Haverstoe

Welcome to the Haverstoe neighbourhood policing team

The team deals with a varying demand seasonally and as such our team has to be extremely fluid. The area incorporates areas such as the Discovery Centre, Cleethorpes Leisure Centre, Meridian Point, Cinema, the Smallest Pub in the World and Haverstoe Park.

What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

Anti-Social Behaviour: The Haverstoe policing team face several challenges when it comes to Anti-Social Behaviour and there has been ELEVEN calls for service for November 2019. These calls are based around the Meridian Point area and as such we are prioritising this area. We have set up a shop WhatsApp group which is monitored by the Beat Manager and PCSO staff.

Update:

Your local Policing team in conjunction with the ASB team from North East Lincs Council have attended a number of home address's of youths and in front of parents have issued banning letters as well as ASB Final warning letters, in an attempt to curb their behaviour and reduce calls for service.

We have seen an decrease for calls for service this month , however with the run up to Christmas holidays we are expecting an increase, we will continue to address this Ward Priority. Your local Policing Team have been working in partnership with YPSS (Young People Support Services) and increased patrols in and around the area, with a view of tackling and reducing all forms of ASB. 

Your local Policing Team will be engaged with Operation YULETIDE patrols, which is aimed at late night shopping and reducing ASB around these hotspots.

If you have any information regarding any anti-social behaviour in your area then please contact on 101 or send us an email on the GET IN TOUCH link below.

If you wish to remain anonymous you can provide the information via Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.

Retail Crime:

We have quite a few of businesses within Haverstoe Ward and we are actively working with all the businesses in the area. Especially those on Meridian Point and Hardy’s Road in Cleethorpes. 

We are providing targeted High visibility patrols, providing crime prevention advice, and targeting offenders.

Update:

We have a local WhatsApp group where all businesses can communicate directly with each other as well as with their local policing team. This has seen some really positive results which includes actively targeting offenders and recovering stolen items. All participants are very proactive on the group and have without any doubt prevented thefts from taking place in their stores. 

 

Dwelling Burglaries: 

The Haverstoe, Humberston and New Waltham Policing team face several challenges when it comes to dwelling burglaries and there has been TWO calls for service this month, which is lower than last month but however two is still too high. Homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures. Good window locks and strong deadlocks can make a big difference.
Taking just a few steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary. 

*Update. An adult male was charged with burglary offences that occurred in New Waltham, we would still encourage all our residents to report anything suspicious and to remain vigilant.  

Here are a few tips:

  • Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you're just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key)
  • Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
  • Install a visual burglar alarm (as part of a suite of prevention measures - a burglar alarm on its own will not prevent entry to your home)
  • Install good outside lighting.
  • Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property.
  • Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied.
  • Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition.
  • Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immovable object inside a locked shed or garage.
  • Keep ladders and tools stored away; don't leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home.
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.
  • Ensure rear fencing is in good repair
  • Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges
  • Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with immobilise.
  • Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
  • Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows
  • Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe or bank vault

 
Doors and Windows

In most burglaries, the criminals broke into the house or flat through the door, either by forcing the lock or kicking it in. So make sure your doors are strong and secure. Consider fitting a bar for extra strength; a locksmith can advise you on how best to do it.
Glass panels on doors are particularly vulnerable. If you have one on your door you could replace it with laminated glass, which is stronger. You can also buy a film in a DIY store that you can stick over the glass to make it harder to break.
 
Home security and DIY shops sell inexpensive, key-operated locks to fit most kinds of windows. Fit window locks with keys to all downstairs windows and those upstairs that are easy to reach.

Distraction Burglary

If you're not sure who is at your door, don't open it.

Check the identity of the caller by calling the company they are claiming to be from i.e. gas, electricity, water and police. Use the telephone numbers listed in your local directory or provided independently by your service provider - Do not use any telephone numbers provided by the caller - they may be bogus. The 'Waterboard' no longer exists, it is an obsolete phrase used only by bogus callers.

Going away on holiday

Make your home look like someone is living in it:

  • Use automatic timer-switches to turn your lights and radios on when it goes dark
  • Cancel any newspaper or milk deliveries
  • Use the Royal Mail's 'keepsafe' service - they keep your mail for up to 2 months while you're away. Mail sitting on your doorstep is a sign that you are away
  • Trusted neighbours may be able to help you by collecting your post, opening and closing curtains and they could park their car on your driveway
  • Avoid discussing holiday plans on public social networking sites - burglars can use any information you post on there to their advantage

 
A GOOD website to look at is Police.uk and especially the ‘Crime Map’ as this will give you information about individual crimes near your postcode. 

Finally - if you see or hear anything suspiciously please report it on 101/999 or send us an email on the GET IN TOUCH link below.

If you wish to remain anonymous you can provide the information via Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
