‘Humber Talk’ Tackles Local Issues

It’s Good to ‘Humber Talk’

Over the past six months, police officers and PCSOs have been knocking on doors across our region and talking to residents in our Humber Talking surveys.

So far across North East Lincolnshire, we have knocked on over 7,500 doors and heard from over 2,000 local residents who have told us all about the area where they live and any issues that are causing them concern.

Some of the issues raised include anti-social behaviour, drug-related activity, nuisance motorbikes, fly-tipping, street drinking and issues relating to nuisance neighbours.
We have been listening to you and are working hard to deal with the issues that you’ve told us about.

Neighbourhood Chief Inspector Will Jenkins said: “We’ve had a phenomenal response to Humber Talking and it’s been really interesting to hear what our communities feel about their local area. The feedback that we have had through the survey has now helped shape the way that we are policing North East Lincolnshire, making sure that it remains a great place to live, work and visit. The issue that has been raised the most, by those that have taken part in the survey so far, is anti-social behaviour – particularly connected to drug-related activity and nuisance motorbikes.

He continued: “We have listened to these concerns and taken action to tackle those issues and I’m sure you’ll have seen some of the recent results that we’ve been sharing on our social media pages. From carrying out warrants, seizing drugs and making arrests, to challenging anyone seen riding a motorcycle antisocially my team have been busy taking action based on what you’ve told us.”

Chief Inspector Jenkins continued: “I am really pleased that the community have got behind the initiative and have been sharing information with us and I would like to thank everyone that has taken the time to complete the survey. By sharing your concerns we have been able to consider community priorities alongside our policing ones and this is something that I am eager to continue. I would encourage people to keep talking to us about any concerns and information. Nobody knows more about an area than those that live and work there and your information, together with what our officers see and hear when they are out on patrol, helps us to understand any issues and identify the best way to address them.”

You can get in touch by calling the non-emergency 101 line or by popping into your local station.

Alternatively, if you would like to report information anonymously you can do so via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
