What's Happening In Your Area?


Animals Escaping from Land - Isle of Axeholme (South)

After having several reports of goats straying onto the road in the area of Westwoodside/Haxey it can be confirmed that this matter has now been resolved.

We would urge land owners to routinely inspect fences and gates so as to reduce the risks of animals escaping. 

We recognise there are occassions where persons tresspassing onto land may cause damage which subsequently results in animals escaping. If you find this happens to yourself, please don't hesitate to contact us to report the matter. 

Burglaries (Dwelling / Non Dwelling)

Over recent weeks we have received a number of reports relating to incidents of burglar against outbuildings, farm buildings and also residential properties resulting in some high value equipment being taken. 

Burglary of homes or gardens can be devastating for victims and the force are committed to deterring and prosecuting burglars. However, we are keen to stop burglary in the first place and need you and other homeowners to play their part by taking steps to prevent offences and make homes and property unappealing targets for thieves.

We work hard to prevent burglary and bring offenders to justice, however there are actions that householders can take to reduce the risk of being burgled.

Often many homes are left unsecured with doors and windows left open or unlocked, which provide easy access for a thief.

You can find out more information from the following link: 

To further support the prevention of crime i our communities, we have been working with North Lincolnshire council and launched Trade Watch to help stop residents in rural areas being a target of crime.

The voluntary scheme has been created following reports of door step crime across the county.

It will enable residents to feel safe in their community and send out a clear message that rogue traders and criminal activity will not be accepted.

As part of the scheme, residents will agree not to commit to any work offered on the doorstep and report any suspicious companies or activities to the police.

Residents in rural areas can sign up to the scheme, once they do, they will receive a Trade Watch window sticker and supporting information.

Where full streets or villages take part in the scheme, street signs are available for them to display.

Living in a Trade Watch area will reduce the risk of being approached or becoming a victim of door step crime.

To find out more about Trade Watch, contact the council’s Safer Neighbourhoods team on 01724 244665 or email

Poaching / Hare Coursing:

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 Gallileo 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.

 We will do all we can to disrupt their offending behaviours and this includes seizing vehicles, dogs and applying for court orders to prohibit their return to our area in the future if necessary.
