There have been no reports of theft of vehicles or vehicle interference in the Dale and South Hunsley area. We have received 2 report of theft from vehicles, 1 job where a number plate was stolen and other where goods were stolen from a parked HGV. Please 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.

There has also been 1 report of criminal damage caused to a van in the area. There has been 1 report of damage caused to a property in Dale and 2 reports of damage caused to vehicles in the South Hunsley area. 6 reports have also been made regarding damage to other property in December, predominantly in more rural areas in Eppleworth and South Cave.

Shop theft There have been no reports of shop theft in Hessle this month and only 1 report across South Hunsley and Dale Ward

Shed Burglary Following a rise in the number of shed and garage burglaries in Hessle last month, this continues to be a focus for the local policing team. Suspect(s) are gaining access to the outbuilding via various means, often by damaging the structure, before making off with various items of property including power tools bicycles, fishing equipment and electronics. The team have been patrolling local areas which appear to have been targeted for burglary. As part of these high visibility patrols we have been conducting stop checks on individuals acting suspiciously, as well as providing safety advice to concerned residents. It is important to make sure that your outbuilding are always locked and no valuables are visible inside, particularly if it can be seen by members of the public. Burglary During December there have been several reports of residential burglaries being committed around the area, particularly in Swanland. In the vast majority of these burglaries the suspects have attempted to / gained entry into garden sheds and garages, in most cases by smashing windows. This has resulted in the theft of numerous pedal cycles and tools amongst other items. Please report any suspicious activity to the local team as intelligence is vital in identifying offenders. Detailed crime and ASB data for your area can be obtained by visiting www.police.uk and following the ‘Find your Neighbourhood’ link.

High Visibility Patrols COVID -19

Once again the country has been put back into a national lockdown by the Prime Minister with the infection rate set as ‘very high’. As a result of this, the team with continue with hi viz patrols to ensure that the Government’s guidelines are being adhered to. Our approach continues to be engaging, explaining and encouraging individuals to comply with the new regulations. Should people refuse to follow the lockdown guidelines then fines will continue to be given out. Anti-Social Behaviour With schools and colleges now shut because of the National Lockdown, it is likely that instances of ASB will continue to come to our attention. Members of your neighbourhood team will be in ASB hot spots throughout this time to deter Covid breaches, and will be working in conjunction with the council ASB Team to tackle sustained issues were they arise



During these winter months the harvested fields in the rural areas we cover become targets for people who readily commit wildlife crime such as hare coursing and poaching. Operation GALILEO is a force initiative to target daytime wildlife crime and ZODIAC targeting night time offences. Specially trained wildlife crime officers will be tasked to patrol hotspot areas throughout the autumn and winter.
