There are plenty of opportunities for you to meet your local officers and talk to them about problems you're worried about. You can pop along to Police Surgeries, which are informal drop-in sessions at well visited places in the community. It's a chance to meet your local officers, tell them about crime and antisocial behaviour in your area and get crime prevention advice.
You can also have a say in what your local police and other agencies focus on in your area at Priority Setting Meetings. Any member of the community can go along and talk to local officers and PCSO's, council workers and people from Fire and Rescue about issues you face. What you say at these meetings will help the policing teams decide how they should focus their resources in your area. If you think we're getting it right or wrong at the moment, come along and have your say.

POACHING & RURAL CRIME (LONG TERM PRIORITY)
This is a general message and warning, that although we live in a very safe and low crime area, we are subject to offences such as burglaries or theft from vehicles. Please note that 50% of all burglaries reported in the East Riding are through insecure doors or windows, likewise over 50 % of cars broken into are insecure or have items of value on show. The crime prevention message is clear - lock it or lose it! Sometimes we get complacent about security, but thieves are opportunists, and will travel into the East Riding, often from Hull looking for easy pickings.
Cycle thefts remain an issue in the East Riding and Hull itself. This is partly due to the increase in popularity of cycling as a sport/past time, partly due to cycles being left insecure and partly due to the high value of some cycles making them a lucrative target.
Cycles are being stolen from Sheds and garages in the area, it is important to put in place good security to protect your property and possessions. It appears that houses have been identified as having high value bikes, due to vehicles at the address having bike racks, and roof bars. This indicates to thieves that owners regularly use their bikes as a hobby, and tend to invest in a good standard and spec of bike.
We will start to look at poaching offences, such as hare coursing, once farmers have harvested their crops. We will also be looking at other rural crime types such as metal theft, fly tipping etc

ANTI-SOCIAL; BEHAVIOUR - BISHOP BURTON
We have had reports of nuisance behaviour around Bishop Burton, linked to pupils attending the college, possibly using illegal substances and being rude and aggressive to residents. Parish Councillors have already had a meeting with the college who state what happens outside the college is not their responsibility.
