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. UPDATE: one report made of nuisance motorbikes during June in the Wawne area.
During Humbertalking in the Bilton area several vehicles found to had been squirted with ketchup which had occurred sometime overnight of Saturday 26 June 2021 into Sunday morning, the contents of a tin of beans had been thrown at the door of a residential property on Galfrid Road, Bilton. The owner has managed to clean it up without damage.
Local enquires have taken place and three work vans along with two cars parked on Galfrid Road were also squirted with what appears to by tomato ketchup, a lid of a squeezy sauce bottle was found next to one of the vehicles. 
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, during May two possible burglaries were reported but unable to establish how entry had been gained into the property. UPDATE: No residential burglaries reported during June
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 Trans Pennine 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

UPDATE: during June, Officers have conducted speed checks in Garton and Sproatley. A Check Your Speed reminder sign has been positioned on Lambwath Road, New Ellerby; further checks will be carried out in Wawne, Garton and Sproatley during July 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 Wawne that there is a 20mph limit
It is 20 for a reason, please respect it for the safety of ALL our children
