Our priorities this month are to reduce:
Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community
We have recently seen an increase in the number of anti-social behaviour reports which has had a detrimental impact on people who live and work here in our District.
The Holderness Neighbourhood Policing Team works with our key partners and the community to reduce anti-social behaviour and the anti-social use of motor vehicles. We provide proactive responses to reports of anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhood Area and are constantly reviewing our patrol strategy to address this. We are working hard with partners to address this and ensure our market towns and rural communities are a safe place to live and work.
Reduce rural crime
As with all rural locations, the Holderness area suffer with beauty spot theft and theft of farming machinery and vehicles.
Throughout this year we have worked with volunteers on the Rural Watches across Holderness to deter rural criminality. In addition we will utilise all the available technology, crime prevention techniques and assistance from the Rural Crime Team to deter and detect crime. In addition to local officers our patrols are routinely bolstered by specialist Officers from our Roads Policing, and Operations department.
Road Safety
As with most other areas, road safety is something in which we can improve upon in our District.
We hold regular proactive road safety campaigns with the Highways Authority which include speed enforcement in hot spot locations.
With Holderness children set to return to school next week, the Police team welcomes you all back and has issued some road safety tips for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers.
Pedestrian safety
Take time to check out the route to school including any potential hazard points along the way. Look for the safest crossing places. If your child is moving up to a new school, plan the journey and allow plenty of time.
Don’t be distracted by use of devices, particularly when crossing the road. Children are advised to wear bright clothing, and preferably reflective or fluorescent items.
Regular walking to school is a fantastic way for children and adults to stay active.
Cycling to school
Now is a good time to make sure your child’s bicycle is in good working order – and wearing an approved cycle helmet is recommended. Lights may also be needed during the darker months.
School bus advice
Children are advised to arrive at the bus stop five minutes early. When getting off the bus, they should wait until it moves off and the road is clear in both directions before crossing the road.
Take your time and be patient
The school year comes with a substantial increase in morning and evening traffic. Drivers should allow an extra 10 or 15 minutes for their morning commute. The extra time will not only reduce stress but help keep our roads safer.
Drivers are less likely to speed or engage in other dangerous driving habits when they aren’t running late. It will also provide time to park well away from the school, helping reduce congestion outside school and give children the benefit of a short walk.
Slow down and be alert
Drivers should watch for children walking in the road, especially if there are no pavements in the neighbourhood. Watch for children playing and gathering near bus stops. Children arriving late for the bus may dart into the street without looking for traffic.
How you can help
Your local Neighbourhood Policing Team appreciates the importance of being in the right place, at the right time, for the right reasons to reassure the public, improve public confidence and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the area in which we all live and work.
We encourage all residents to call and report any issues where they live so that we can deal with any issues and also step up our patrols in the area.
If you feel that there are other issues affecting you or your local community that should be given priority, please inform your local councillors or your Neighbourhood Policing Team.
The number to call for non-emergency issues is 101
