What's Happening In Your Area?
Op Galileo Officers from across the East Riding of Yorkshire area continue to engage in the prevention and detection of wildlife offences and poaching across the ward area. Officers will be using intelligence, new equipment and volunteers in helping to identify offenders and obtaining evidence to form prosecution cases. If you see people with dogs in fields, and if safe to do so, please ring 101 and report the incident.
Burglary reports Several reports across all wards during February, four of which occurred across Hessle, including two attempts made to garages. One across South Hunsley which involves suspect unlocking garage door by unknown means, Holly Garth and steal two bikes from within.
Vehicle crime Twelve reported across all wards last month, several of which occurred in the Hessle Ward, one of which involves suspects approaching victim’s vehicle that is parked insecure and unattended in the driveway to the property, Bishop Gurdon Close. The suspects remove items from the front seat and the glove box before making off with selected items. Please always remember to: Check Your Fob has done its Job! Don’t assume your vehicle is secure – always check doors are locked before you walk away and recheck before you settle down for the night. Consider a faraday pouch to keep your keys/fob safe and never leave them in range of your vehicle – think about keeping them at the other side of the house. Please remove all valuables from vehicle when left unattended and leave the glove-box open and empty to reduce the opportunity of becoming a victim.
Shop theft Eight reported across all wards during February, seven of which occurred across Hessle, resulting in five successful arrests. During March our patrols will continue to deliver high visibility across all wards in an attempt to deter these offences. Any intelligence re this issue can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers 0800 555 111 or Humberside Police 101.
Criminal damage – youth related Four reported cases of youth related criminal damage across Hessle and Dale ward last month, three of which occurred across Hessle involving a similar modus operandi whereby garden fencing was damaged across three separate properties. Once again, any intelligence re this issue can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111 or Humberside Police 101.
Anti-Social Behaviour Anti-social behaviour is always a priority for us at the Neighbourhood Team. We are aware of the impact anti-social behaviour can have on people and communities blighted by the inconsiderate behaviour of others. We work very closely with our partners to resolve problems and ensure those people engaging in anti-social behaviour are challenged and held to account. We are keen to hear from anyone that have concerns about anti-social behaviour and encourage people to report via 101, our non-emergency contact number. If you are unsure whether the problem you wish to report is a Police matter then please follow this link for guidance; https://www.humberside.police.uk/antisocial-behaviour. To keep your home safe: - Use timer switches on lights to make it look as if your home is occupied. - Ensure all doors and windows are secure when you leave and when you go to bed. - If possible use security lighting at the front and back of your property. - Make sure all garden tools and ladders are locked away when not being used. - Use a good quality lock on any garden sheds and outhouses. - Make a note of all makes, models and serial numbers of expensive items in your home. - Create a FREE and secure inventory of all your personal property at www.immobilise.com - If you notice anything suspicious in your neighbourhood report it on 101.
