    Theft of and from Motor vehicles

    Car crime makes up to 20% of all recorded crimes in England and Wales. Car crime is distressing and annoying as it can cause a lot of inconvenience waiting for repairs or your insurer to pay. That is why security features of your car should be as important as any other feature. A lot of vehicle crime results from criminals seeing opportunities and taking them.
    To make your vehicle secure:

    a. Keep your valuables and possessions safe, don’t leave anything on display and take everything with you when you leave the vehicle.
    b. Invest in a good security device, immobilisers and steering locks prevent the vehicle being driven away, locking wheel nuts prevent your wheels from being stolen. A professionally fitted alarm is also a good preventative initiative.
    c. Thieves always like to steal from vehicles parked in places where they run the least risk of being seen. If you have to leave your vehicle parked in the open make sure it is locked and secure and left in a well lit and open to view.

    Fuel theft is on the increase. Farm and commercial vehicles are being increasingly targeted, often due to the remote location they are kept in.

    Your local Neighbourhood policing team are happy to offer you advice on vehicle security. For farmers and landowners the scheme “Farm Watch” has been set up, details can be obtained from Driffield Police Station.

    Shop Theft

    Shop watch, a scheme evolved to identify shop thieves and alert shop owners, has been very successful in Driffield Town Centre. It has lead to prosecutions of shop thieves and results in them being banned from shops. Shop owners are to be commended for working with the Driffield Neighbourhood Team and making this scheme successful.

    DRIFFIELD RANKED SAFEST PLACE TO LIVE IN THE UK

    Stop Burglars Coming to My Town

    We did

    ITS OFFICIALDRIFFIELD IS ONE OF THE SAFEST PLACES TO LIVE IN THE UK. A recent survey conducted by MoneySupermarket.com, shows Driffield, East Yorkshire is one of the safest places to live in the UK.

    The survey which analysed 3.1 million home insurance quotes over the last 12 months has identified the places most and least likely to file a burglary claim, with Driffield coming joint top for the LEAST LIKELIEST place to be burgled.

    After learning one of our towns featured as the least likeliest town to be burgled, Neighbourhood Inspector for Beverley and Driffield, Rob Cocker said: "It does not surprise me that Driffield is one of the safest towns to live in the UK. It is a reflection on the residents who have a strong rural community spirit. Driffield has high employment, good local facilities and schools. Those who are brought up in the town are unlikely to turn to life of crime. The town and surrounding area has active watch groups run by local residents who greatly assist the police with information on travelling criminals.”

    Detective Inspector Paul Kirby, who oversees all burglary investigations for the Driffield and Bridlington area added “Previous burglaries were committed by travelling criminals who were not residents of Driffield. We make every effort to prevent burglary in the East Riding and bring those responsible to justice. Every forensic opportunity is taken to identify an offender from a crime scene.”
