Latest news from the HQ Engagement Team 

Update April 2018


The adverse weather conditions across Lincolnshire caused chaos recently across our region.

The LincsAlert messaging system was used to contact our farming community direct with a plea for help.

The Force Control Room was immediately contacted by Farmers offering to help out in their own areas.

Many calls for concern was resolved much quicker than the police could have done using their own resources.

A show case example of the importance of the LincsAlert system and its registered members.


Calls to the Force Control Room (FCR)
We have updated our Force Control Rooms ability to acknowledge on an incident log that the information came from a member of LincsAlert or one of our watch members.

So far over the last year, we have had 43 incidents reported directly by our members.

Types of incident reported are

Concern for safety
Inconsiderate behaviour
Wildlife issues such as hare coursing
Vehicle nuisance

Lincolnshire Police relies on information being passed to us by members of the public, so please keep your calls coming, although it may be that your information towards crime is small, when we piece together information it gives us a much bigger picture of what is happening in our communities.

A simple example might be:

LincsAlert member sees a car moving suspiciously slowly down a street and takes the registration number and car make.

Later that night a house is burgled while the owners are absent.  No one sees or hears anything but when a LincsAlert message is issued regarding the burglary, the car registration is passed to us which points to a known serial burglar being in the area at that time.

Without that information being given, we may struggle to link persons to a crime scene without forensic evidence.

Solving crime is like a jigsaw puzzle, you piece all the pieces of information together to complete the crime details and hopefully find and convict the criminal!

Your assistance is really appreciated.
