Nuisance and Antisocial Behaviour in Kirton Lindsey

We have received reports of antisocil behavour in the Bircham Crescent, South Cliff Road and Millers Close areas of Kirton Lindsey.

By working with local residents, and colleagues from North Lincolnshire Safer Neighbourhood Team., we have identified a number of those responsible, and now work is ongoing to divert them away from causing further issues and to prevent further incidents.

Door Step Crime - North Lincolnshire

To support the prevention of crime in our communities, we have been working with North Lincolnshire council and launched Trade Watch to help stop residents in rural areas being a target of crime.

The voluntary scheme has been created following reports of door step crime across the county.

It will enable residents to feel safe in their community and send out a clear message that rogue traders and criminal activity will not be accepted.

As part of the scheme, residents will agree not to commit to any work offered on the doorstep and report any suspicious companies or activities to the police.

Residents in rural areas can sign up to the scheme, once they do, they will receive a Trade Watch window sticker and supporting information.

Where full streets or villages take part in the scheme, street signs are available for them to display.

Living in a Trade Watch area will reduce the risk of being approached or becoming a victim of door step crime.

To find out more about Trade Watch, contact the council’s Safer Neighbourhoods team 01724 244665 or email saferneighbourhoods@northlincs.gov.uk

Vulnerability - keeping people safe

Over recent years Humberside Police has made considerable effort to focus on Vulnerability. Everyone in the organisation has a responsibility to ensure the most vulnerable people in our communities are protected. Very often as a police service we are the first point of contact for many people. Having this contact enables us to identify vulnerabilities at an early stage. This will ensure that people who need support and protection receive the correct level of service from both the police and our partners such as social care, mental health services and services in the third sector.

A person is vulnerable if as a result of their situation or circumstances, they are unable to take care or protect themselves, or others, from harm or exploitation. Protecting vulnerable children and adults.

What do we do ?

  • by providing public reassurance through effective deployment of our resources
  • by working with our partners (ONGO, other social housing providers, NLC Safer Neighbourhoods, Victim Support, REMEDI)
  • gather intelligence in relation to any incident involving a vulnerable person to minimise the risk to them
  • maximise opportunities to secure evidence when offences are committed against vulnerable people to ensure offenders are brought to justice and reduce the risk of further victimisation

How do we do this ?

  • complete vulnerable adult assessments and share information with our partners
  • complete vulnerable child assessments for those under 17 and share information with our partners
  • complete Antisocial Behaviour risk assessments to decide on what support is required and work with partners to deliver this
  • ensure that high risk victims are referred promptly which triggers discussion at the Monthly ASB Panel meetings where all partners agree actions to support the victim and reduce their risk

Recent examples of the above are:

The local police officer and PCSO have become involved with a family where there are growing concerns around one of the childrens behaviour. A home visit was conducted after the parent had asked for our help. As a result we have made a referral to the Youth Offending Service for intervention work with the youth and have requested a multi agency meeting to discuss how partners can support the family in managing the behaviour and reduce the risk to all concerned.
