Call your local police on 101 - in an emergency always call 999
Lincs Alert is a community messaging system run by Lincolnshire Police. The messaging system acts as a tool for the police to give information to registered members on crime reduction and community safety issues. Members are also able to provide information to the police.
Neighbourhood Policing Teams
Every household in our area is covered by a Neighbourhood Policing Team. The teams were created as part of the National Neighbourhood Policing Initiative. Neighbourhood Policing provides people who live or work in a neighbourhood with:
- Access - to local Policing services through a named point of contact
- Influence - over Policing priorities in their neighbourhood
- Interventions - joint action with partners and the public
- Answers - sustainable solutions and feedback on what is being done.
Each Neighbourhood Policing Team works with their local communities, responding to concerns raised through local neighbourhood panels of representatives and by engaging with their community. Each team works with other agencies and partners, including ourselves, to address local priorities and areas of concern. The teams then feed back to their communities, telling you what is being done and finding out if you are satisfied with the results.
Each team covers a specific area and is led by a Community Beat Manager. Beat Managers are experienced Police Officers with knowledge of community policing. Each team also includes at least one Police Community Support Officer.
Neighbourhood Policing Teams play a very important part helping Lincolnshire Police fulfil its Policing Pledge. Working with local communities means that the Beat Teams can help tackle issues that are important to you.
You can have your local concerns raised at Neighbourhood Panel Meetings. Keep an eye out for your next one and go along to it and have your say!
