Welcome to the Goole and Pocklington Neighbourhood Policing Area

About Goole and Pocklington

Welcome to the Goole and Pocklington Neighbourhood Policing Team, which cover the wards of Goole North, Goole South, Howden, Howdenshire, Snaith, Airmyn, Rawcliffe & Marshlands, Pocklington Provincial and Wolds Weighton. 

This large and diverse section of the East Riding covers both urban and rural areas, and includes ports, market towns, numerous villages, main roads and motorways.  We also border other forces including North and South Yorkshire Police. 

The team, led by an Inspector, includes Sergeants, Constables, Police Community Support Officers (PCSO) and volunteers working with partners to build safer and stronger communities.

The team are based out of Goole and Pocklington Police Station and work closely with 24/7 Patrol Officers who respond to public calls for service and help to provide a high visibility presence to our communities.  We are also supported by other departments including CID, intelligence officers and Special Operations Units such as Dog Handlers, Firearms and Roads Policing.

Update From Inspector Jon Powell

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 across Goole and Pocklington, 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.
