To ensure that the needs of the people of Lincolnshire continue to be met, to see improvements in service and crime reduction as well as to meet challenges of growing threats such as child sexual exploitation, cyber-crime and human trafficking, I need to budget carefully.
As part of the decision making process I feel it is important to obtain the views of the people of Lincolnshire.
Please follow the link below and rest assured that your views really do matter to me. At the end of the survey there is also the chance the provide any other feedback you would like to give me.
Thank you for your time and input.
Police and Crime Commissioner for Lincolnshire
Good Morning from the Sleaford Neighbourhood Policing Team.
There is to be a Summer Engagement Event held from 10am-3pm on the 25th August at Sainsburys, Sleaford.
John Horton, the Engagement and Campaigns Officer who organises the events said, “In many respects these events formalise what Officers and PCSOs do every working day but provide opportunities for more in-depth chats and interactions. Although the content and structure of each event vary depending on availability of Officers, most will feature EMOpSS Vehicles, an opportunity to speak to Senior Officers and the PCC, Volunteer recruitment and crime prevention advice.
Please come along, we’d love to see you there.
PCSO Amy Sibbet
Sleaford Town PCSO.
As harvest approaches there is a need to take precautions and be increasingly vigilant to reduce the risk of deliberate fires. Historically, there have been issues once stacks begin to appear across the county. However, the following measures can be taken to minimise risks:
- A quick survey around a farm will identify where an arsonist could strike.
- Stacks should be of a reasonable size and at least 10 metres apart.
- Removing hay and straw from the field quickly after harvest will take away a potential arson target.
- It is also essential to maintain firefighting equipment and to prepare a fire routine and action plan for the safety of your family and employees
The Arson Task Force have produced Arson Prevention Leaflets specifically for farmers and these can be downloaded or are readily available on request
