What's Happening In Your Area?
Your community officers identify and support the vulnerable: We are actively working to identify vulnerable repeat callers within the community. We are working with partner agencies to provide support and alternative accommodation to a number of residents within Immingham. Officers from your area have attended partnership meetings and conducted visits to those concerned. On occasion calls are made to the Police when people don’t know who to turn to. Whilst we may not always be the best placed to assist we are working hard to secure the services required by those residents.
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. Dealing with youth offenders can be a very complex task we have been attending partner meetings and consulting regularly with youth offending services in relation to a number of people. We have supported our investigation and patrol colleagues where possible building cases against some of the most prolific offenders resulting in custodial sentences for three males over recent weeks. We recognise custodial sentences are not always the answer and have been working to support other individuals when we feel this is the best outcome. We are working closely with the council and reviewing evidence that may result in Community Protection Warnings. If successful these warnings will be served on parents of those youths we are most concerned about.
Drugs use and supply: We have executed drugs warrants in your area. These come about as a result of your information and from concerns raised by housing partners and the schools our children attend. 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
