Humbertalking has set our priorities, this month we are to:
1.            Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community
Community and Policing groups and local parish meetings have raised issues about anti-social behaviour. Anti-social behaviour involving nuisance motor bikes along the river bank near Wawne and across farm land in the Swine and Benningholme area has seen an increase over the month.
During Humbertalking in the Wawne area concerns were raised that vehicles visiting the parking area at the end of Greens Lane maybe involved in drug activity, Officers will be checking the location under Op Yellowfin
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
2.            Preventing Residential Burglary
Unfortunately the month of March had seen the first reports for several months that three households had been targeted by burglars, UPDATE: during April no further burglaries were reported
Please check your security & report suspicious activity to the Police
During this month members of the Holderness Policing Team will continue be out and about providing residents with advice on home security.
3.            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 although this season draws to a welcomed end, there has been an increase in anti-social use of illegal motorcycles riding across our countryside and farming fields.
We have taken to our cycles and are Engaging with dog walkers, cyclists, horse riders & people out walking following the recent reports of off roads motorbikes causing a nuisance along the Rail Trail Hedon to Burstwick and the Transpennine Trail across our ward #YouSaidWeDid #InYourCommunity #ThereForYou

OPERATION GALILEO & OPERATION YELLOWFIN - 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.            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 have been raised, via Humbertalking, as a community concern for speeding vehicles.
UPDATE: during April, Officers have conducted speed checks in Wyton along with enforcement to those found exceeding the limit. A Check Your Speed reminder sign has been positioned on Preston Lane; further checks will be carried out along with Holmes Lane, Bilton and New Ellerby during May 2021.
With the return of all children to our primary schools, the Community Team will be conducting patrols around the school area make sure that the roads are safe for every one especial for our young members outside the schools gates.
UPDATE: Officers are reminding motorists driving through Burstwick that there is a 20mph limit during school open/closing times, this is highlighted with flashing amber signs as you approach the school; 20 when amber lights flash, please respect it for the safety of ALL our children
Catalytic Converter theft                   
To reduce the risk of having your catalytic converter stolen, you should:
Park your car in a locked garage where possible, but if this isn’t an option, then park it in a well-lit and well-populated area
Park close to fences, walls or a kerb with the exhaust being closest to the fence, wall or kerb to make the theft more difficult
Avoid parking your vehicle half on the pavement and half on the road, as this may make it easier for thieves to access the catalytic converter
If there is a fleet of vehicles, park the low clearance vehicles to block the high clearance vehicles. This will obstruct access underneath
If parking in a public car park, consider parking alongside other cars and facing you bonnet towards the wall if possible. With the catalytic converter positioned at the front of your vehicle, this will make it harder for thieves to get close enough to steal it
For thefts occurring on driveways, consider the use of a Secured by Design (SBD) approved driveway alarm and sensor. This may assist in alerting you of a potential intruder entering your driveway or garden
If your catalytic converter is bolted on, you can ask for your local garage to weld the bolts to make it more difficult to remove.
Alternatively, you can mark your catalytic converter. Please ensure any property marking is Secured by Design (SBD) approved
If you see someone acting suspiciously under a vehicle, report it to the Police. Obtain as much information as possible, including any vehicle registrations
