Vulnerability

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.

Objectives

  • To provide public reassurance as well as reducing the opportunity for crime and disorder through the effective deployment of police resources.
  • Working with partners, stakeholders and local communities to protect vulnerable people
  • Maximise opportunities to secure information and intelligence in relation to any incident which involves a vulnerable person.
  • Maximise opportunities to secure evidence in relation to any potential offences whilst ensuring that the timing and scale of any police action or intervention mitigates the risk to vulnerable people.

Police Procedures

  • A vulnerable adult assessment, to be completed in order to share information with our partners.
  • A vulnerable child assessment form will be completed for children 17 and under, to share with our partners.
  • Completing an ASB matrix form to direct which partners can assist with the victim.
  • Ensuring that High Graded ASB victims are referred to an ASB panel and are reviewed within a certain time scale.

 

UPDATE 24/06/20

While your local officers are out within the community, they will ensure that if any vulnerable person is identified that they request other partners to help the victim.

Drug Dealing - ward wide

We understand there are concerns in respect of drug dealing across the Barton ward and we are absolutely committed to taking robust action. There have been a number of proactive warrants executed over recent months within this area already.

We have recently become aware of an increase in the use of Nitrous Oxide gas and that our local communities report finding discarded micro cannisters on the streets. We have issued a HEALTH WARNING in respect of the recreational use of Nitrous Oxide which can have serious health risks including :

  • Loss of Blood Pressure
  • Heart Attack
  • Fainting
  • Bone Marrow Suppression
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Poisoning of the Central Nervous System

The above risks can increase if combined with alcohol or other drugs. Our advice is clear - do not inhale this substance and seek medical advice if consumed.

It is an offence to supply, or offer to supply a psychoactive substance under the Psychoactive Substance Act 2016 - which could lead to a sentence of up to 7 years and / or a fine if convicted.

This type of action will continue. We are working hard to understand the nature of this problem and urge members of the public to report their concerns to their local team, to police through the 101 number or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111). 

Drugs, cultivation and dealing

We have now launched operation Galaxy - which is a specialised team that are tackling drug dealing, cultivation and use. Please continue to report drug related matters. There have been numerous warrants executed in the Ashby ward area and several people have been arrested. The neighbourhood team take an active part within these operations. We will continue to target criminals and build up intelligence to secure warrants.

CrimeStoppers is a tried and tested method of reporting anonymous information to the police. We will assess and where the evidence exists , take positive action on reports of drug dealing, via this mechanism.

CrimeStoppers can be reached via their website or on 0800 555 111.

UPDATE : 24/06/2020
