Humberside: Please help us tackle the stolen goods market

We are urging people to get any new gifts they have bought or receive over Christmas registered free with the property logging website www.Immobilise.com. 

Doing so will mean your valuables are more likely to be returned if lost or stolen, as well as potentially catching a criminal in possession of stolen goods.

Key Information

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.

Rural Crime
Over the coming weeks we will be focussing on rural crime in its many forms.  Patrols will actively look to identify offenders and take appropriate action.  In a widespread area such as ours, individuals can feel isolated, but wherever you live, we would ask you to report anything suspicious to your local Neighbourhood Team.

26 Jan 2018

As we have increased patrols in the area, identifying burglary offenders is now a priority.   As a result there have been several arrests recently and offenders will be dealt with in due course.  Once again, we rely on you contacting us if you have any information. 

Ring 999 in an emergency, or 101 for non-emergency calls.   There is a ring-you-back facility available if you don’t want to wait in a queue when lines are busy.  Alternatively, you can e-mail us by going to our website at www.humberside.police.uk  and following the links to your Neighbourhood Policing Team.

​Criminal Damage
Humberside police are dealing positively with all reports of Criminal Damage across the area, aiming to reduce the number of reported incidents and reassuring the public. Patrols are increased in areas that are identified as having increased or reoccurring problems to do with criminal damage.
Advice or a home visit can be arranged with your PCSO’s based at Driffield Neighbourhood Policing team. 

For specific information on crimes in the area, please use the Police.co.uk website.  It takes a considerable period of time for us to update all crime recorded on previous newsletters, so we will concentrate on what we think you need to know.
