Residents in the Bilton Community and local parish meetings have raised issues about anti-social behaviour around Galfrid Road following reports of a group of youths climbing over vehicles and squirting liquids over cars, several wing mirrors had also been damaged.
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, as mentioned in the crime updates, Officers are investigating into a number of burglaries and thefts from vehicles which is believed to have occurred overnight Friday 2 July  and Saturday 3 July 2021 around the new development area of  Skirlaugh Village.
Burglars are often opportunistic thieves who prey on houses and flats. They seek out any opening that they can take advantage of, specifically doors and windows that are left open or unlocked or are easy to force. Please follow a security routine and check windows, doors and vehicles are secure before settling down for the evening. Visit our website for further advice Please continue to report suspicious activity to the Police on 101 and in the event of an emergency – call 999
UPDATE: a 27year old Hull man has been charged to court for the following offences
•             x2 theft from Motor vehicles
•             x3 Vehicle interferences
•             x2 attempt Burglaries
•             x4 Burglaries other than in dwellings
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.
UPDATE:   Beverley and Holderness MP Graham Stuart recently met Holderness Farm Watch members along with Humberside Police and the newly formed Rural Task Force at Lelley Barns to congratulate them on the progress they have both made in tackling rural crime. This event was the first time that members of the rural community group were able to share their concerns with the unit in person since its formation in February.
Farm Watch members also had the opportunity to discuss concerns to the area’s new Police Inspector, Derek Hussain
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.
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                               
Main Road, Sproatley and Holmes Lane, Bilton has, via Humbertalking, as a community concern for speeding vehicles and parish council have reported a concern of high numbers of motorbikes using the B1242 Aldbrough, Garton and Roos on a Thursday night and most Sundays
UPDATE: during July, Officers have conducted speed checks in Garton and Bilton, unfortunately no further checks were made in Sproatley as road surface redressing was in operation with a recommended 20mph skid risk warning.
“A Check Your Speed” reminder sign has been positioned on Holmes Lane Bilton; further checks will be carried out in Bilton, Garton and Sproatley during the summer months.
We are starting to reintroduce our Police surgeries, although still following government COVID guidelines to keep everyone safe;
