We encourage everyone to follow the Government guidance and #StayHomeSaveLives. For this reason we will not be holding any more engagement events with our communities for the foreseeable future. Whilst we love seeing you, these events are non-essential in the current circumstances.   

You will still see us out and about as we continue to do our job and keep our communities safe. As always there are a number of ways you can get in touch with us if you need us.

Stay informed through our social media channels, find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  Don't forget to also sign up to My Community Alert and receive community alerts directly to your devices.

For incidents that don’t require an immediate response call our non-emergency 101 line. You can also report non-emergency crimes online via our reporting portal. In an emergency always dial 999.

What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

Western Avenue, Brigg

Western Avenue in Brigg has been suffering reports of Anti-Social Behaviour in relation to children/teenager building a den/shelter in a nearby hedgerow. In building the den/shelter the children/teenagers have cut down or broken a number of branches, fires have been lit and rubbish is collecting in the area making the area unsightly.

Objective

Work with, and support the relevant partners to ensure a safe environment of all those attending the location.
To provide public reassurance as well as reduce the opportunity for crime and disorder through the effective deployment of police resources.
Work with partners, stakeholders and local communities to minimise disruption to the local communities.
Maximise opportunities to secure information and intelligence in relation to any incident that is a policing matter.
Maximise opportunities to secure evidence in relation to any potential offences whilst ensuring that the timing and scale of any police action or intervention mitigates the risk of problems escalating.

Police Powers

Section 34 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014: Authority to use section 35 dispersal powers. Officers will need to request that 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).
Drugs - Power to Stop and Search Persons and Vehicles: Section 23(2) of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971: A Police Officer who has reasonable grounds for suspecting that any person is in possession of a control drug may search that person, any vehicle in which the officer suspects that the drug may be found.

If any other criminal offence takes place the police will proportionately investigate the incident along with the victim's wishes.

Update 12/10/2020

Local officers have attended and cleared the area of all the rubbish and items that were used to construct the shelter and deposited the items at the local recycling centre. The branches that had been broken have been placed into the clearing making the rebuilding of the encampment less likely. The area is now much cleaner and no longer an eyesore for those residents who live in the area. Local residents have been sent an alert via the My Community Alert system with a request for parents to be mindful of what their children are up to.

Update 26/10/2020

The local team has not had any other issues reported to them regarding this at this time.

 

Horkstow Bridge

During the warm weather there were a number of issues at the above location but now that we are getting colder temperatures another issue is vehicles being at this location. On the Horkstow side and Winterton side of the bridge are road signs which confirm that no vehicles can be driven past that location unless they have permission to do so. The local team will be within and will take positive action.
