Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour Grimsby Town Centre

Anti-Social Behaviour is still centred around Freshney Place and Victoria Street but has seen a movement towards St James Square involving young people.

The Neighbourhood Policing Team are aware and are taking positive action in by completing Home Visits, issuing Banning notices, Community Protection Warnings and Notices. Referring the people involved to the apprpriate services and when needed dealing with them for criminal offences.

We are working with partners such as Freshney Place, McDonald's, ENGIE, Youth services and North East Lincolnshire Council Safer Communities Team.

If you see any Anti-Social Behaviour in the area of the Grimsby Town Centre please contact us on 101.

Drug dealing

We are building and developing intelligence through out the West Marsh as a whole. As always we encourage the public to report any suspicious activity. This can either be done via 101, the force website or Crimestoppers.

West Marsh Safer Streets Project 

The West Marsh of Grimsby have been allocated Home Office funding as part of the Safer Streets Initiative via the Office of Police and Crime Commissioner. The aim of the project is to reduce serious and acquisitive crime such as burglary. In order to achieve our aims the safer Street team will deliver the following in the West Marsh area -

  • Additional Street Lighting
  • Additional CCTV cameras
  • Target hardening to vulnerable properties
  • Vehicle recognition camera (ANPR) 
  • Listening and reacting to resident concerns 

As part of this project the local policing team have been assisting with door knocks offering free home security checks.

The team have also delivered 4x days of action to the West Marsh area. This was supported by a passive drugs dog and Humberside fire service drone. This was conducted on the 11/10/21, 10/11/21, 14/02/22, and 10/04/22 and resulted in 22x person searches, 3x cannabis warnings issued and 4x arrests being made. We also executed a warrant on Lime street under the misuse of drugs act and arrests were made. 

The safer streets project has already made a big impact in the area of Haycroft Avenue underpass. Shrubs and bushes have been cut back, new alley gates installed, lighting has been improved and CCTV cameras have been installed. There has been positive feedback from local residents saying they feel much safer walking through the underpass.

The Safer Streets Project has now come to an end. Thank you to everybody who contributed to this project to make it such a success.

The West Marsh Community Centre still have a limited amount of security devices that can be given to West Marsh residents. If you live in the West Marsh and feel you will benefit from some free home security devices please get in touch with the West Marsh Community Centre. Contact number for the centre is 01472 269230

Want to discuss local issues with us?

The team hold regular drop in surgeries at various locations over the ward. This is a good opportunity to speak to somebody from the local team face to face and disucss local issues that are affecting you or the local community. The team can also sign you up to My Community Alert, provide crime prevention advice or complete a Humbertalking Survey with you. Dates, times and locations for these are listed further down this page.

We will also be at the West Marsh Forward meeting at West Marsh Community Centre on 18/05/22 at 6pm if you want to come for some advice or even if you want to simply say hello. This is a good meeting to attend if you want some more information of what is going on on the ward.
