Anti-social behaviour

The Safer Lincolnshire Partnership's focus area around anti-social behaviour is neighbourhood anti-social behaviour.

Anti-social behaviour is defined by law as conduct that has caused or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person.

  • It covers a range of behaviours such as:
  • abandoned vehicles
  • vehicle nuisance or inappropriate use
  • rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour
  • rowdy or nuisance neighbours
  • littering or drugs paraphernalia
  • animal problems
  • trespassing
  • nuisance calls
  • street drinking
  • noise nuisance
  • begging
  • misuse of fireworks

If you are a victim of anti-social behaviour and feel there is an immediate risk call 999.

You do not have to put up with anti-social behaviour.

Lincolnshire Police, district councils and housing providers have a range of powers available to them for dealing with anti-social behaviour.

Reducing reoffending

The Safer Lincolnshire Partnership's focus areas surrounding reducing reoffending are:

  • integrated offender management
  • women's strategy
  • transition

We support the Assisting Rehabilitation through Collaboration (ARC) partnership to help reduce crime.

ARC aims to reduce:

  • reoffending
  • the number of victims
  • the harm caused by the most prolific and complex offenders

It brings together experts in health, criminal justice, social care and the third sector. It addresses with the causes of crime and not just the symptoms. 

Crime and disorder

We are part of the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership. It focuses on two areas of crime and disorder:

  • digitally enabled fraud
  • identity theft

We work in partnership with agencies across the county to raise awareness of fraud and carry out preventative activity.  We also seek to ensure victims are supported and ensure appropriate enforcement action can be taken.

For advice about fraud, visit the Lincolnshire Police website.

You can find useful contacts for advice about fraud and cyber crime here.

For more information, you can also visit Friends Against Scams.

Substance misuse

The Safer Lincolnshire Partnership’s focus areas surrounding substance misuse are:

  • county lines
  • drug related deaths

We work in conjunction with partner agencies, to support those people within our communities who are affected by drug and alcohol misuse.

We aim to raise awareness of and access to services which help reduce, treat and educate people about drug and alcohol misuse, to help save and change lives.

The substance misuse treatment provider for Lincolnshire is We Are With You.

If you, or someone you know, is struggling with problematic drug and/or alcohol use, you can access their confidential services, for free.

Domestic homicide reviews

All deaths which may be a result of domestic violence or abuse require a domestic homicide review.

The Safer Lincolnshire Partnership must carry these out.

Their purpose is to ensure that agencies are responding to victims of domestic violence appropriately.

They are not inquiries into who is culpable. That is for the court or coroner to decide.

Find out more about domestic homicide reviews on GOV.uk.

You can read all our recently published reviews to see the outcomes.
