Welcome to the Beverley Neighbourhood Policing Area
Welcome to the Beverley Neighbourhood Policing Team, which covers the wards of Beverley Rural, Minster and Woodmansey and St Mary’s.
With the magnificent Beverley Minster and Westwood this is a policing area that does experience its fair share of visitors, especially on race days. With the unique shops in the area and history that surrounds us we want to ensure that everyone enjoys their days out in the area.
We are a dedicated team of police officers, police community support officers and support staff. We work closely with the public and other agencies to reduce crime and antisocial behaviour, building safer and stronger communities. We’re here to keep you safe and be visible in the right area at the right time. If you see us out and about please stop and say hello.
Update From Inspector Paul Gladstone
Hello and Welcome,
We begin 2021 with a sense of renewed optimism looking forward to the year ahead and the opportunities it may present. We remain very aware of the impact that the current Covid-19 public health emergency is placing on individuals, families and our communities as a whole. With the ever changing situation, we remain resolute in our commitment, effort and energy, continuing to plan and work with community groups and our partners across the Public Sector, to reduce the impact of Covid-19 on our local communities and to keep you all safe.
In (area) the vast majority of you have been doing what’s right for a long time, following the government guidelines to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus and keeping one another safe. We continue to use the 4E’s approach to policing Covid-19; engage, explain, encourage and finally enforce the regulations where applicable. You may have seen on our social media channels and in the local media that in recent weeks we have seen an increase in house parties and larger gatherings. Where there have been clear breaches of the regulations we have taken proportionate and necessary action, issuing appropriate fines to individuals. As vaccination roll out continues across health care settings, you will see your local officers in attendance, providing reassurance around key vaccination sites.
Regardless of Covid 19, our policing focus remains to protect the most vulnerable, keep people safe and to respond to serious crime. Our neighbourhood policing activity will continue to be focused on maintaining our core operational duties and delivering our Neighbourhood Policing Strategy. The provision of highly visible and locally connected neighbourhood policing teams remain the foundation of our force operating model.
