Community Police Panel

The next Community Police Panel meeting which is to be held in the Nocton Village Hall on Monday 24th October 2016 at 7.00pm.

All are welcome to come along and hear what is going on within our Cliff community, with representatives from Lincolnshire Police, Potterhanworth, Dunston, Metheringham, Nocton and other villages covered by our Neighbourhood Police team being present.

This is an ideal opportunity for residents to air any issues that they may have regarding local policing.
Additionally, one item which will be raised is that a number of complaints have been received recently regarding large dogs continually barking, throughout the day and night, and on a number of occasions have either ‘attacked’ or “worried” residents and/or pets with their aggressive behaviour and lack of apparent control by the owners.

I understand that Officers are currently investigating some recent reports and would welcome details of individuals who have been affected by this unreasonable behaviour, which is having a negative impact on our community quality of life. We read almost weekly of aggressive animals attacking children, and in some cases adults, with grave consequences. If you have had any similar experiences, please either let me know so that I can pass your information on, or come along.

Please come along and hear what is being done for our community.

Update 25th October
The meeting was lively and constructive.  In particular, one issue which seems to be escalating and causing the greatest concern, the police have agreed to take a fresh approach to that issue and will be contacting those affected in due course.

It was far more impactive and effective to hear residents collectively expressing their concerns than for PC Hanson our community beat manager to read about it on an incident log.

Once again, well done Nocton.

Many thanks,
Graham Jones
Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator

Warning Over Doorstep Mattress Sales

Councils are warning people not to buy mattresses from door to door sellers.

The Local Government Association, which represents councils in England and Wales said, "Some scam traders were selling dirty mattresses that have been thrown away.

Others were importing them without the proper safety certificates.  The mattresses are then re-packaged, often in branded wrapping.

Some sellers pretend a local hotel is selling them after ordering too many."

Report It
If you have been a victim of doorstep crime, call 101 to report it.  If you are in immediate danger, call 999.

If you have any information about any person(s) who have committed such crimes or details of vehicles they use, contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.  Your call is free and is completely anonymous.
