Police are tomorrow (Tuesday) holding a drop-in to meet residents in Crowland following a spate of anti-social incidents and hate crimes.

Community policing inspector Gareth Boxall says there has been a significant decrease in incidents reported but police are continuing to support victims and are continuing their increased patrols.

Eleven days ago, Insp Boxall spoke out about “shocking” youth-related anti-social behaviour, as police investigated hate crimes against the elderly and disabled, and warned parents they should know where their “teenage children are and what they are doing”.

Incidents have included 20 cars being trashed as well as one home being targeted in a 40-ninute barrage as rocks were thrown.

Tomorrow’s drop-in runs from midday-6pm at the Parish Rooms, in Church Street, so residents can raise concerns face-to-face with officers and get advice on issues like scam awareness and general crime prevention.

Insp Boxall said: “Since last week, we have had a significant decrease in the number of incidents reported. We are continuing to support the victims and continuing our increased patrols in the area and it’s really important that we still work with South Holland District Council and other partners to address the causes of all that anti-social behaviour (ASB). We don’t want to return to the levels of ASB that we had.”
