Safer Neighbourhoods



About Safer Neighbourhoods


Safer Neighbourhoods are the internal Community Safety Team of North Lincolnshire Council



Safer Neighbourhoods is the Crime and Disorder Reduction Department of North Lincolnshire Council and are responsible for contributing to the delivery of the Safer Communities Plan.

Annually our analyst produces a Joint Strategic Intelligence Assessment (JSIA) document which identifies the priorities for the partnership. The JSIA aims to provide an accurate picture of the current, emerging and longer-term issues facing the Partnership and shows performance against the priorities set out in the North Lincolnshire Safer Communities Plan.

The JSIA also identifies where the hotspots are for various crimes and who the offenders and victims are, enabling us to focus our resources.


Partner Agencies We Work With

One of the roles of Safer Neighbourhoods is to provide a link between agencies and work together to reduce crime, disorder and substance misuse. These agencies include Humberside Police, North Lincolnshire Council, Humberside Fire & Rescue Service, Registered Social Landlords, Police and Crime Commissioner, the National Probation Service, Community Rehabilitation Company and the National Health Service.

We also play an active role, facilitating responses to crime and disorder issues at the Neighbourhood Action Teams (NAT) which are held in each of the 17 wards of North Lincolnshire and chaired by the local elected member and attended by key members of the community. These are not open meetings to members of the public unless you represent a community group.


How you can get involved?

  • Start or join a local Neighbourhood Watch Group and get involved with the NATs.
  • Become a volunteer by helping leaflet drop in areas and get crime reduction information out in the community.
  • Share any crime reduction information with friends and family.
