From May 2013, the following changes were made to the crime categories:
I) The violent crime category was renamed "violence and sexual offences"
2) A new category for "bicycle theft" was created which previously fell within "other theft"
3) A new category for "theft from the person" was created which previously fell within "other theft"
4) Public disorder and weapons were then split into two new categories; "public order" and "possession of weapons"
5) Both "other firearms offences" and "other knives offences" which were in "other crime" were moved into "possession of weapons".

The Economic Policy Centre has made every effort in order to ensure that the data for UkCrimeStats is accurate and up to date. However, we are aware of certain deficiencies in this data which are beyond our control. That's because as a 3rd party developer, we do not collect the data, the Police do who then hand it over to another data company to release to 3rd party developers such as ourselves. We only download and analyse it so that you can use it. For full detail of these deficiencies, please read here.

Dealing with any offenders of Anti Social Behaviour quickly and robustly in an attempt to reduce the number of ASB incidents reported in our area and to assist victims in achieving a better quality of life.

Road Safety outside the Schools within our area.


We endeavour to deal with all reported incidents of Anti Social Behaviour in a professional and timely manner. The Team consider all the facts surrounding the report and deal with any offenders robustly to deter any further offences.
We plan to continue working with partner agencies in a joint approach to tackling ASB incidents in our area.

The Skegness Neighbourhood Policing Team are currently working on a joint agency Road Safety project to raise awareness of the dangers of parking inappropriately outside the Schools in our area. So far this includes working with Lincolnshire County Council Highways Department to deliver a Road Safety package to Children between the ages of 4 and 7. Including a letter to be sent home to parents outlining the dangers they cause to their own and other people’s children when parking inappropriately.
We are also asking for the assistance of the parking attendants to enforce any parking restrictions in these areas.
Lincolnshire County Council Highways Dept are currently in the consultation phase of getting the restrictions changed and speed humps installed in the area of the Skegness Infant and Junior Academies. The plans of which can be viewed by members of the public in Skegness Library.

The reporting period between April 2013 and December 2013 has seen encouraging reductions in crime. Overall recorded crime for this period is down by 3% with 853 fewer crimes.

Skegness consists of privately owned dwellings; (usually on the periphery) large houses now operated as HMO’s; private rented accommodation; social housing owned by Linx and Longhurst Housing plus approximately 5,000 caravans and permanent park homes.

Most of the population consists of white British or Northern European and are largely elderly. There are 6 schools and the same number of warden controlled sheltered accommodation. There is one Salvation Army operated centre for men and women who are intentionally or unintentionally homeless.

There are no large developments to speak of but there is one Industrial estate encompassing a business centre and college with a large sports centre and playing fields that is being developed. The biggest factory (Minebear) closed its doors several years ago and the Town Centre has seen the loss of several large shops including M+S.

Employment is not only largely seasonal but also mainly unskilled with the largest employers being the leisure and tourist industry and agricultural gang labouring. Butlins is not classed as Skegness but it does employ a large proportion of Eastern Europeans (mainly Polish, Latvian etc)

The only environmental issue is the risk of flooding if sea levels rise, due to the level of the land adjacent to the sea.
