The system which currently has 134 members is designed to encourage people who live and work in local communities in North Lincolnshire to be vigilant against crime. It allows members and police to share live time information and intelligence.
Increasingly rural areas in the county are being visited by criminals looking for opportunities to commit crime. In the past rural communities had little crime but now that the majority of criminals have access to vehicles more remote locations have become accessible. By working together with police and partners we strongly believe that we can prevent many crimes happening in the first place which in turn will make rural communities safer and better places to live and work.
Local farmers are increasingly seeing incidents of hare coursing and poaching. In addition to the obvious wildlife crimes being committed, many of the offenders have caused damage to crops with their vehicles and made threats to local people. Many of these people also have links to other forms of criminality such as theft. Many rural premises have experienced theft of plant and farm equipment not to mention scrap and diesel.
Our scheme works by allowing the members to both send and receive live time text alerts about any suspicious activity to all other members in the network affording them the knowledge to prevent further incident at their own property. We are collectively 134 pairs of eyes and ears on the look out for suspicious incidents.
In the ten months since the scheme started over 200 alerts have been made.
As a result of these alerts there have been a number of positive results-
Police recovered a trailer in the belief that it was stolen. They were however unable to establish who the trailer belonged to from the markings on it. A text alert was made about the seizure as a result of which one member who was aware of a trailer that had been stolen advised the loser of the find which enabled police to reunite the trailer with its owner.
Police received a report of poachers and were searching for a vehicle. A country watch member sighted the vehicle and sent an alert which resulted in the police locating it. In May 2012 5 men who were located as a result of this alert appeared in court and were each found guilty of hunting offences.
Country watch is now looking to increase its membership in North Lincolnshire. In addition to live time text alerts members also receive a regular newsletter which includes crime prevention advice and an overview of rural crime.
The scheme is non profit making and entirely self funding. Membership which includes text alerts to one mobile phone costs £20 per year.

There is an ongoing issue with vandalism of the playground in Silver Street.
Ultimately this may result in injuries to young children when playground equipment is affected.
Putting the damage right costs your parish council many hundreds of pounds per year.
This money comes from your council tax and means that we can’t spend money where it’s really needed – improving the village.
We need your help – If you see vandalism occurring please report it to the police on 101. If you wish to report damage to the playground please contact the Parish Clerk on 07788 789 403.
101 is now the only number to call when you want to get through to your local police when it’s less urgent than 999.
This change is part of a national programme to make it easier for you to contact them. 101 should be used for non-emergencies such as:
- reportinga crime
- contacting local officers
- getting crime prevention advice
- making us aware of policing issues in your local area
- making an appointment with a police officer
- for any other non-emergency
