Dedicated police patrols to minimise student impact on community
Throughout Freshers’ Week Lincoln police officers will be carrying out dedicated patrols in student residential areas to minimise the impact on the local community and to ensure the safety of students.
Freshers’ Week starts on Sunday September 22 and officers will be on hand at the Engine Shed on Tuesday September 24 to give out welcome packs and offer advice to the students.
Local beat manager Luke Casey said: “It’s really important for us to get to know local students for a number of reasons. We want to welcome them to the city and make sure they know who to get in touch with if they need help with various problems.
“Beyond that we also want to get across the importance of respecting local communities in terms of noise and antisocial behaviour. We want students to have a great time in Lincoln, but to also think about people trying to sleep at night when they are coming home from pubs and clubs.

“We also like to give them crime prevention advice in a number of areas.
“Multiple occupancy student houses do get targeted by burglars who take advantage of the likelihood of valuable laptops in ground-floor bedrooms and the fact that people often leave doors and windows unlocked as they think someone else in the house will take care of it. We offer advice about closing the curtains on ground-floor windows and not leaving valuables on display - along with the obvious messages on locking up properly.
“Students often also fall foul of the bicycle theft issues we have around the city, so we’ll be giving advice about using good quality D-locks and information on how to get your bike fitted with an Immobitag security device.
“Walking home alone at night drunk leaves people particularly vulnerable to attack we’ll be explaining those dangers and giving personal safety tips."
