Humbertalking has set our priorities, this month we are to:
Reduce rural crime
Preventing Residential Burglary
Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community
Road Safety
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.
UPDATE :- Log 592 of 18/02/21 3 men enter land without permission and in possession of 3 dogs and pursue wild mammals(deer and hares) across fields in the Humbleton and Sproatley area, with the assistance from the Police Helicopter, these men were located.
Thank you to the farm watch members who came out to assist the officers. The Rural Task Force will be following up this incident and ensure a full investigation is completed in relation to Section 1 of The Hunting Act and other offences.
Thanks once again. The assistance we receive from Farmwatch members is invaluable
Preventing Residential Burglary
During this month members of the Holderness Policing Team will continue be out and about providing residents with advice on home security.
At this time of year when spring arrives and the clocks go forward, Burglaries of sheds and garages usually start growing! The police together with Neighbourhood Watch Groups are asking for your help. The value of property in sheds and garages is more than people think. Thieves are targeting them for power tools, cycle and sports equipment. Hand tools are stolen and used to break into homes. So let’s weed out these thieves by getting some sheducation!
Secure the access to your shed or garage by locking gates and using thorny bushes
Have you visibly marked the contents of your shed? Note of serial numbers, take photos
External security lights which are activated by movement are a useful deterrent.
Doors of sheds require attention. Use strong hasp/staples and close shackled padlocks.
Use coach bolts or non-return screws to secure door hinges.
Chain cycles, mowers, ladders and tools to a strong anchorage point.
Alarms for sheds and garages are available for under £20 at most DIY stores
Together we’ll crack crime. Join a home watch scheme.
Exactly what insurance cover do you have? Check that your household policy covers you for theft from your garden and outbuildings.
Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the 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.
Road Safety
As with most other areas, road safety is something in which we can improve upon in our rural communities.
We hold regular proactive road safety campaigns with the Highways Authority which include speed enforcement in hot spot locations                               
MARCH 2021 – B1239 Preston Road. Bilton and B1238 Main Road, Wyton has been raised as a community corn for speeding vehicles through HUMBERTALKING
Lambing Season is here! That means keep your dog on its lead!
Walkers please keep your dogs on leads as the lambing season has arrived. People like to take their dog into the countryside and a lot of our area is grazed by sheep so there is a chance you will come across some when out with your dog.

It is every dog's instinct to chase, even if obedient and good. Chasing by dogs can do serious damage to sheep and lambs, even if the dog doesn’t catch them.

Officers are reminding residents in our area that it is an offence to allow a dog to worry sheep - this includes attacking or chasing.

Among the worries for farmers is the stress from being chased can cause sheep to die, pregnant ewes can miscarry and serious injury can be caused while trying to escape. Dog bites can lead to the death of livestock of cause various expensive complications and lambs can be 'mis-mothered', resulting in them dying from starvation or hypothermia.

If a farmer reports a dog is worrying or attacking their livestock, they have the power to protect them by all reasonable measures including shooting but must in such circumstances;

*Warn the owner (if known) of their responsibilities and inform the owner of their intentions.

*Notify the police that they have carried out such action

*If having shot the dog they must not dispose of the dog without notifying the local authority.

*If the farmer is able to capture the dog, then they must notify the police.

*If the dog’s owner is known, they may be liable for any injuries, veterinary fees or loss of earnings due to the damaged state of their livestock/cattle.

*The dog’s owner is also liable for the lack of control of such dog or dogs and the farmer can take out a civil trespass prosecution if so desires
February witnessed an increase in Fly Tipping
Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of household or commercial waste on land which has no licence to accept waste, such as on a roadside or in a field. It currently costs the council around £350,000 to clear up fly-tipped waste from the roadside each year.
PCSO Darren Bainton from the Rural Community Police team said "Incidents like this generate much anger in our rural Community. I find it utterly deplorable that a small minority of people consider it is acceptable to dump rubbish and waste in our wonderful countryside.
“Offenders show a total disregard to our environment, our residents and to those having to clear it up, especially not knowing what hazards may lie within.
“It either falls upon us all, or just an innocent landowner to foot the bill for each occurrence.
“I appeal for anyone who recognises the source of the waste in this incident to please let us know by calling 101 with log number 104 of 26/2/21 or report via the East Riding of Yorkshire Council website

 Tips for using a waste carrier to dispose of your waste:
Use the S.C.R.A.P code when arranging for someone to collect waste from your home:
Suspect – beware of rogue waste carriers. Reputable companies do not usually make direct approaches. If in any doubt, do not allow them to take your waste.
Check – ask for their waste carrier registration details, and verify them either by checking the online register or by calling (03708) 506 506. Note down the registration number of the vehicle used to take your waste away, just in case.
Refuse – refuse unsolicited offers to have any rubbish taken away. Always carry out your own research and choose who you wish to approach.
Ask – always ask what exactly is going to happen to your rubbish and seek evidence that it is going to be disposed of appropriately. A legitimate, professional waste carrier who wants your business should not object to being asked reasonable questions.
Paperwork – make sure you get a proper receipt containing the written information for your waste. This should include what has been removed and where it will be going. Make sure the company or tradesperson’s details are included.
