What's Happening In Your Area?


Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) – Hailgate, Howden

Youths gathering in East Riding Yorkshire Council/Co-Op car park causing nuisance to local residents (scooters/ skateboards, noise). Officers will be patrolling the area on an evening to deter any potential anti-social behaviour.

Anyone caught engaging in anti-social behaviour will be dealt with under the FAIRWAY process jointly with East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Please continue to report any nuisance behaviour or criminal behaviour to the police via 101 or 999 in an emergency.

Update :- Good news is that there have been no further reports of ASB in the area since 21st August.

Operation Galileo

Operation Galileo is the Humberside Police response to tackling and reducing the incidents of hare coursing across the force area. Over the next 1to 2 months at this time of year there is a seasonal increase in Wildlife Crime, namely illegal Hare Coursing and Poaching.

As part of Operation Galileo dedicated Patrols will aim to prevent and detect this activity with planned days of action. In addition, local patrols will be conducted to deter this type of criminality and will take positive action to anyone caught committing these offences and use the full extent of the law to disrupt this activity as much as possible.

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

Update:- There are a number of dedicated patrols  covering the East Riding of Yorkshire over the next month for Operation Galileo. Officers will be highly mobile and responding to calls of Hare coursing and Poaching on the days. However local officers also respond when the days of action are not on.

Update :- A 4x4 vehicle has been found burnt out in a field off the A614 near Portington, it is highly likely this was a vehicle used in rural/wildlife crime and shows how they like to escape recognition..

Crime issues of particular note

The following list shows some of the crimes that have occurred in the previous month in your area:

Entry was gained into a property which was searched and cash stolen.
A secure vehicle parked in a car park was broken into and a handbag stolen.

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 all our Police surgeries have been canceled. If you need non urgent contact please ring 101 and leave a message and we will contact you as soon as possible. Thanks Simon and Bill
