What's Happening In Your Area?


Over recent months we have received reports from our local communities reporting concerns around poaching and hare-coursing, both during the day and during the hours of darkness.

We recognise how incidents of this nature can make residents in our rural communities feel distressed, uneasy and unsafe.

We are absolutely committed to taking action against those causing harm to our rural communities.

We continue to drive our activities under Operation Galileo and work closely with residents and farmers across our communities, along with partners and colleagues from our bordering Police Forces to tackle this offending and to bring those to justice.

We hold regular days of action, both during the day and hours of darkness to target those using rural Humberside communities for this type of offending.

As your local Neighbourhood Policing Team, we will do all we can to disrupt their offending behaviors and this includes seizing vehicles, dogs and applying for court orders to prohibit their return to our area in the future if necessary.

You can find out more about Rural & Wildlife Crime here.

 Could we ask all residents to please be vigilant and if you see any suspicious activity, lamping occurring or anything else that might seem out of place then please report it via 101.

We recently attended a report of 4 males with dogs on land at Owston Ferry.  We were given the vehicle details and managed to catch up with these males in Beltoft.  They were stopped and spoken to and each issued a Covid ticket as they had travelled a rather long way during lockdown.  We also issued 2 Traffic Offence Reports and submitted 4 Operation Fairway referrals.

Over recent years Humberside Police has made considerable effort to focus on Vulnerability. Everyone in the organisation has a responsibility to ensure the most vulnerable people in our communities are protected. Very often as a police service we are the first point of contact for many people. Having this contact enables us to identify vulnerabilities at an early stage. This will ensure that people who need support and protection receive the correct level of service from both the police and our partners such as social care, mental health services and services in the third sector.

A person is vulnerable if as a result of their situation or circumstances, they are unable to take care or protect themselves, or others, from harm or exploitation. Protecting vulnerable children and adults.

What do we do ?

  • by providing public reassurance through effective deployment of our resources
  • by working with our partners (ONGO, other social housing providers, NLC Safer Neighbourhoods, Victim Support, REMEDI)
  • gather intelligence in relation to any incident involving a vulnerable person to minimise the risk to them
  • maximise opportunities to secure evidence when offences are committed against vulnerable people to ensure offenders are brought to justice and reduce the risk of further victimisation

We have been working with a Humberside Police Intern and have been identifying residents that may be vulnerable to phone call scams. We have fitted a couple of TRUECALL call blockers and will continue to work to identify more residents that may benefit from this. We have fitted one in Epworth and one in Belton and a potential other has been identified in Epworth.

On the 15th April we held a community surgery at Ashtree Close in Belton and also invited were ONGO Homes, Fire Service and Safer Neighbourhoods as well as other partners. This was held to be able to engage with the local community and listen to their issues.

Overall calls for service for off road motorbikes and quad bikes have reduced significantly in North Lincolnshire however the team continue to receive reports from the community off this antisocial behaviour on the ward.

We want to be clear- we will not be tolerating the criminal use of motorcycles in this way and we will use all powers at our disposal to recover bikes being used in this way and to hold those responsible to account. We continue to undertake Op YELLOWFIN days of action which is seeing more and more nuisance motorbikes being stopped and seized.

We are appealing for information from our local communities as to the details of who is responsible for riding these bikes and also where they are being stored or housed and so would encourage people with information to make contact on either 101 or alternatively, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

We continue to patrol the ward area, as we are still getting calls in relation to off road motorbikes  causing a nuisance for the local communities. The local neighbourhood team are asking residents to please call in on 101 and report any nuisance off road motorcycles. Operation YELLOWFIN is a police operation to tackle the crime associated with the use of motorbikes. 

2 Section 59 warnings have recently been issued to riders of mopeds in Epworth. We will be on dedicated Op Yellowfin patrols on the weekend of 24th and 25th April 2021 and will be covering all of the Isle. Please contact us via 101 should you see any suspicious behaviour.

We continue to monitor vehicles exceeding the 7.5t weight limit restrictions on Westgate Road in Belton. The community have raised concerns regarding the safety of pedestrians and road users when these vehicles contravene the weight limit.

We work with Safer Neighbourhoods to ensure adequate signage is in place at Junction 2 of the M180 and in the village itself.

Patrols take place at varying times to identify drivers who are committing offences.

Following our recent work, further tasking activity surrounding HGV's on Westgate Road was undertaken throughout April. Businesses were called and both Logistics and Transport Managers were spoken to with regards to breaching the weight restriction rules whereby it was advised that staff training needs to be undertaken with all new drivers. Route maps were sent to offending businesses showing the roads to take in order to access the business sites. Calls for service on this matter and complaints via Facebook have reduced in regards to this and we will continue to monitor regarding this.
