38 CRIME RESILIENCE IN NORTH LINCOLNSHIRE FOLLOWING THE CLOSURE OF SCUNTHORPE CUSTODY SUITE - The Chairman informed the Panel that Councillors Mitchell, Evison and Ali visited the new South Humber custody suite on 22 January 2020. Councillors were shown around the facility by Chief Superintendent Wildbore and Chief Inspector Maultby. Attendees were shown CCTV footage of how a visitor to the custody suite was processed, before viewing performance data of both the former Scunthorpe custody suite and South Humber custody suite.

On conclusion of the site visit, the attendees agreed that consideration of the crime resilience in North Lincolnshire following the closure of Scunthorpe custody suite be deferred and re-considered at a later date.
