Partnership information report
If you have information about a person at risk, please complete a Partnership Information Report. This is known locally as Operation Insignia.
It is a multi-agency system of sharing information with Lincolnshire Police. It helps to support vulnerable children and adults.
Your information will help form a picture around their situation. It will also allow police to take further action in investigating an issue.
This could include but is not limited to information that is indicating:
- child exploitation (criminal and sexual)
- human trafficking
- modern slavery
- county lines
- knife crime
Please note: this form is for low-level information only, to enable Lincolnshire Police to build a picture on concerns. It is in no way a method to report crimes. The right methods are: ringing 101 or 999, or using the online crime reporting system.
The report should be for matters at a lower level than you would notify the Police by ringing 999 or 101, but still important to share.
It is not to answer current safeguarding concerns or matters of urgency, and the form is not a means to ensure safeguarding actions.
If it is about significant harm to a child or vulnerable adult, normal safeguarding procedures apply.
Once received Lincolnshire Police will grade the information based on reliability, accuracy and origin.
Never assume someone else has passed on the information you have.
If you have any queries about completing the form, contact [email protected].
