The winner of the Lincolnshire Alert competition, which was organised by Lincolnshire Police and ran in the Leader, has been announced.
Les Viner, a director at Turnpike Medical Ltd in Louth, was presented with £20 worth of High Street vouchers by PC Rachel Dobson and PCSO Sally Read at Louth Police Station on Friday (April 4).
The Hallington resident thanked the team, and said that he will donate his prize to one of his patients at work.
PC Rachel Dobson, community beat manager in Louth, said: “We have had 150 extra people sign up to Lincs Alert since January, which is already more than the total number of people who signed up all last year.”
PCSO Sally Read added: “The Lincs Alert system has been effective, and we have located stolen property recovered.
“At one point a trailer and container tank were stolen, we sent out an alert that night, and the next day they were found in Brookenby.
“The new version of Lincs Alert lets you specify the alerts to your local area, rather than the whole of Lincolnshire.”
Lincolnshire Police are continuing to encourage residents to sign up to Lincolnshire Alert. Visit www.lincsalert.co.uk to sign up and find out more information.
