Shop Theft – Scunthorpe Town Centre

19/11/2019

Our pilot evidence packages have now been used in 10 reports and led to 9 people being charged with shop theft. This month we have visited out top 3 stores for feedback on the pilot of our evidence packages. The security guards using the packages tell us that it is much quicker for them and is saving them time so they can be out front in their stores keeping shoplifters away. Our top 3 shop theft locations are using "fill-in-the-blank" statements and evidence labels so they can get evidence together as soon as a shop theft has taken place. Our next step is to expand the use of our packages and release a new deterrent into our stores to prevent shop theft before it happens.

Our other work on shop theft:

- We are in the process of signing up store managers to My Community Alert so they can get updates on what is going on in their area;

- We have visited West Yorkshire Police to learn about some of the cutting edge tactics they are using to reduce shop theft in their area;

- Working with managers from the 10 most impacted stores to design out crime. We have been really encouraged by many of our Town Centre retailers taking proactive action to mitigate their risks;

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

- Officers are completing regular patrols around the Town Centre - both in highly visible uniform and also plain clothes. Our patrols are also taking place with partner agencies to provide a comprehensive approach to tackling local issues;

We have seen some positive results with a number of offenders being prosecuted - you can read more here

Anti Social Behaviour – West Street

19/11/2019

In November we issued 11 Community Protection Warnings to punters who had tried to obtain the services of sex workers in this area. They are now under conditions not to be on West Street, Wells Street or Frodingham Road between 8pm and 6am. This comes as part of Operation Perak, our response to sex work in Scunthorpe town centre. High visibility and plain clothes patrols are taking place on a daily basis to disrupt sex work and detect punters.

What else have you done about this?

- Overall we have dealt with over 20 punters by interview or letters to the registered keeper of their vehicles;

- 9 cruiser letters have been sent to cars suspected of attempting to pick up sex workers;

- 12 people have been interviewed on suspicion of attempting to obtain the services of a sex worker;

If you have any information about this, please contact us through the 101 number or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111) to remain anonymous.

Youth Anti Social Behaviour – Vue Cinema & Frodingham Road

19/11/2019

In the last month the team have sent out 31 warning letters, warning young people to stay out of an area they have been causing anti social behaviour in for 28 days. This has been successful as 80% of those young people have not come to our attention again. Calls for service at Vue Cinema have fallen from 48% of Town's ASB reports in the first two weeks of October to 23% in the first two weeks of November. 7 young people were also given an extended warning and parents given an indepth visit to dicuss how to stop this behaviour. Finally, 3 Community Protection Warnings have been issued to parents who's children have breached both their warnings.

Our plan is to:

- Refer young people causing persistent problems to the Anti Social Behaviour Panel Appropriate Behaviour Contracts, Parenting Orders and Civil Injunctions;

- Patrol Frodingham Road in the evenings to prevent and disrupt anti social behaviour;

- As part of Operation Topaz, our response to ASB around Halloween and Bonfire Night, we had two weeks of intense patrolling in the Vue Cinema and Frodingham Road areas. We undertook 3 patrols with a outreach youth worker, who was able to speak to several well known young people and give them advice and support. During the operation, three young people were taken home for being abusive in public, whilst 3 young people were taken home after concerns for their safety were raised. 1 young person was also stopped and searched after suspicious behaviour in Memorial Gardens.

If you see young people acting inappropriately or causing anti social behaviour then be sure to report it to the police on 101.

Street Drinking - Frodingham Road

19/11/2019

We have been receiving reports of large groups of males congregating in different spots along Frodingham Road drinking beer, cider and spirits. In response, this last month we have conducted 4 spot checks on off-licenses on Frodingham Road. One shop failed to meet its license conditions on both an intial and follow up visit and has now been referred to our Licensing Team for further action.

Our plan is to:

- Work with licensing teams in the police and North Lincolnshire Council to better regulate off-licenses in the area;

- Work with the off-licenses to identify what kinds of alcohol is being bought and where from, so we can limit its use in public;

- Proactively patrol Frodingham Road and challenge those seen drinking under the Public Space Protection Order;

- Educate foreign national street drinkers through leaflets translated into Romanian, Polish and Russian so they don't do it again.

If you see people drinking in the street, report it to the council on 01724 297000

Anti Social Behaviour – Dunstall Street

19/11/2019

In October the court granted a variation to a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) on one local man for causing anti social behaviour and public order offences on Dunstall Street. He was found guilty of breaching his CBO and sentence to 12 weeks imprisonment. He has now been excluded from the town centre (except to attend prearranged appointments) until March 2021. Businesses and shops along Dunstall Street now report a big decrease in issues with street drinking, rough sleepers, begging and disorderly behaviour.

Anti Social Behaviour was reported on Dunstall Street throughout August and September. Our plan included:

- Two men, both known to drink in the street and behave in a disorderly way, were given formal warnings excluding them from the area for three months;

- High visibility targeted patrols, speaking to local business owners and listening to their concerns;

- #Humbertalking has been conducted down Dunstall Street and most business have signed up to this. This enables us to contact business with updates;

- We have co-ordinated with partners from housing, environmental health, drug and alcohol services and safer neighbourhoods to provide support to rough sleepers and make the area cleaner and tidier.

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).
