C / Sup. Kate Anderson, East Zone Commander said: ‘Lincolnshire is an incredibly safe county to live in and although we know it the Lincolnshire Police are not complacent and are committed to making the county the safest place to live. live, work and visit.

“Over the past year, we have worked tirelessly to reduce crime, and there were over 1,800 fewer crimes compared to the previous year.

“It means fewer victims and safer communities.

“Some of the biggest reductions are in burglaries and gun crimes, which we know are high priorities for our residents.

“It is fair to reflect the fact that there are different levels of crime in different areas and the types of crime also vary from place to place.

Nationally, urban areas may experience higher levels of retail crime, such as shoplifting, than more rural areas, which can translate into higher levels of crime. .

“We have dedicated neighborhood police officers who work with communities and partners to understand the root causes of crime and undertake problem-solving work to prevent further crime and anti-social behavior.

“We are grateful for the continued support of members of the public, partners, advisers, our staff and volunteers who continue to dedicate their time and effort to collectively reduce crime.

“It is by continuing to work with communities that we can build on the successes of the past year and continue to make Lincolnshire the safe county that it is.”
