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.

Criminal damage – 2 reports across Hessle last month of which a large wall was damaged to a property in Northgate and a second property had their window smashed by a stone off Beverley Road. A further 4 reports across Dale Ward, all of which involved fencing to victim’s land being deliberately kicked or pushed down.

Community Priorities: 

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.

 Please report any suspicious activity to the local team as intelligence is vital in identifying offenders.

Operations and patrol areas

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.


Operation YELLOWFIN is a force wide response to motorcycle and motorcycle enabled crime where they be the on or off road type. The following is guidance produced by HUMBERSIDE POLICE’s Media department on how you can help HUMBERSIDE Police in this matter.

Tackling motorcycle related crime and antisocial behaviour  - Humberside Police’s Operation Yellowfin continues to be on the lookout for motorbikes which may be stolen, ridden dangerously or illegally.

Officers working under Op Yellowfin are dedicated to their task and continue to stop offenders, arrest suspects and recover stolen property, making our communities safer for everyone.

What we need from you – We want our communities to work with us by providing information about stolen bikes, scooters, mopeds being stored in lockups and garages.  This information helps us recover stolen property and arrest those involved.

If you have information, either call us on 101 or use the online reporting form on this link: https://www.humberside.police.uk/report-it and quote ‘OpYellowfin’ to our call takers and officers.’


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.
