The local policing team for Yarborough ward will be using Littlecoates Community Centre as their hub.
Following conversations between ward councillors and the policing team, North East Lincolnshire Council is pleased to announce the news.
Yarborough ward councillor, Cllr Martyn Sandford, has worked to make this happen. “I have been working hard with Yarborough policing team for the past 12 months to get a policing hub at Littlecoates Community Centre as I think it will benefit the area,” he said.
“Having this hub will reassure residents in the area that they feel safe and will give them a chance to see the policing team for advice on crime prevention, or if residents need to have a chat in a confidential and informal way regarding concerns that they may have.”
Cllr Philip Jackson, Leader of North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “I am really pleased to see this opportunity taken and for the local policing team to be able to use Littlecoates Community Centre as their hub. Cllr Sandford has worked hard to put this together and I’m delighted this has come to fruition.”
Neighbourhood Policing Inspector Tom Stevens added: “We are pleased to have worked with our partners at North East Lincolnshire Council to secure this location.
“It is important that my officers are in the right areas in the community and are accessible, and this facility will allow us to connect better with the residents of the Little Coates and Laceby Road area.
“Our officers will be at the hub on an advertised basis, and I would encourage any local residents to go down to either discuss any concerns you have in the area, or to seek advice on police-related matters.
“Please speak with us and let us know what is affecting you in your area. Myself and my teams want to know about the issues that impact your community, and we are guided by the information you provide.
“You can find out when officers will be there via our social media accounts or on the Yarborough team page of our website.”
