Your experiences wanted. Do you remember Cleethorpes policing from the past?

Are you a serving Police officer or ex-Police officer who has experience or memories of policing in Cleethorpes over the decades? If so, or if you know someone like this, then we’d really like to hear from you to help out on our research into “Cleethorpes Community Cops”.

This VANEL project is led by our Blue Lights Brigade team and is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. We want to learn about the history of Policing across Cleethorpes from the beginning of time up until the past few decades.

Did you serve in Cleethorpes? Have you been stationed in the Police Station in Cleethorpes? Have you got memorabilia from the time, experiences or anecdotes to share?

If so, please get in touch. Speak to Steve Lynn who himself is ex-Police and familiar with the area and is leading on this research project along with other partners and volunteers. Contact Steve at VANEL via 01472 231123 or
