About the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership
The Safer Lincolnshire Partnership (SLP) helps to improve community safety.
It aims to:
- reduce crime and disorder and increase the safety of individuals and communities across Lincolnshire
- ensure those living, working or visiting Lincolnshire feel safe and are equipped to cope with any hazards or threats they may encounter
- improve communication, coordination and cooperation between agencies allowing them to work together more efficiently and effectively
The work of the SLP involves tackling:
- anti-social behaviour
- reducing reoffending
- crime and disorder
- substance misuse
Its duties are to:
- set up protocols and systems for information sharing
- implement a plan to reduce offending and combat substance misuse
- engage and consult with communities and address their priorities
- hold one or more public meeting during each year
- commission domestic homicide reviews
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
- nuisance calls
- street drinking
- noise nuisance
- 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.
- Boston Borough Council
- City of Lincoln Council
- East Lindsey District Council
- North Kesteven District Council
- South Holland District Council
- South Kesteven District Council
- West Lindsey District Council
Report nuisance parking
If you are experiencing a problem in relation to parking you can report this to us.
Reducing offending in Lincolnshire is fundamental to our local communities and generates significant benefits because:
- Appropriate diversion away from the criminal justice system is recognised as a viable option in creating safer communities and fewer victims
- Effectively tackling offending reduces pressures on the resources of all of the key agencies working within the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership and wider health services
- Improving the life chances of individuals must be our aspiration, but in doing so where offending impacts upon children and families, we create improved outcomes for children and start to break the inter-generational cycle of offending
Around half of all crime is committed by people who have already been through the Criminal Justice System.
The purpose of the Reducing Reoffending Core Priority Group is to coordinate agencies in Lincolnshire to deliver the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership’s Strategy to reduce reoffending. This group meets on a quarterly basis and reports to the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership’s Strategic Board.
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.
Drugs and alcohol
It is the Safer Lincolnshire Partnership’s focus to reduce drug and alcohol related harm through a comprehensive package of prevention and treatment activity.
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 drug and alcohol 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.
To book a first appointment, enter your town and select your nearest service for support here.

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.
