Meet Your Team
What's Happening In Your Area?
The Neighbourhood Policing Team meet regularly with partners to ensure we have a multi agency approach to local issues, individuals and problem solving. These meetings are regularly attended by partners including Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, Youth and Family Support Officers and the East Riding Anti-Social Behavour Team. We share information and resources to deal with local neighbourhood issues, in particular those identifed as causing the most harm in the community and continue to patrol Howden and the surrounding rural areas during our shifts.
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.
The following list shows some of the crimes that have occurred in your area in the previous two months:
Secure garages at two properties in Knedlington Road, Howden, were broken into and tools stolen from one of them.
A detached secure garage at a property in Asselby Road, Knedlington was broken into and a cycle stolen.
Items left in a carport at a property in Howden have been stolen.
Catalytic converter thefts - how to protect your vehicle
We are warning motorists to be on their guard following a number of reports of catalytic converters being stolen in our areas.
While all cars are potentially at risk, thieves are most likely to target hybrids, where the catalytic converter is used less and the metals are less likely to be damaged, or vehicles with a higher ground clearance, such as vans and SUVs. Older vehicles are also targeted due to the fact they contain higher amounts of precious metal than the newer models .We want to remind residents to be extra vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to us. We advise you to do the following.
