Existing cases

If you don't feel like you are getting any progress with an existing case you've reported, you can make use of something called the Community Trigger. The Community Trigger gives victims and communities who are suffering from anti-social behaviour the right to ask that their case be reviewed if they feel that their complaint has not had an adequate response.  Learn more about Community Trigger today.

The North Lincolnshire Safer Neighbourhoods Partnership contains lots of information and links to help you deal with issues relating to crime, anti-social behaviour, domestic violence/abuse, and drugs & alcohol.

Prevent Strategy

Prevent is one part of the Government's strategy for countering terrorism and extremism in the UK, and we're proud to work with Humberside Police to help to identify such things in our region. Terrorism and extremism is not restricted to those influenced or associated with causes advocated by Al Qaeda and IS. There are also risks from the Extreme Right Wing, Northern Ireland related terrorism and other single causes.

The Channel process is a key element of the Prevent strategy, and that's where we can all help with identifying and supporting those individuals that are vulnerable and are at risk from radicalisation.

For more information, email: For all suspicious activity which requires an immediate response, you should contact Humberside Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.
