Local News Update
It’s that time of the month again to give you our monthly update and our round-up of what’s been going on in East Marsh. It’s hard to think that were now fast approaching the end of July and when you reflect on the year, you realise just what a unique one it’s been so far. We’re having a few staffing moves. Sergeant Jamie ALLEN has now taken the reins of the East Marsh and will be guiding the team to continued success and supporting our community. PC Ruby RAYNER is moving onto Pastures new and I hope you’ll join us in wishing her well. PC Keren JOHNSON will be replacing her. PC JOHNSON is a veteran of the East Marsh with a wealth of experience that will be an asset to your Community. PCSO Marc Ireland has landed with us after a move from another part of the force. We’ll be putting their photos on the website soon. We’re also set to have more Police Officers and Community Support Officers join us in the near future so keep an eye out for them as and when they join us.
Drug Supply and Drug Misuse
We understand there are concerns in respect of drug dealing and drug misuse across the East Marsh community and we are absolutely committed to taking robust action. The information that the local community has provided us has proved pivotal in our response. There have been a number of proactive warrants executed by our Operation Galaxy Team with the assistance of your Neighbourhood Team. Our work doesn't stop once a drug warrant is executed, we are currently working in partnership with Lincolnshire Housing Partnership, Longhurst housing, Guinness Housing and private landlords to ensure that further positive action is taken with breach of tenancies.
If this fails we will continue to use antisocial behaviour legislation that is available to us in order to place closure orders on properties that are involved with drug dealing or cause serious nuisance to the local community.
On Friday 24th July the team were successful in securing a Closure Order at an address on Wellington Street. This was linked to drug supply and use. We hope this sends a strong message out that anything to do with drugs won’t be tolerated on the East Marsh. If you report it, we will act on it!
We urge members of the public to continue to report their concerns to their local team, through the 101 number, by using the online links below or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).
Since 1st July we’ve seen a rise in the number of burglaries reported to us with a total of 14. During the height of the Covid-19 restrictions we saw a large reduction in the number of Burglaries reported to us and they’re now slowly increasing in number. In order to keep your home safe please follow these simple prevention tatics:-
Ensure your locks and security devices are of a high quality and specification.
Always lock your doors and windows before leaving for work, and going to bed.
Keep keys away from windows and doors, preferably in a key safe.
A secure post box or letter cage can stop a burglar from reaching nearby keys or undoing the latch from outside.
Keep high value items, such as laptops and tablets, out of sight from windows on the ground floor.
Theft of Cycles
Theft of cycles continues to be a problem through the East Marsh and the surrounding area.
If you have a garden shed please ensure that it is locked, we do advise that any cycles or equipment inside the shed should also be secured to prevent them just being removed if the shed is broken into. When leaving your cycle outside a shop or other location, ensure that it is locked to something secure to try and prevent theft.
If you do see anyone acting suspiciously in your area, please take time to report it to us, we do take these reports seriously and use them to plan our patrols.
You can register your property free on www.immobilise.com, this helps police to identify the owners of property that is recovered.
We need information from the community to help us identify where the stolen cycles are going to so that action can be taken.
Contact your local team by stopping an officer whilst out on patrol, through the 101 number, by using the online links below or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).
