Shop Theft – Scunthorpe Town Centre

A main priority for the Town Centre continues to be shop theft. Shop theft is the biggest single category of crime in Town, making up 26% of recorded crime. Starting in April 2019 we have put in place a new plan. This includes:

- Targeting those who cause the community the most harm by seeking orders on them to exclude them from the Town Centre;

- Working with local drugs services to get offenders who use illegal drugs the support they need to recover;

- Working with managers from the 10 most impacted stores to design out crime;

- The ShopWatch scheme is being changed to focus on preventing crime and disrupting or deterring offenders;

- Shop theft investigations are being improved by adding more features to in-store evidence packs;

- Officers are completing regular patrols around the Town Centre daily - both in highly visible uniform and also plain clothes; 

Shop theft has gone down by 3.9% when you compare the last 6 months of 2019 with the same 6 months in 2018.

We have seen some positive results with a number of offenders being prosecuted - you can read more here: https://www.humberside.police.uk/news/five-court-following-shop-theft-crackdown

Anti Social Behaviour – West Street

The community has told us through surveys and meetings that there are problems with anti social behavior on West Street. This is a key priority for the team and our plan includes:

- Officers going out on foot patrol in the West Street area daily;

- Closing down properties in the area involved in crime, such as doing warrants in the Town Centre area;

- Working with partners around homelessness and drug use to divert people away from this kind of anti social behavior;

- Engaging with the local school by attending at school opening and closing time to speak with parents and teachers.

We are excited to be working on a project with North Lincolnshire Council and the Community Safety Partnership looking to provide targeted support to some of our most vulnerable people frequenting the West Street area and we look forward to sharing more updates in the weeks and months ahead. 

Market Hill – Inappropriate Callers

Over recent weeks we have received reports of people attending properties throughout the Market Hill area of the ward and targeting vulnerable residents. We want to be clear that we will not tolerate this type of behaviour anywhere in North Lincolnshire. We therefore continue to visit residents in the area, provide support, advice and reassurance, while also identifying those responsible and taking action accordingly.

If anybody has information about those responsible for these issues, please contact us through the 101 number or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).
