Our priorities this month are to reduce:
Residential Burglary OPERATION YELLOWFIN We are urging residents to consider the following when they See a Motorbike in their community: Road Legal? Number Plate? Wearing a Helmet? NO? Then make that CALL and help Police detect and Prevent CRIME! We urge Petrol Station Forecourts NOT to authorise fuel to anyone using an illegal or suspicious motorbike.
Rural Crime 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. Theft 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 .
PARENTS are being urged to ensure they are not obstructing roads or pavements around schools when they park.
The plea comes from Police Community Support Officer Darren Bainton, whose area includes Mid Holderness, following a rise in obstructive parking.
He said there had been an increase in reports of vehicles double parking, blocking the pavements and abandoning cars on the yellow zig-zag lines.
“None of the above is acceptable, and if you are found to be in contravention of any of these you could be handed a fixed penalty notice of £30,” he said.
Residents told their neighbourhood policing team that they felt parking outside Bilton primary school was dangerous, prompting a response from the community forum.
In a Facebook post on Friday, officers said: "This has been adopted by the police as a neighbourhood priority.
“We are very aware that parking outside our local schools has always been an issue raised by residents, and that the areas around our schools are perhaps not best suited to a high volume of cars to park.
“However we need your support urgently to ensure you are not obstructing roads or pavements around the schools.
“We are also looking to start our ‘junior safety officers’ project with the local primary schools.
“The junior officers will help us educate people who are parking dangerously and inappropriately.
Parking on the pavement may not sound like a major problem, but for parents with buggies, people using wheelchairs, people with visual impairments or older people who need support to walk, pavements blocked by parked cars can mean there is no way through without being forced to risk walking in the road which can seriously inconvenience the pedestrian and their safety.
Waiting restrictions indicated by yellow lines apply to the carriageway, pavement and verge/zigzags and are there for a purpose: Because of their size, children cannot see if the road is clear from behind parked cars. Drivers cannot see small children hidden by parked cars.
Over the week several checks of the location had been made by the Neighbourhood Police Officer and those drivers who had been found to be parking in a careless or dangerous manner have been spoken to and provided a letter containing information on safe parking and locations.
We have full support from Bilton Primary Staff and in cooperation with the Bilton Village Hall committee who have provided the use of their car park which is close to the school and has no main roads to cross. If you have to travel by car, Please use the Park’n’Stride at the Bilton Village Hall, Main Street, Bilton HU114AA it’s only a 300metre walk away and it saves traffic having to manoeuvre around the estate only to find there are no safe parking places near to the school.
We ask for all motorists not to park on the pavements; stop, park or set down and pick up passengers on School markings. We will be patrolling the area and any vehicles found causing an obstruction on the pavement will be issued with a fixed penalty ticket for that offence.
We seek parents full cooperation in this matter, working together to keep our neighbourhood safe for everyone.
