Details

Shop Theft – Scunthorpe Town Centre

November 2020

Shop theft- SelectaDNA continues to be rolled out in the Scunthorpe Town Centre. More stores will be added in and around the town as the roll out carrys on. Officers have now provided all the stores that have signed up to use SelectaDNA with the packs and you will see the signs in the windows showing that they are using SelectaDNA.

The advanced Forensic marking will hopefully reduce shop theft in the Town Centre.

We are currently conducting retail surveys with stores and making recommendations regarding how they can protect themselves from theft.

We deal with shop theft offenders as a priority and are currently applying for a number of Criminal Behaviour Orders on our most prolific offenders.

Shop Theft Evidence Packs have been delivered to stores to make shop theft detection and investigation a swift process.

The High Street is patrolled by local officers and PCSOs daily, you will see our deployments on our Facebook page. 

Sex Work – West Street

November 2020

Sex work on West Street has remained a priority for the Town Ward Team since 2019 due to concerns from local residents. This week 2 males were given Community Protection Warnings for having a sex worker in their vehicle.

With the support of Police, Blue Door have launched a Re:Set programme to support women involved in sex work. The Police refer all women into the service so that they can access support agencies and be supported to change their way of life.

The Police are also committed to protecting the community, local school, children’s centre and businesses. We recognise the impact sex work has on the community and will not persistent breaches or ASB within the area. We will help and support as much as we can before we take positive action against those who will not engage with the outreach teams. 

In addition to this, the Town Team are also tackling kerb crawlers who exploit the women involved. The majority of these offenders have been banned from entering the exclusion zone including West Street, parts of Frodingham Road, Wells Street, Berkeley Street and Allanby Street. Persons are also not permitted to associate or communicate, indirectly or directly with any sex worker.

Drug Dealing 

November 2020

The Town team are always gathering intelligence relating to drug dealing, both on-street and from local addresses. An address on Doncaster Road was recently raided and class A drugs seized from within. A number of arrests were also made.

We are patrolling Memorial Gardens as a priority following reports of drug dealing, and performing stop searches on the offenders involved.

Additional addresses of interest were also tackled through drug warrants by Operation Galaxy. Keep coming back for further details and updates, and please report any suspicious activity to the team by calling us on 101.
