What's Happening In Your Area?


Shop Theft – Mount Pleasant / Holderness Road

We are aware of concerns regarding Shop Thefts in the ward area.

We have been working hard to provide support and guidance to prevent further offences, whilst completing enquiries to identify and tackle those responsible.

We will be completing regular patrols in the areas of concern.

If anybody has information about those responsible for these type of offences, then please contact us through the 101 number or alternatively, by calling the independent charity CrimeStoppers (0800 555 111)


We have re-launched our shop watch scheme and regularly liaise with our local shops and neighbourhood nuisance team to tackle this issue. We have had some great results targetting our most prolific offenders which has resulted in a huge reduction in thefts. 

Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) – Ward Area

We understand the community are concerned regarding Anti-Social Behaviour.

We have been working closely with local partners to identify those responsible whilst also seeing that changes are made to the local environment so as to design out the problems.

When suspects have been identified, proportionate action is being taken to hold them to account while also diverting them away from causing further issues. 

This work has assisted in an overall decrease of ASB reports. This is a great success and could not have been achieved without our partner agencies and the community as a whole.

Drug use – Ward Area

We are aware of a number of reports of drug use in the ward area.

We are working with partner agencies and are patrolling the area on a regular basis.

We will continue to monitor and patrol the area and take appropriate action.

We would also encourage the community to report any issues by calling us on 101 (non-emergency number) or CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.

The Drypool team have been acting upon information received from the public regarding drug use in the ward area and we are targetting dealers by providing this information to the Courts and executing search warrants on problem addresses! We have had some cracking results thanks to your information. 

We have recently acted on information regarding drug dealing in the area and work is ongoing. Please see above regarding further action in this area on the ASB section. 

Humberside Police have recently been targeting local dealers under operation DOON which has seen some great prison sentences. 

Humber Talking

Humber Talking is a way of connecting with the people we serve and understanding what’s important to them.

We have been visiting over 6100 households in the Drypool Ward area and asking a number of questions. For those we have been unable to speak to directly, information has been made available on how to take part in the survey. This has enabled us to find out how the community feel about the area and what is affecting your community.

On a very positive note the community are telling us that the Drypool ward in a good area to live in, which is quiet, friendly with good amenities and good neighbours.

On another very positive note, the vast majority of residents have also informed us that they have no issues and believe that we be there if they needed us.

You said, we did.

Although very positive comments from the Drypool Community, we are not resting on our laurels. We still of lots of work to do as we continue to serve our communities to make them safer and stronger.

We have also received feedback in relation to issues that are affecting the community. These issues have ranged from Anti-Social Behaviour, Speeding, drugs use and parking issues.

We have seen a decrease in reports of Anti-Social Behaviour over the last year. We continue to work hard and our partners to address this issue. We have recently dealt with a number of individuals both by way of prosecution and working with our partners. We are also patrolling in the areas causing concern. 

Regarding speeding we have been working with our partners in order to reduce and education motorists. We also aim to work with local schools and involve the students in specific operations to educate motorists.

We continue to develop intelligence and execute warrants regarding the use of drugs.

Our partners are aware of issues regarding parking in the Drypool area and they are working hard to improve this issue where they can.

We would also encourage the community to report any issues by calling Humberside Police on 101 (non-emergency number) or CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.

Operation Yellowfin

Op Yellowfin is a police operation to tackle the crime associated with motorbikes and off-road bikes.
Front line officers continue to work alongside CID and our intelligence units to gather information about people we suspect of carrying out thefts and motorcycle related nuisance and crime.

We continue to educate riders through Op Yellowfin too and want to remind owners of some basic crime prevention tips to prevent their pride and joy being stolen.  This is not often their pride and joy but their method to get to and from work too so the inconvenience of having a bike stolen has a massive impact on their lives.

  • Always lock your bike with its fork and ignition locks.
  • Invest in a secondary quality disc and chain locks.
  • Secure your bike to a rail, anchor point or anything solid.
  • Where there are no anchor points lock bikes together with your friends.
  • Fit a quality approved alarm and tracking system.Invest in an insurance-approved ID and marking system (eg. micro dot, DNA marking, acid etching…)
  • Park and lock your bike in well lit, busy locations. Try not to leave it in a remote area especially overnight.
  • Cover your bike. It can hide its value and your security kit as well as protect it from the weather.

Following the #OpYellowfin on social media will keep you updated on the work we are doing – showing how bikes have been seized recovered and returned to their rightful owners.

Crime Prevention Advice 
Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to their community or to their environment. This could be an action by someone else that leaves you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed. It also includes fear of crime or concern for public safety, public disorder or public nuisance.

Examples of anti-social behaviour include:

  • Nuisance, rowdy or inconsiderate neighbours
  • Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
  • Street drinking
  • Environmental damage including littering, dumping of rubbish and abandonment of cars
  • Prostitution related activity
  • Begging and vagrancy
  • Fireworks misuse
  • Inconsiderate or inappropriate use of vehicles

The police, local authorities and other community safety partner agencies, such as Fire & Rescue and social housing landlords, all have a responsibility to deal with anti-social behaviour and to help people who are suffering from it.

If you are experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour, or have any concerns about it, or other community safety issues, you should contact your local council or call the non-emergency number, 101. In an emergency, call 999.

Ask the Police

Humberside Police receive thousands of calls each week from members of the public. Although important, these calls are, inevitably, time consuming. Many of the questions focus on routine aspects of criminal law or police procedures and are repeated time and time again.

'Ask the Police' (Ask the Police) is a national online information resource of Questions and Answers that responds to a wide variety of the general public's most frequently asked policing questions. It offers an alternative online option to calling 101, reducing calls to the police, freeing up resources and saving money.

A GOOD website to look at is Police.UK and especially the ‘Crime Map’ as this will give you information about individual crimes near you postcode.
