Humbertalking has set our priorities, this month we are to:
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 community.
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 theft of farming machinery and vehicles along with poaching activity like hare coursing
OPERATION GALILEO - 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.
4/10/20 Three men were interviewed at the roadside in relation to reports of hare coursing on land near Burton Pidsea/Roos. A Traffic Offence Report ticket issued to the driver for an unsafe vehicle. All three received a Section 35 Dispersal Order directing them to leave the East Riding County.
Four males stopped and interviewed for poaching offences in the area of Sunk Island
Five men were interviewed and summoned to court for poaching offences in the Wetwang area and directed to leave the County of East Riding under the Section 35 of the Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014
18/10/20 Two men were interviewed at the roadside in relation to reports of hare coursing on land around South East Holderness. A Section 59 order was issued to the driver of a silver VW Golf Estate for driving on land contrary to section 34 of the Road Traffic Act. Three lurcher type dogs were checked for microchips and reported to the council for a follow up action.
Four men from County Durham were interviewed for poaching offences in the Burton Agnes area and directed to leave the County of East Riding under the Section 35 of the Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, the men were occupants of a black VW Passat which was previously sighted in the Garton area on 4/10/20
26/10/20 A Vehicle used in hare coursing was seized following incidents in Patrington and Routh area by Humberside Police Officers Under Section 59 of the Road Traffic Act.
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.
Preventing Residential Burglary
With the clocks put back an hour at the end of last month, police in Holderness are encouraging residents to make sure they don’t ‘fall back’ with their home security too.
“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.
During this month members of the Holderness Policing Team will continue be out and about providing residents and visitors with advice on home security.
