What's Happening In Your Area?


Rural Burglaries

We have noted a small rise in burglaries In February in Kirton Lindsey and Messingham particularly overnight. As part of our crime prevention work we will be  conducting revisits to victims of burglaries, along with visits to neighbours. This helps to gather intelligence from the community, obtian their support in reporting any suspicious circumstances and highlight simple measures that property owners can take to protect their homes, sheds and garages.

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

We have been working as a partnership with a number of agencies to support a family on the ward. We have identified some joint problem solving actions and, working with  the family we are offering early intervention to reduce their vulnerabilities.  This is resulting in some engagement from the family, better educational attendance and less impact on the community from antisocial behaviour.

Anti Social Behaviour in Holme

We have been working with our colleagues from the Bottesford Ward in order to address reports of anti social behavour in the area where both our wards border. We have been investigating reports of arson and reports of off road riding using both motorbikes and quad bikes. We will be continuing to focus patrols on this area in order to disrupt this activity and identify those involved. We will continue to work with our partner agencies to divert offending and provide the community with reassurance that interventions are in place to reduce this type of offending.
