Local community urged to join in.
An event to help identify the issues affecting the East Marsh is being held today and members of the community are urged to come along.
The session being held between 9am and midday at Central Hall in Duncombe Street in the town will be attended by representatives from Humberside Police, North East Lincolnshire Council. Humberside Fire and Rescue Service and others.
It is part of a week of action being conducted this week as part of Operation Impact, a multi-agency approach to tackling some of the problems blighting communities across the area.
Fly tipping, arson, drug dealing, alcohol abuse, anti-social behaviour, littering, repeat offending, licensing are among the issues to be addressed.
Assistant Chief Constable Lee Freeman said: “Operation Impact is being launched to make a long term difference to communities across the force area where there are particularly high levels of crime, disorder and anti-social activity.
“Humberside Police will work side by side with the local authorities, other emergency services and voluntary groups to help improve the quality of life for the people living there.
“Over the coming months there will be weeks of action taking place under Operation Impact across the whole of northern Lincolnshire, Hull and East Yorkshire with the very first event focussing on the East Marsh area of Grimsby.”
He added: “In order for Operation Impact to be a success people living and working in the areas targeted need to talk to us and tell us what is happening, what matters to them and what we can do to help improve the area.
“I would urge everyone to take this opportunity to get on board and see what we can achieve if we all work together.”
The community engagement event will be held at Central Hall in Duncombe Street between 9am and midday on Monday September 21. Representatives from the agencies involved in Operation Impact will be in attendance to talk to residents.Leave a comment
