Officers from across the East Riding of Yorkshire are now preparing for the start of wildlife offences and poaching across the ward area. Now that harvesting is coming to an end and land work well under way we see an increase in poaching offences. Officers will be using intelligence, new equipment and volunteers in helping to identify offenders and obtaining evidence to form prosecution cases.
Operation Gallant continues to run across the region. Neighbourhood watch is a deterrent and brings communities together, for information relating to the scheme please visit your local station. The team are always keen to allay the fear of crime and will continue to analyse trends and intelligence to ensure the community remains safe. Please remember that it is the fear and the very notion of invasion that affects us with regard to burglary. Don’t leave your windows open, look after each other protect your neighbours in particular the elderly and vulnerable. If you see anything report it no matter how trivial you may think it is at the time, it may well be that your piece of information has significant impact.
