Protecting your vehicle from theft (Humberside Police)
Thursday, 27 Aug 2020 17:18
This month has seen a rise in overnight high value car thefts in your area, especially of Land Rovers and Range Rovers with keyless systems.
Detective Inspector Wendy Lusby said: “We are working hard to catch suspects intent on taking what is not rightfully theirs.
“We have had a successful arrest and vehicle recovery this week in relation to one of the recent thefts and there is a lot of ongoing investigation work taking place behind the scenes working to bring further offenders into custody.
“We know how much a theft of this nature can impact your life, as most people rely on their vehicles to go about their daily business like travelling to work or visiting family.
“I want to reassure you that burglary and vehicle theft remain priority areas for our teams and we will act upon any report of a stolen vehicle.
“It is never your fault for falling victim to this type of crime and you should be able to enjoy your property without fear of it being stolen.
“However, we would like to offer some crime prevention advice aimed at making it more difficult for criminals to target your vehicles.”
Crime prevention tips
Always double check your car is physically secure and alarmed, especially when using keyless locking systems
Keep keys out of sight inside your property; don’t leave near doors, windows or out on worktops
Consider a signal blocking pouch to keep your keys in, readily available on the Internet for a low cost
Use a steering wheel lock
Consider investing in a tracking device. Whilst it won’t necessarily stop the vehicle being stolen, it will significantly increase the chances of locating it and recovering it
Check to see if you can switch off the wireless signal from your fob. This should be in your car manual or through contact with the manufacturer
Park your car as close to your property as possible to make access difficult. Where possible, block your car in with another vehicle or a driveway parking post which would mean the vehicle couldn’t be driven away
Check and make sure that no valuables are left in sight in the vehicle and keep the glove box empty where possible. Consider leaving it open to show there is nothing inside
We take all reports of this nature seriously. If your vehicle is stolen, or you have information regarding a vehicle theft, please contact us on our non-emergency number 101, or speak with your local officers. Always call 999 in an emergency.

What's Happening In Your Area?
Retail crime and Antisocial Behaviour on Gallagher and North Lincs. Retail Parks
We are aware of some instances of retail crime and anti-social behaviour on the Gallagher Retail Park and North Lincolnshire Shopping Park and our teams are active in this area.
We routinely patrol these areas and engage with stores to prevent future occurences of theft and antisocial behaviour.
Our team also make sure we monitor calls for service in this area and ensure we are able to develop our problem solving activities accordingly.
Regular patrols are continuing on both North Lincs and Gallagher retail park, by now everyone will be aware you are asked to wear a face covering/mask when entering any retail premiss, unless exempt, if you have forgotton yours ask at Customer services this is clearly signposted when you enter the stores they will be happy to help you with one.
Football Matchday parking on Lodge Moor and surrounding estates.
There have been some instances reported of problems with parking in and around the Scunthorpe United Football Ground site and surrounding estates on match days which we are actively monitoring.
Parking in pavements, across driveways, on junctions and also on double yellow lines is dangerous and can cause unnecessary obstructions to others using the roads and pavements.
We work closely with colleagues from North Lincolnshire Council and people parking in such a way risk facing receiving parking tickets, fines and in some cases, having their vehicle recovered.
There is plenty of parking available on a Match Day at Glanford Park.
Op Cameron patrols continue in the area of the football ground and surrounding businesses, as all the drive through outlets are now open, although there is no football, the retail parks are becoming increasinly busier as all are now open, please stay safe remember it will take longer to shop, buy food, due to new measures which are in place,from 24th July you will be required to wear a face covering or mask when entering any premiss
Vulnerability - keeping people safe.
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 ?
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
How do we do this ?
Pc Pearson and Pcso Dye are working with neighbours on the Edgemere estate regarding an ongoing dispuite where by counter allegations are being reported. both parties have been visited and Remedi mediation has been offered and accepted both parties are open to noise monitoring equiptment being installed by the council, all other agencies are involved and working in partnership with both parties.
PCSO Dye is visiting both caravan parks Ashfield and Parklands on a regular basis, with monthly patch walks in the area speaking to residents offering reasurance due to some being vulnerable.
We are 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 our farmers and residents across our communities, along with partners.
We hold regular days of action both during the day and during the hours of darkness to target those using rural humberside communities for this type of offending, for example, seizing vehicles, dogs and applying for court orders to restrict these people from the area.
Over the last month we have been getting reports of 3 Quad bikes causing issues around the area, they are normally out in the early hours or when its dark. if you have any information as to who is riding them or to an address where they are going to and from please call in to report on 101
Operation YELLOW FIN is a cdedicated operation targeted at criminals who use motorbikes to commit criminal activity, again please if you have any information which will identify addresses or know who th eriders are call in to report
