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

1. Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community

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 Christmas 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 are shopping or just out enjoying the Christmas festivities. 
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 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

HORSE WATCH IN OPERATION: This month we are distributing our new “Horse Watch In Operation” signs courtesy of East Riding of Yorkshire Council Safer Communities Team, thank you to Alan Brown(pictured) for his assistance. Working together to tackle 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. 

Rural Crime Partnership

In November, a Partnership meeting on Rural Crime chaired by Graham Stuart MP , with representatives from CLA Country Land & Business Association, NFU National Farmers Union, Humberside Police along with Holderness farmers and landowners was held.

Libby Bateman of CLA give a useful update on their work as a change of legislation is needed to tackle the problem of hare coursing.

Police Inspector for the East Coast Mr Beadman was on hand to answer questions on rural crime and updates from PC Josh Fawcett on actions taken by the Humberside Police Rural Task Force

Working together to tackle Rural 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 December these will include the 20mph limit through Wawne and Main Street Burstwick along with Church Lane & Benningholme Lane Skirlaugh.              

We are starting to reintroduce our Police surgeries, although still following government COVID guidelines to keep everyone safe; 

In December, The dates and locations are as follows:
Wednesday 1 Dec, 11am – 12pm    Aldbrough Youth Club    Police Surgery
Friday 3 Dec, 5pm – 7pm    Wawne Village Hall & Church of St Peter    Police Surgery
Saturday 4 Dec, 5pm – 7pm    Church Street, Aldbrough    Police Surgery
Monday 6 Dec, 3pm – 4pm    Skirlaugh School & Village walkabout     Police Surgery

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

“We Hope your holiday season is full of peace, joy and happiness." Happy Christmas from everyone at Humberside Police
