What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

Anti-Social Behaviour: 

The Humberston and New Waltham Policing team face several challenges when it comes to Anti-Social Behaviour and there has been five calls for service for October 2019. These calls are based around Tesco and as such we are prioritising this area. 

All issues should be reported through 101 or using the GET IN TOUCH email link below.

Update

We have seen a drop for calls for service this month, however 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 TOPAZ patrols, which is aimed at Halloween and Bonfire night.

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.

Commercial Burglaries: 

We have quite a few of businesses within Humberston and New Waltham Ward and we are actively working with all the businesses in the area. Especially those on Wilton Road, North Sea Lane in Humberston and Station Road in New Waltham.

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

We have had three Commercial burglaries in a short space of time targeting the same premises. Your local Policing Team are working with our partner agencies and businesses to target those responsible and prevent any further offences taking place.

Dwelling Burglaries: The Haverstoe, Humberston and New Waltham Policing team face several challenges when it comes to dwelling burglaries and there has been 10 calls for service this month where by residential properties have been targeted or attempted in the first 11 days of November 2019.

It appears that those responsible are trying insecure properties and forcing locks in an attempt to gain entry and steal keys belonging to your vehicles before attempting to take your vehicles. It is believed that the vehicles that are being targeted as the higher performing vehicles. 

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.

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 immoveable 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 https://www.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 

Update: Your local Policing Team have stepped up patrols where we have attended addresses and spoken to residents with the view of signing them up to My Community Alert and also conducting Humber talking surveys. Officers have been conducting high visibility and plain clothes patrols in the area to aid in preventing any offences from taking place.
