‘Please note due to Covid 19 there will be no Police Surgeries held until further notice to government guidelines around social distancing and gathering’

Success Stories

Two successful drug warrants have been carried out by the Community Team at Driffield, under the Mis-use of Drugs Act.  One of the premises contained 1500 cannabis plants and equipment worth approximately £10,000.

Several Section 59 Warning Notices have been issued by Community PCSO’s, regarding the use of vehicles – i.e. driving over land.

Crime patterns of note

Dwelling Burglaries are still an issue with numerous being reported in February.   Shop thefts have seen an increase in the month of February, suspects are thought to travelling from out of the area.


Residential & Commercial Burglaries

Residential and commercial premises have been targeted in Driffield and surrounding villages. Resources are being directed to vulnerable areas however we would ask householders and businesses to review their security arrangements and upgrade them as required. Also we would like the public to be vigilant and report, at the time, any suspicious incidents.

Rural Crime

Officers will continue to conduct drop-ins to farms and businesses to offer advice on target hardening their assets. Fly tipping remains a focus with officers working alongside the East Riding Council Environmental teams to apprehend the culprits.

Operation 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. 

Operation Galaxy

Our Op Galaxy officers are focused on proactively tackling crime and those responsible for it. Our task force is also able to identify vulnerabilities and help vulnerable people while we are out in our communities. Please take a look at the news section on our website for frequent full updates and details of arrests made.
