Burglary reports - we are pleased to report that no burglaries were reported during October.
With the clocks having been put back an hour, police in Holderness are encouraging residents to make sure they don’t ‘fall back’ with their home security too. Earlier this week members of the Mid Holderness Policing Team were out and about providing residents and visitors with advice on home security.
“Darker nights provide thieves with an opportunity to work with less chance of being discovered.
“There are some simple precautions we can all take to reduce the chance of us falling victim to criminals.”
To keep your home safe after dark:
- Use timer switches on lights to make it look as if your home is occupied.
- Ensure all doors and windows are secure when you leave and when you go to bed.
- If possible use security lighting at the front and back of your property.
- Make sure all garden tools and ladders are locked away when not being used.
- Use a good quality lock on any garden sheds and outhouses.
- Make a note of all makes, models and serial numbers of expensive items in your home.
- Create a FREE and secure inventory of all your personal property at www.immobilise.com
- If you notice anything suspicious in your neighbourhood report it on 101.
Thefts – three thefts reported, two of these are believed to be thefts of property taken by visitors to the victims address, £170 of cash taken from a bedroom on back lane Burstwick and a mobile phone taken from an address in Elstronwick. A trail camera was also stolen from a wooden post in a corner of a field on Hariff Lane, Burstwick.
We have continuously patrolled Churches and heritage sites across Holderness this month after the increased reports in September of theft of lead from church roofs, we are pleased to report no further thefts were reported to the police and we will continue to patrol these historic community building with the assistance from the local residents. We continue to appeal for anyone who has any information about these recent thefts to contact us so that we can identify those responsible and bring them to justice. We ask for the communities in towns and villages across the East Riding to be extra vigilant and to keep an eye out for anyone acting suspiciously. If you do see something call us immediately on 999 so that we can respond and catch them in the act.
Damage – three damage reports; a road sign was damaged on Fitling Road, Humbeton on 1st October, someone had spray painted the word “TOXIC” over the sign. A vehicle had scratches caused to the paintwork whilst parked on Glebelands, Burton Pidsea on 16th October. An outer pane of glass to a door on Main Road, Skirlaugh was covering in spray paint on 21st October.
Our priorities this month are to reduce:
Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) in general
ASB continues around the Bilton area.
With darker nights setting in, the activities and festivities this usually brings, we are experiencing an increase in groups of youth congregating around the play park area which can be intimidating to passers-by, a number of small fires had been lit in fields nearby and some fencing has recently been damaged around the playpark.
The trend generally at this time of year are towards higher value thefts from farms and rural businesses due to staff spending many hours in fields at harvest.
Officers will be conducting drop-ins to farms and businesses this month to offer advice on target hardening their assets as part of tackling rural crime.
Poaching season is upon us and hare coursing activity usually increases over the autumn months, Wildlife Officers will make rural patrols under OPERATION GALILEO to tackle and disrupt offenders involved in this activity.
FLY TIPPING is still a focus especially around the Wawne to Ellerby areas, officers are still working alongside the East Riding Council Environmental teams to prevent tipping and gather evidence to support action against the culprits.
We continue to patrol in a High Visibility manner to deter any crime and provide support and reassurance to the public.
An important source of information on those people are that are involved in either stealing or selling on the stolen goods comes from the public. Please contact us on 101 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you know who is responsible.
Please report any suspicious behaviour that you feel may be connected to rural crime
