Lincolnshire Police will shortly be changing from its current three Division structure to new Neighbourhood Policing areas that reflect the Local Authorities. Although this restructure will not be complete until June, certain changes within the East Lindsey area have already taken place in preparation.
The Spilsby Neighbourhood Policing Team has acquired the villages of Spilsby and Stickney that were formerly looked after by Boston’s North Rural team and they will also be looking after Old Bolingbroke which previously fell within Horncastle’s boundary. Wainfleet and Burgh Le Marsh will no longer be part of the Spilsby Team and, instead, will form part of the East Lindsey Coastal area that includes Skegness and Ingoldmells.
In order for the residents of Sibsey, Stickney and Old Bolingbroke to get to know their new team, the Mobile Police Station will be visiting the three villages on Saturday 26 March with Comunity Beat Manager, PC Matt Dickinson and PCSOs, Nigel Miller and Phil Pollard, on board.
PC Dickinson, said, “I’m really looking forward to introducing myself and my two PCSOs to these new communities and getting to know the local people and businesses. I would encourage all the residents to come along and meet us in person when we visit on Saturday and let us know what they expect from Lincolnshire Police in respect of their local policing”.
The Mobile Police Station will be visiting the three villages at the following times:
Sibsey: 10am until midday
Stickney: 1pm to 3pm
Old Bolingbroke: 3.30pm to 4.30pm
