This site contains information on the background of the Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership, our priorities and initiatives and examples of how we are working together to enhance the quality of life in North Lincolnshire by tackling crime, disorder and substance misuse.
As you will see from the site map our activities cover a wide range of topics from AlertBoxes to Alcohol Abuse, from Neighbourhood Watch Groups to Needle Exchange. We work with professionals, other agencies and communities to make North Lincolnshire a better and safer place to live.
What about reporting crime?
Obviously if you are witnessing a crime as it is happening or want to report a serious crime then you should call 999. If the matter is less urgent - kids hanging around the park at 10 o'clock at night making a noise, then you should call 101.
However if you want to report a crime or you think the police should be made aware of something, but you don't want to give your name or address to the police then you should call CrimeStoppers. If you follow the link you can find out what they do and how they do it!
Channel 4 Programme 'Skint'
A joint statement from Humberside Police, North Lincolnshire Homes, Humberside Probation Trust and North Lincolnshire Council:
“It was very disappointing to see how the first episode of Channel 4’s Skint documentary depicted life on the Westcliffe Estate. The programme showed only a fraction of residents and does not portray an accurate picture of what life is really like for the majority of residents living there.
“Westcliffe has been subject to a lot of successful partnership work in recent years with local residents and community groups. And there has been a marked reduction in the types of crime that have a real impact on quality of life for those living in the area.
“A lot of good work is taking place and major investment to improve life and chances on the estate. We have also seen an increase in those accessing work.
“A number of crime and disorder issues that took place during filming were shown. Many of these were dealt with at the time of filming, and the appropriate action taken.
“A number of characters that took part in the documentary are currently on remand or serving sentences after being charged with various offences.
“We will monitor the remaining episodes, but cannot, at this stage, speculate or comment further until we have seen all of them.
“In the meantime, if anyone has got any information or wishes to report any incidents, please call 101.”
