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.

REDUCTION IN CRIME AND ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR (LONG TERM ISSUE)
We are experiencing a run of sheds and garages being targeted especially in the Cottingham South Ward. Indeed the allotments of Park Lane have been decimated by a group of young males causing much damage and setting fire to some sheds. 6 persons have been identified and are currently in the progress of being interviewed and the relevant files prepared for prosecution.
We are also aware of some reports of nuisance motorbikes and groups of youths. Patrols are being sent to target these areas.
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.

INCREASE THE NUMBER OF NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH SCHEMES WITHIN THE WARDS (LONG TERM ISSUE)
We would like to increase the number of neighbourhood watch schemes and community groups within our area, and the more people looking out for suspicious activitiy then the more likely we are to prevent crime happening in the first place. We need people to be our eyes and ears in the community. This is also an ideal way to send out crime prevention messages.
