Stop and Search
All of us want to live in a community that is safe, tolerant and free from crime. To make sure this happens, the police sometimes have to stop people and ask them to account for their actions or presence in an area. Sometimes the police may also need to carry out a search of a person’s clothes or property.
This section aims to help you understand stop and search procedures, the type of behaviour you should expect from the police and in return, what the police expect from you. Find out more [Link]

Information about Humberside Police partnership with BoingUK
The public increasingly dials 999 or calls police main switchboards for much more than just straightforward emergencies. Calls can relate to everything from lost keys, burst pipes, broken or unsecured windows and locks, to cats up trees and even swarming bees. While most of these callers are genuinely looking for assistance, they may have called the police when they really need to speak to another agency.
