What's Happening In Your Area

Burglary - Residential and Commercial

We continue to investigate residential and commercial burglaries in Driffield and surrounding areas.  Many of these have been to outbuildings and sheds. We would ask that you review your security arrangements. Your local officers will be patrolling vulnerable areas but ask that you report any suspicious activity at the time via 101 or 999 if urgent.

Shop Theft

During August there were several reports of shop thefts.  We will continue working with local retail premises to ensure that best evidence is gained in order for us to deal with the offenders more effectively. We will continue to utilise ShopWatch to alert more stores to suspects. 

Drug Use and dealing  

We will continue to develop intelligence and where appropriate obtain warrants and execute them. Our positive work with Bridlington officers will only have a positive ‘knock on’ effect in our Towns and Villages.

Humber Talking is still being undertaken in the Driffield area. We will be adhering to Social distancing guidance and will not be entering houses but speaking to members of the public who want to take part on their doorsteps.  If you would rather participate online and highlight any issues you think the Police should be dealing with please visit the website www.mycommunityalert.co.uk/humbertalking your responses help us better understand our area and prioritise issues to be tackled.

The Community Team will continue to attend Parish Council meetings when their duties allow.

Meet Your Officers

Rural surgeries are set to continue in September with the local Community team pitching up in various locations around the Driffield area, giving general crime prevention and advice on policing matters. We will continue to update Facebook and Twitter with dates as they become available. Come and see us!

Social distancing and Covid protocols will be in place.

Stay informed through our social media channels, find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @humberbeat. For incidents that don’t require an immediate response call our non-emergency 101 line.

Other thefts include a set of solar lights from a garden, a purse from a wedding reception and 2 mobile phones – one from licensed premises, the other from the loser’s mobility scooter in the street.   A compressor was stolen from an industrial site.  An articulated trailer with container was stolen from another site.

On 2 occasions, locks securing farm gates were broken off and stolen.  

Your local officers will be by default patrolling vulnerable areas but ask that you report any suspicious activity at the time via 101 or 999. We also remind you to lock all windows and doors in the warmer weather when leaving your property. 

Please also consider fitting an alarm to sheds and garages that house high value items. 
We welcome contact from you to review your security arrangements.  Please pop into your local police station or contact us via email at
