What's Happening In Your Area?


Anti-Social Behaviour

Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) is always a priority for us at the Neighbourhood Team, with recent reports of ASB in Scartho. ‘Hot spot’ offending locations for ASB are; St Giles Avenue, Glebe Road, and The Rose & Crown public house. School home time creates an increase in young people on the streets and recent gathering of groups around shops have been reported along with some anti-social behaviour. In response we are increasing patrols around shops and their immediate surroundings to engage and divert any negative behaviour.

In light of recent reports, the local community policing team have increased patrols within the area, including joint partnership patrols with North East Lincolnshire Council. 

We are aware of the impact anti-social behaviour can have on people and communities blighted by the inconsiderate behaviour of others. We work very closely with our partners to resolve problems and ensure those people engaging in anti-social behaviour are challenged and held to account. 

We are keen to hear from anyone that have concerns about anti-social behaviour and encourage people to report via 101, our non-emergency contact number. 


The number of Burglaries in December has dropped dramatically and we are pleased to see that Crime prevention messages are being acted upon, and our increased patrols are having a positive effect. Our investigation department have carried out some detailed work and several notable arrests have been made in the last month. Whilst it is not always possible to detect every crime, we continue to strive to bring as many offenders to justice as we can.

Protect your property, follow our tips below:

Make sure your doors and windows are closed and locked when you’re not in the room. Nearly half of all burglaries are down to a door or window being open
Make sure nothing of value (including your car key) is left on show to tempt thieves into your property. 
Think about fitting a burglar alarm and security lighting – both to your home and outbuildings. It may be expensive, but they are very effective deterrents and can bring down your insurance costs.

Sheds, garages and gardens:

Security of gardens and outbuilding buildings is often not your first thought. However, by making a few modifications sheds and garages, along with the equipment stored in them can be made more secure.

Make sure sheds and garages have good quality lock and hinges.
Consider fitting deterrents in the garden like movement sensitive floodlights as these will leave thieves feeling exposed. Likewise alarms on sheds and garages will deter thieves as they would not want to be spotted in out buildings taking property.
Garden tools, DIY equipment and leisure items such as fishing and golf equipment should be locked away in storage cupboards within outbuildings to form a second line of defence to thieves. 
Motorbike and pedal cycles should also be locked even when they are in a shed or garage.
To assist the police in recovering and returning stolen property, people should register valuables onto Cycles, golf and fishing equipment and tools can be easily added onto the property register and then this assists the force in identifying property as stolen/lost, bring offenders to justice and stop the items being sold via second hand stores. The system can also allow owners to upload pictures of unique items.

As well as protecting property in sheds and garages people can also stop thieves stealing plants by using heavy plant pots which will be less desirable to walk off with and ensure that unused garden furniture and tools are stored securely out of sight.




Covid-19 and Community engagement

The Government has changed the rules and new restrictions are in place for tackling the pandemic, there are a number of changes that will come into place on 5th January 2021. For the latest updates please see the government website

In response the local team will continue to patrol, and will be available via the normal channels, however we are unable to attend any face to face engagement events.

As soon as things have improved and we see public spaces opened again we will schedule some events.
