What's Happening In Your Area?


Retail crime and Antisocial Behaviour on Gallagher and North Lincs. Retail Parks

We are aware of some instances of retail crime and anti-social behaviour on the Gallagher Retail Park and North Lincolnshire Shopping Park and our teams are active in this area.

We routinely patrol these areas and engage with stores to prevent future occurences of theft and antisocial behaviour. 

Our team also make sure we monitor calls for service in this area and ensure we are able to develop our problem solving activities accordingly. 

UPDATE: 20/11/2020

Shop theft in our area is on the rise for a number of shops on the retail parks - we continue to patrol the area on both North Lincs and Gallagher retail park.

At this current time it is mandatory to wear a face covering in any store, unless you are exempt from this due to medical reasons. If you do not have a covering, please go to customer services and they will provide you with one. Hand Sanitizing stations are now avalible in most stores, please make use of these for you own safety and others.

Football Matchday parking on Lodge Moor and surrounding estates.

There have been some instances reported of problems with parking in and around the Scunthorpe United Football Ground site and surrounding estates on match days which we are actively monitoring. 

Parking in pavements, across driveways, on junctions and also on double yellow lines is dangerous and can cause unnecessary obstructions to others using the roads and pavements. 

We work closely with colleagues from North Lincolnshire Council and people parking in such a way risk facing receiving parking tickets, fines and in some cases, having their vehicle recovered. 

There is plenty of parking available on a Match Day at Glanford Park. 

UPDATE: 20/11/2020

Patrols are contuning in the area of the football ground and surrounding businesses, all drive throughs and outlets are still open. at the moment there is no football but the retail park is becoming very busy due to the time of year. Please take this into consideration, take your time while travelling and stay safe.

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: 20/11/2020

Organised patch walks are conducted around your local area by PCSO DYE, if there is anything you wish to speak about please see surgery dates below.

Please keep valuables out of sight within your home addresses and in the run up to Christmas keeping presents out of view of your windows/doors.

Vehicle theft is on the rise, please make sure they are locked and secure and valuables are out of sight and if keyless make reasonable steps to secure the vehicle by other means and to protect the keys from being scanned.

Keep doors and windows locked at your property at all times, if you wish to report anything please call 101.

Rural Crime

We are committed to taking action against those causing harm to our rural communities.

We continue to drive our activities under Operation Galileo and work closely with our farmers and residents across our communities, along with partners.

We hold regular days of action both during the day and during the hours of darkness to target those using rural humberside communities for this type of offending, for example, seizing vehicles, dogs and applying for court orders to restrict these people from the area. 

Update: 20/11/2020

Rural crime is on the rise, please be vigilant and report any unusual behaviour to 101.

To all residents please be mindful that the Hare Coursing/Poaching season is in full swing now and we are getting unwanted guest 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 to 101.

A dedicated operation targeted at criminals who use motorbikes to commit criminal activity called Operation Yellow Fin, again please if you have any information which will identify addresses or know who the riders are call in to report.
