Humbertalking has set our priorities, this month we are to:

1. Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community
Residents in the Bilton Community and local parish meetings have raised issues about anti-social behaviour around Highfield Crescent following reports of a group of youths drinking alcohol and discarding litter in the fields to the rear of the Primary School
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 across the area

Burglars are often opportunistic thieves who prey on houses, garages, sheds and outbuildings. 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
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. Operation GALILEO has restarted for the season. 

There is an ARSON Alert text service by HUMBERSIDE FIRE & RESCUE for information regarding deliberate fires in your area especially around this time of year with haystacks fires; For further advice call 0300 303 8242


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; in October these will include Holmes Lane Bilton, the 20mph limit through Wawne and Main Street Burstwick.                     
As children returned to school in September, the Neighbourhood Police Teams urges all to ensure our roads are safe places for children especially around the school         
Community Officers have invited families to “rethink how they travel” encouraging all to walk and cycle where possible, especially for families that live within a mile of their school. 

If necessary to drive, park safely and where possible consider parking further away and walking the last five minutes of the journey. This will help reduce congestion and pollution around the school gates and allow families to maintain social distancing.

Throughout the winter months, Community Police Officers will be visiting Schools during open/closing times to ensure motorists are parking in a legal and safe manner.


We have reintroduced our Police surgeries, although still following government COVID guidelines to keep everyone safe; 

In October, The dates and locations are as follows:

Wednesday 6th October 2:30pm in the meeting room at Bilton Village Hall, Main Road
Thursday 14th October 9am in the meeting room at Skirlaugh Village Hall 
Friday 15th October 9am Wawne Village walk about, Wawne Village Hall, Main St Wawne
Tuesday 19th October 3:30pm outside Burstwick Primary School, Main Street, Burstwick
Wednesday 20th October 9am outside Aldbrough Primary School, Headlands Road, Aldbrough

Activities around the villages will continue soon as groups are waiting until restrictions have been fully lifted
