Key Information

There are plenty of opportunities for you to meet your local officers and talk to them about problems you're worried about. You can pop along to Police Surgeries, which are informal drop-in sessions at well visited places in the community. It's a chance to meet your local officers, tell them about crime and antisocial behaviour in your area and get crime prevention advice.

You can also have a say in what your local police and other agencies focus on in your area at Priority Setting Meetings. Any member of the community can go along and talk to local officers and PCSO's, council workers and people from Fire and Rescue about issues you face. What you say at these meetings will help the policing teams decide how they should focus their resources in your area. If you think we're getting it right or wrong at the moment, come along and have your say.

Theft of and from motor vehicles

Car crime makes up to 20% of all recorded crimes in England and Wales. Car crime is distressing and annoying as it can cause a lot of inconvenience waiting for repairs or your insurer to pay. That is why security features of your car should be as important as any other feature. A lot of vehicle crime results from criminals seeing opportunities and taking them. 
To make your vehicle secure.
Keep your valuables and possessions safe, don’t leave anything on display and take everything with you when you leave the vehicle.
Invest in a good security device, immobilisers and steering locks prevent the vehicle being driven away, locking wheel nuts prevent your wheels from being stolen. A professionally fitted alarm is also a good preventative initiative.
Thieves always like to steal from vehicles parked in places where they run the least risk of being seen. If you have to leave your vehicle parked in the open make sure it is locked and secure and left in a well-lit area which is open to view.
Fuel theft is on the increase. Farm and commercial vehicles are being increasingly targeted, often due to the remote location they are kept in. 
Your local Neighbourhood policing team are happy to offer you advice on vehicle security.  For farmers and landowners the scheme “Farm Watch “has been set up, details can be obtained from Driffield Police Station.
