties and vehicles. Dispersal powers will also be considered to reduce gatherings of those intent on causing antisocial behaviour. 

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


Recent examples of the above are:

working with Adult Services to provide support to an elderly male where there are concerns around financial abuse
