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.



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.

Rural Crimes

The following list shows some of the crimes that have occurred recently in your area.

  • A new build house in Howden was broken into and various items stolen including doors and tools.
  • Entry was gained into a secure property, where car keys and then 2 vehicles (BMW’s) were stolen, (one vehicle has since been recovered).
  • A secure vehicle parked at Howden Railway station has been broken into and stolen.
  • Wire fencing at the side of a property in Howden has been damaged.


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.

1. Park your vehicle as close as you can to a wall or fence. This reduces the amount of room that the offender needs to manoeuvre under your vehicle and cut away the converter.

2. If your catalytic converter is bolted on you can ask your local garage to weld the bolts on to make removal more difficult.

3 .Some garages will etch a unique serial number onto your converter so it can easily be identified if it is stolen. You will also be provided with a sticker to be displayed in your window that indicates your converter is marked. You can also purchase cat clamps which will also take time to remove and slow the offender down who will be in a hurry.

4. If you have a Toyota you can purchase a device that will lock in around the converter to make it more difficult to remove.

5. Park in a well lit area.

6. Fit your vehicle with a car alarm to distract an offender.
