Community Safety



Your Council works in partnership with other agencies to reduce crime and disorder and improve community safety across the District. By working together we will ensure South Holland is a safe and enjoyable place to live, work and visit.  We are all committed to developing and promoting South Holland as a thriving, living and working rural community in order to improve the quality of life for all residents in South Holland and encourage the sense of pride in the District.

The Crime and Disorder Act 1998 established Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships (CDRPs). The purpose of the Partnership is to reduce crime and the fear of crime and improve community trust and confidence.

Our partners include Lincolnshire Police, Lincolnshire County Council, the Clinical Commissioning Groups (formerly Primary Care Trusts), Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue and Lincolnshire Probation Trust.

The Householders and the Use of Force Against Intruders leaflet (PDF , 343KB) has been prepared in response to some confusion among people in communities arising from recent incidents that have come to court. It is a joint statement from the Crown Prosecution Service and the Association of Chief Police Officers.

 
Domestic abuse is a crime that cuts across all social, cultural and religious boundaries. Nationally, one in four women will experience domestic abuse at some point in their lives as will one in six men; with the police receiving a call about domestic abuse every minute in the UK.

Two women are murdered every week in England and Wales at the hands of their partners or ex-partners. Lincolnshire Police actively encourages the reporting of domestic abuse and will take all such reports seriously and works with a number of partner agencies to address domestic abuse.

Womens Aid is the key national charity working to end domestic violence against women and children.
What are Hate Crimes and Hate Incidents?

Hate Motivation

Hate crimes and hate incidents are taken to mean any crime or incident where the perpetrator’s hostility or prejudice against an identifiable group of people is a factor in determining who is victimised. (ACPO, 2000:13)

Hate crime or incident

 A Hate crime or Incident is any crime or incident which is perceived, by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a person’s actual or perceived social group or groups.

For the purpose of the strategy the hate crime strands we will be focusing are monitored Hate Crimes / Incidents:

  • Disability
  • Race
  • Religion and Belief
  • Sexual orientation
