What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

BEAUCHAMP/EARLS/TALBOT WALK AND HAIG AVENUE- Anti Social Behaviour & Rough sleepers

Police have been made aware of an increased amount of calls relating to Anti-Social behaviour on BEAUCHAMP, EARLS, TALBOT WALK and HAIG AVENUE in Scunthorpe.

Police have been attending the area regularly to disrupt this activity and are working alongside our partnership agencies Safer Neighbourhoods, Environmental Health, Local Councilors and The Forge. 

The team remain focused on maintaining the momentum of activity over recent weeks into the months ahead. We’re really proud to be part of the Frodingham community and understand the impact this sort of behaviour has been having on the community and also local businesses. We are working really hard with our partners to use a broad range of options to target those responsible and make Frodingham a Safer and Stronger Community for all. We are also working closely with the council and The Forge to offer support and engagement to those that need it most. 

Updates:

22nd February 2020: 10 young people congregating and causing issues in this area were stopped by officers and referred to the Anti-social behaviour panel which along with the Police involves partner agencies who work with the young people and their families in order to prevent further incidents. 

28th Febraury 2020: Police are currently working with local Landlords in order to ensure that the anti-social behaviour young people are causing in the area stops or Landlords will begin tenancy enforcement action against the parents of the young people. 

 

Frodingham - Drug Supply

We understand there are concerns in respect of drug dealing across the Frodingham community and we are absolutely committed to taking robust action. There have been a number of proactive warrants executed by our Operation Galaxy Team with the assistance of your Neighbourhood Team. Over recent months drugs warrants were executed at properties on COTTAGE BECK ROAD, CEMETERY ROAD and HAIG AVENUE.

The team are currently working with private landlords and social landlords to evict the tenants of these properties. If this fails we will continue to use antisocial behaviour legislation that is available to us in order to place closure orders on properties that are involved with drug dealing.

Recently, your team secured a closure order at a property on CEMETERY ROAD which is now closed down for three months. You said this was causing an issue - we have taken action to protect you from crime and antisocial behaviour.

We have recently become aware of an increase in the use of Nitrous Oxide gas and that our local communities report finding discarded micro cannisters on the streets. We have issued a HEALTH WARNING in respect of the recreational use of Nitrous Oxide which can have serious health risks including :

  • Loss of Blood Pressure
  • Heart Attack
  • Fainting
  • Bone Marrow Suppression
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Poisoning of the Central Nervous System

The above risks can increase if combined with alcohol or other drugs. Our advice is clear - do not inhale this substance and seek medical advice if consumed. 

It is an offence to supply, or offer to supply a psychoactive substance under the Psychoactive Substance Act 2016 - which could lead to a sentence of up to 7 years and / or a fine if convicted. 

This type of action will continue. We are working hard to understand the nature of this problem and urge members of the public to report their concerns to their local team, to police through the 101 number or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).

Off Road Motorcycles - Across the ward. 

Over recent months we have visited thousands of households across North Lincolnshire and we understand that the antisocial use of off road motorcycles is causing concern in your community. The policing team have been working really hard to respond to local concerns in respect of this issue and while good progress was made around the ward area we recognise that there is still more to do.

Over recent weeks and months we will continue to prioritise our activity around this issue, included a number of tactics as part of Operation Yellowfin.

We continue to undertake Op Yellowfin 'days of action' which is seeing more and more nuisance motorbikes being stopped and seized. We are absolutely committed to continuing in this approach while this remains a priority issue. You can see some of our recent seizures by scrolling through the Twitter and Facebook feeds below. 

We want to be clear- we will not be tolerating the criminal use of motorcycles in this way and we will use all powers at our disposal to recover bikes being used in this way and to hold those responsible to account. 

4th March 2020 update: 

There have been a number of motorcycles stolen from the ward area recently, please can you ensure that if you own a motorcycle that you leave it locked and secure in order to try and reduce the chances of your motorcycle being stolen.

We are appealing for information from our local communities as to the details of who is responsible for stealing or riding these bikes. We would also like information as to where they are being stored or housed and would encourage people with information to make contact on either 101 or alternatively, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

These are difficult times, it is in these times that fraudsters look to exploit vulnerability and as more and more people self-isolate then vulnerability will increase. Attached are number of useful links that people can follow for advice as per below:
