Humbertalking has set our priorities, this month we are to:
1.        Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community
Residents in both Wawne and Aldbrough along with local parish meetings have raised issues about anti-social behaviour around nuisance motorbikes especially off road illegal bikes been ridden on public areas in the villages. UPDATE: Hull OP YELLOWFIN patrols made aware of issue around the Wawne area and proactively conducted patrols – no further reports received. A motorcross bike owner in Aldbrough was spoken to and warning issued after information received, no further incidents were reported

Thank you to all for making Halloween safe for all. This period is always one of our busiest, and understandably this year we expect it to be busier than last, due to more people being out and about. However, we would like to offer reassurance to those who are looking to enjoy Bonfire Night or those that prefer not to, and a stark reminder to those intent of causing harm or committing offences, that we are out in force and ready to act against anyone spoiling others’ fun.
You will see a clear police presence on patrol in and around your neighbourhood over this period. We really want everyone to enjoy themselves, but we will be there to ensure we deal with any incidents quickly.
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
As the nights get darker and longer, it is usual for us to see crimes such as burglary and theft rise, particularly if houses and vehicles are unattended whilst you gathering at firework displays.
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 the autumn and winter months, 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.
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 November these will include the 20mph limit through Wawne and Main Street Burstwick along with Benningholme Lane Skirlaugh.                    
As children returned to school in after the half term holiday and earlier dark nights, 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 are starting to reintroduce our Police surgeries, although still following government COVID guidelines to keep everyone safe;

In November, The dates and locations are as follows:
DATE                                            LOCATION                        ACTIVITY
