What's Happening In Your Area?


COVID19 - Our priorities remain the same still - we are there and out and about for you, even in these testing times. Due to the current situation, our  main priority is the issues and problems that may arise from this. What we would like is for people to contact us or the council where there are concerns for vulnerabilities. Now is the time to be keeping an eye out for your neighbours, family and friends and as such, if there is something that your local policing team can do, then do not hesitate to contact us via the usual route - 101 - non-emergency and 999 for emergency purposes.

I want to assure you that we will be there for you as best we can under the circumstances whilst still responding to our normal day to day business. Please be safe out there and remember the advice and guidance you have been provided with from the Government.

Your community officers identify and support the vulnerable: 

We have identified a number of youths and families that cause us concern. Whilst some may be involved in criminality we recognise many themselves are in fact vulnerable. We continue to work closely with partner agencies and local schools. Working together we have addressed a number of concerns and sought appropriate support and intervention for these families.

Targeting those that create repeated calls for service: 

Your community officers will identify those persons who by their behaviour generate repeat calls for service: The team in Immingham understand the impact a small number of people can have on the community. 

We have seen a reduction of calls around the Green lane area but continue to monitor this. We have now identified a number of people that generate repeat calls for service. The reasons for these calls can be varied and complex we have visited a number of people to understand their issues and needs. Where necessary we have and continue to work with the council to address the issue. This has involved warnings being issued.

Drugs use and supply: 

We are aware that drug use within the community is a concern, often our children are at the centre of this and they themselves may be tempted by such substances. We are listening and working to address these concerns by referring a number of youths for support and working to prosecute those responsible for supplying such substances. We may not always immediately act on the information and the work we do may not always be visible but your community officer’s review and act on the information you provide. Information about drug use and dealing can be given to the Police by a number of means including the 101 number or in person. You can also contact crime stoppers anonymously 


Immingham is an industrial town which includes one of the busiest ports in the country. This generates a lot of heavy goods vehicle traffic around the area. Unfortunately, the infrastructure isn’t in place to give all these drivers and vehicles access to either short term or overnight parking, and facilities to shop, which can cause issues when these vehicles are looking for somewhere to park up for the night, or just to visit shops to buy food etc. Although there are a couple of lorry parks in the area, at Ulceby and off Manby Road by-pass, the number of trucks will, on occasions, exceed the capacity. And of course, there are those drivers who will not wish to pay for these services. 

The introduction of the 7.5T Gross Vehicle Weight limit throughout Immingham has greatly reduced the number of heavy goods vehicles traveling through the town. These trucks should now only enter the town to give access in line with their business, for example, loading/unloading goods at a store. 

However, very occasionally, a report is received of vehicles breaking the weight limit. Also, the odd tractor unit is seen to visit the car parks off Washdyke Lane. When able, your local officers will speak to these drivers, and verbally warn them regarding breaking the weight limit. Letters are also sent to their companies informing them that their driver has breached the weight limit and for them to advise all drivers regarding the regulations around Immingham. The NPT also have information leaflets in several languages to inform foreign drivers of these regulations. 

The issues surrounding the use of heavy goods vehicles around Immingham is not a new one, and is not just for the Community Policing Team to resolve. As well as education and enforcement, there needs to be a joint partnership approach between local agencies and private businesses to help resolve the long term problems, such as suitable (free?) parking facilities, access to shops and conveniences. In the meantime, your local officers will deal with each incident as it merits.
