Welcome to the Cottingham Neighbourhood Policing Area

About Cottingham

Welcome to the Cottingham Neighbourhood Policing Team, which covers the wards of Cottingham North and Cottingham South.

With the housing developments, hospital and part of the university campus in the area Cottingham is becoming a more diverse area to live and work, which in turn is ensuring the vibrancy of the community remains.

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 Philip Hinch

I have over 26 years policing experience, working in both neighbourhood and response policing roles. I’ve worked as a beat manager, a beat sergeant, and now I’m proudly leading the Neighbourhood team for Beverley and Holderness.

With such a large area my team are in the process of finding out what is important to you, and what you would like us to work on in the short, medium and long term. If you haven’t heard of #HumberTalking it will be coming to your area during the course of the year but there are lots of events we attend where you can speak to us. Check out our twitter and updates on the website for details.

The team currently operate from a number of police bases at Beverley,Kirk Ella, Brough, Cottingham, Hedon and Withernsea.

We are committed to building stronger links within the community reducing crime and the fear of crime keeping you safe being visible in the right area at the right time.
