Safer Together Newsletter - January 2022
Happy new year!
The last quarter has been a busy one for the Safer Together Team and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner. The annual Crime and Policing Survey was carried out. In recent years this has only available online, this year with the additional support of myself and the team we were able to engage with residents and ask their views face to face and support people to have their say on the future of policing in Lincolnshire who may not have been able to have their say in previous years.
Over the past year and coming year I will be engaging with various programs including the Skegness Community Alcohol Partnership (CAP), Mutual Gain and Good Neighbour Scheme. I will be ensuring to build strong relationships with Town and Parish Councils as well as continuing to support local community projects.
The Community Asked We Listened
Residents in Hogsthorpe raised concerns to the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner regarding a rise in scams and fraud within their local area.
In response to this, in partnership with the Neighbourhood Policing Team and Lincolnshire Police Crime Prevention team, we held a successful drop-in session where people could have a hot drink and biscuits, get advice on how to deal with concerns of fraud, receive reassurance and raise any general concerns of community safety.
Due to its success, we will be looking to roll these out in various areas in 2022.
Neighbourhood Policing Priority Setting Meetings
I continue to attend and or inform the Coast and Wolds Neighbourhood Priority Setting Meetings with any information, concerns, and feedbacks from residents. This information is used to identify priorities for each area.
Every Friday at 10am, the Coast Neighbourhood Policing Team have a slot on the Coastal Sounds radio called ‘Coastal Beat’. Listen in to get up to date information on different things happening, you may even hear my voice every now and again!
Supporting local projects
I am continuing to engage with partners across East Linsey both in the Wolds and along the Coast to support local projects to help improve levels of community safety.
If you have a community project you would like support with or raise awareness please do get in contact via email: Roisin.Mullee2@lincs.police.uk
