POLICE POWERS

  • Section 34 Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014: Authority to use section 35 Dispersal Powers. Officers will need to request that a Police Inspector puts this authority in place in order for a Police Constable or Police Community Support Officer, in uniform to exclude a person from an area for a period up to 48 hours (some restrictions do apply)
  • Using a Motor Vehicle in a Manner Causing Alarm, Distress or Annoyance: Section 59 and 60 of the Police reform Act 2002, Police (retention and disposal of motor vehicles). A Police Constable or Police Community Support Officer in uniform can issue a warning to the driver as well as the vehicle in question which will last for 12 months. If the driver or vehicle commits an offence under section 3 Road Traffic Act 1988 (careless and inconsiderate driving) and/or Section 34 (prohibition of off-road driving) for a second time then the vehicle that is being used will be seized by police. At the same time a fine can be issued to the driver.
  • The power to seize a motor vehicle (No Driving Licence/Uninsured): Section 165A of the Road Traffic Act 1988: A Police Officer in uniform may seize any motor vehicle if the officer has reasonable grounds for believing that the vehicle is or was being driven by a person who doesn't hold a valid licence for that class of vehicle or is uninsured for use by that person. All persons using a motor vehicle on a road or other public place must have insurance and a driver's licence. The police can also issue a fine for either of the above offences taking place.
  • Drugs-Power to Stop and Search Persons and Vehicles: Section 23(2) of the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971: A Police Officer who has reasonable grounds for suspecting that any person is in possession of a control drug may search that person, any vehicle in which the officer suspects that the drug may be found.

If any other criminal offence takes place the police will proportionately investigate the incident along with the victim's wishes.

UPDATE

  2. Two males were issued a S59 warning as per above and fined for riding their motor bikes within the skate park behind the library. The police took action on the 11 and 13 August.

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.
