Fear of crime down

LESS people think that anti-social behaviour is a big problem in East Lindsey – that’s one of the key findings from a survey carried out by the East Lindsey Community Safety Partnership.

The survey, which covered East Lindsey and Boston borough, had responses from 586 people – up 88 per cent on the survey carried out in 2010.

The feedback from those responding to the survey identified that anti-social behaviour, crime prevention and burglary reduction should be key priorities for the Community Safety Partnership for 2012/13.

Coun Sandra Harrison, portfolio holder for community safety, said “It’s clear we still have a lot of work to do and the feedback to this consultation will help us plan how we move forwards and address the issues of concern for local people.
