What's Happening In Your Area?


Child Criminal Exploitation

There has been a notable increase over the last few months of youths who are being coerced or threatened into crime and as such our team wishes to abolish Child Criminal Exploitation in the Humberston and New Waltham area. This would not be possible without every agency assisting, and as such we aim to be active on our ward and target addresses and people which have information being fed through. We will be available to ask advice about this matter and strive to do everything we can to prevent these types of offences taking place.

If you see children involved in drug dealing activities, chances are is that they are being exploited. Please ring it in to the police so we can try and protect this vulnerable group of our society. You may see drug dealing, we do too, but it’s the risk of serious harm to some of those doing this and by reporting we can put things in place to protect them.

We are currently working with a number of children from within the local area who are receiving support from the local policing team in conjunction with a number of partner agencies, whom we work closely with.

Child Sexual Exploitation

This issue has been raised due to the heightened number of reported issues regarding Child Sexual Exploitation and is a priority that every officer aims to prevent. Prevention would not be possible without every agency assisting, and as such we aim to be active on our ward and target addresses and people which are involved, or have been involved. Our local officers will respond to every call regarding this matter effectively and will strive to get the best resolution for all parties affected. Information about this matter should be fed through either the 101 system or the GET IN TOUCH email link above as a matter of priority.

We urge you to continue to report your concerns to your local team, through the 101 number, by using the online links below or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).

Drugs Supply and Misuse:

We are taking a no nonsense, proactive stance on drug related offences. However, we need your help, to tackle the recent increase on our ward area.  The information that you provide will allow us to apply for a drugs warrants and when granted will allow us to execute the warrant under "Operation Galaxy" With your Neighbourhood Policing Team, Op Galaxy teams are working robustly towards beating the drug suppliers and users within your community.

Our assurance to you.

You can rest assured and sleep peacefully, that any information you supply to the police is handled in the strictest confidence, your details are NEVER divulged to anyone in or outside of the Police organisation apart from those officers dealing with the incoming intelligence.

With the support of our community the local neighbourhood team are currently gathering information and intelligence in relation to the issue highlighted by yourselves. Operation Galaxy continues and we are targeting offenders that are suppling drugs in your area. 

Drugs are an issue that effects many lives – the impact of those involved is many, Offenders who take drugs will target properties and shops in order to fund their habit, which can cause burglaries to spike as they have. They also have an impact on the shops as thefts rise, although COVID is possibly aiding a slight reduction in that currently.

Drug use/supply also effects local communities as it often causes disruption to home life to those around the subjects or subject address. Our challenges are to target those involved in this type of crime – intelligence gathering for warrants at address’s, using social media in the way of My Community Alerts, Facebook & Twitter bringing the issue to the attention of members of our community to heighten your awareness and to encourage reporting problems to us.

We utilise local groups – ward councillors, housing partnerships to target those that are effecting the lives of those around them. At the same time, putting support in for those that need it should they be displaced or be put at risk as a result of police actions carried out.

If you see any suspicious activity that may be related to drug taking or dealing, please call us on the 101 number or go online and report your concerns via "Crime Stoppers", you do not even need to give your personal details.

Vehicles/Speeding/General ASB:

We have been advised that 'boy racers' are using the following roads in an Anti Social Manner, contrary to Section 3 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.

North Sea Lane, Boating lake car park, Chichester and Taylors Aves, Hewitts Ave and Tescos car park, Gy Road and down Tetney road into Lincolnshire.

The Team are looking into further Policing Operations along with partner agencies regarding this matter and would welcome our residents to report these incidents going forward.

Working closely with our traffic officers and Safer roads Humber, for the month of December we can report the following:

A46 Clee Road, Cleethorpes: 3 enforcement visits, 16 speed detections
Tetney Road, Humberston: 1 enforcement visit, 2 speed detections
North Sea Lane, Cleethorpes: 1 enforcement visits, 0 speed detections

In partnership with NELC (North East Lincolnshire Council), we have issued one ticket in relation to Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) where a driver and his friends deemed it necessary to set off fireworks from a stationery vehicle.

The local Policing Team have issued one x Section 59 warning to the owner/driver and the vehicle for driving in an anti-social manner. Should this driver/owner drive his or any other vehicle in an anti-social manner again within 12 months - then that vehicle will be seized by Police.


Since the lockdown during November the team had five calls for service when it came to general anti-social behaviour. The team are continuing to work with both partner agencies as well as with residents. 

However we would like to encourage you to contact Police in order to report all anti-social behaviour incidents. Unfortunately we do not monitor all social media platforms (like Facebook) and we do rely on your call for service which would allow us to have the right resources at the right place at the right time.
