East Lindsey Newsletter - September 2022
Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn…
A busy summer it has been for the Safer Together Team out and about engaging with residents alongside the Neighbourhood Policing Teams across East Lindsey.
Skegness 999 Day was a huge success discussing community safety with residents along the Coast. Barney from Victim Lincs attended alongside me and provided information for those who have been a victim of a crime.
Op California is a multi-agency approach along the Coast to target the use of illegal alcohol and the use of drugs. A great initiative to keep the Coast a safer place to live work and visit during the summer season.
As the Fraud Lead for the team, I have been working on events across the Coast to help give individuals the information and confidence to deal with scams and fraud if they were to become a victim. The first one was held in September in Skegness in partnership with County Care. The next one is being held in Mablethorpe in November.
I have also been working alongside my colleague Maisie McMahon the coordinator for North and South Kesteven on a project called Lincolnshire Strong Voices. This program is being held in school and local communities to give young people the opportunity to have their voices heard on issues which are important to them in our local area.
For people with dementia at risk of going missing. This scheme helps police track down people with dementia. It requires carers and families to complete an online form to record vital information should they go missing. The form includes carers details, medication, and a description and a photo of the person. The re-launch coincides with a launch of the smart dementia bands in East Lindsey. For more information or to request a band please visit: firstname.lastname@example.org
