What's Happening In Your Area?


Rural Crime

The trend generally at this time of year are towards higher value thefts from farms and rural businesses due to staff spending many hours in fields at harvest.

Officers will be conducting drop-ins to farms and businesses this month to offer advice on target hardening their assets as part of tackling rural crime.

Poaching season is upon us and hare coursing activity usually increases over the autumn months, Wildlife Officers will make rural patrols under OPERATION GALILEO to tackle and disrupt offenders involved in this activity

Our priorities this month are to reduce:

Anti Social Behaviour – (ASB) in general  We have had 2 reports of criminal damage across North Ward last month, one of which involved unknown suspect enter an unlocked green house, Eppleworth Road and using a marker pen, cause graffiti as well as smashing a shed window.  The second report involved unknown suspect’s case damage to Halloween party displays belonging to a charity organisation, King George playing fields during a charity event.  Across the South Ward we have had 3 reports of criminal damage to dwellings in the Hallgate and Golf Links Road area all involving suspect’s throwing unknown objects at victim’s property windows causing them to smash.   With darker nights setting in, the activities and festivities this usually brings we will continue with high visibility patrols in an attempt to deter anti-social-behaviour.   Any with intelligence re this issue can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers 0800 555 111 or Humberside Police 101.


We continue to patrol in a High Visibility manner to deter any crime and provide support and reassurance to the public. An important source of information on those people are that are involved in either stealing or selling on the stolen goods comes from the public. Please contact us on 101 or ring Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you know who is responsible.
