Helping you to report incidents or anti-social street activity easily.
In response to the Businesses concerns about the Street Drinking, Legal High Consumption, Begging, Rough Sleeping and Homelessness Lincoln BIG have put together a pack which will assist businesses in reporting any incidents of anti-social street activity and help the relevant agencies address the individuals most in need.
Lincoln BIG will keep a record of the incidents reported to them and also refer those incidents to the relevant agency if the business itself has not already done so.
It is worth remembering that there may be many complex issues and reasons surrounding a person’s circumstances and often there is no simple answer, so it may take time for the concerns of businesses to be addressed. If we are to make a difference a constant flow of information is required from the businesses.
Lincoln BIG will collate evidence and refer it to the relevant agencies but is not an enforcement or care agency so has no powers to directly influence any outcomes.
To make reporting to Lincoln BIG easier for the business you can use incident forms. Once a log is completed please detach the topcopy and send in the enclosed prepaid envelope retain the second copy for your records. There is also a guide for submitting reports on the Lincoln BIG website.
To report incidents to Lincoln BIG and to obtain incident forms, call Yvette Hall on 01522 842711, text 07901553428 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
