In response to local issues, the East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership Plan (2013-16) has been published.
The East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership aims to create local solutions to local problems to tackle issues of crime and disorder and improve the quality of life for people living, working or visiting the area.
It is a statutory partnership made up of the following organisations:
Ø Boston Borough, East Lindsey and South Holland District Councils
Ø Lincolnshire County Council
Ø Lincolnshire Police
Ø Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue
Ø Lincolnshire Probation Trust
Ø Clinical Commissioning Groups
Ø Reduce violence and abuse, and the fear of it
Ø Improve relations between local residents and migrant communities
Ø Create safer, cleaner and more welcoming neighbourhoods and public places
Ø Increase the feeling of safety amongst communities
The East Lincolnshire CSP must carry out a yearly assessment of the levels of crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour in the local area. The partnership must then produce a partnership plan which sets out the priorities and how these will be tackled.
Our Current Priorities:
Ø Anti-Social Behaviour
Ø Violent Crime (including Domestic Abuse)
Ø Community Cohesion
We will also address fear of crime and alcohol misuse throughout the above priorities.
Your Council works closely with ADDACTION to tackle drug problems and drug related crime and with Children's Services and the Youth Offending Service to tackle anti-social behaviour and engage young people in diversionary activities.
Throughout the three year life of the partnership plan (2013-2016) there will be continuous monitoring and evaluation. Currently, the overall incidence of crime and disorder within the district is low.
New guidance for partnerships (PDF , 69KB) places emphasis on CSPs being more intelligence led and has guided the development of the Neighbourhood Policing Teams.

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.
