Shop Theft – Scunthorpe Town Centre

11/09/2019

So far in September 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. Keep your eye out for news on how we've acted on what we've learnt. Our evidence package trial continues and we have visited stores taking part to see how they are getting on.

In August we launched an exciting new pilot of evidence packages to make tackling shop theft quicker and easier. Our top 3 shop theft locations now have access to "fill-in-the-blank" statements and evidence labels so they can get evidence together as soon as a shop theft has taken place. This is so that well known shop theft offenders can be arrested and put before the court in less time, meaning they have less chance to commit thefts. Our next step is to tackle the worst offenders through Criminal Behaviour Orders and Community Protection Warnings.

Our other work on shop theft:

- 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

11/09/2019

3 local people have been interviewed so far this month about suspected exploitative behaviour on West Street after being sighted by our dedicated patrols in the area. Our investigation continues into these cases. PC Parker also visited Hull to learn about what their local policing team do to tackle anti social behaviour in a similar area.

In July and August we patrolled the area on foot, in vehicles and in plain clothes. As a result we sent letters to the keepers of several vehicles involved in anti social behaviour in this area. Several people were interviewed about their behaviour and are being referred to an educational course to prevent reoffending. 

Local communities, and businesses have told us that there are ongoing challenges with anti social behaviour in the area of West Street and Memorial Gardens. This is a key priority for the team and our plan includes:

- Officers going out on foot patrol in the West Street area daily - they are also patrolling in plain clothes to target and catch those responsible;

- Closing down properties in the area involved in crime, such as doing warrants in the Town Centre area. Only this month have we worked tirelessly with North Lincolnshire Council to see the area around Hadleigh Court closed down;

- 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 also really 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 ahead. 

Anti Social Behaviour – Dunstall Street

03/09/2019

In August we arrested one local man for a public order offence and breaching his Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO). This man has been given police bail conditions excluding him from the Dunstall Street and High Street area until the end of October. A change in his CBO is being worked on to exclude him from this area for a further year. Two further men, both known to drink in the street and behave in a disorderly way, have been given formal warnings excluding them from the area for three months. Our next step is to work with our partners to get homeless people and street drinkers the help they need.

Anti Social Behaviour has been reported in Dunstall Street throughout August. This includes street drinking, rough sleepers, begging and disorderly behaviour. Our plan has included:

- 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).

Youth Anti Social Behaviour – High Street

11/09/2019

This September, four young people have been identified from CCTV enquiried at the Foundry Shopping Centre and will be referred to the Anti Social Behaviour Panel process so their behaviour can be addressed in partnership with the Council. Positive results have been achieved after a dangerous place where children were going to cause disruption was secured by North Lincolnshire Council and the Police. Calls about young people playing at the site have so far stopped. 

Over the summer holiday we used dispersal powers to exclude young people causing issues in the Town Centre and took a number of children home following reports about their behaviour. The Early Intervention Team visited our hardest to reach young people to tackle their behaviour.

Our next steps are:

- Refer young people to the Anti Social Behaviour Panel so they receive warnings, visits or Appropriate Behaviour Contracts to prevent reoffending;

- Patrol the areas in the Town Centre where young people are being most disruptive.

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