Welcome to the Ings neighbourhood policing team

Coronavirus (Covid-19) update

We begin 2021 with a sense of renewed optimism looking forward to the year ahead and the opportunities it may present.  We remain very aware of the impact that the current Covid-19 public health emergency is placing on individuals, families and our communities as a whole across (area).  With the ever changing situation, we remain resolute in our commitment, effort and energy, continuing to plan and work with community groups and our partners across the Public Sector, to reduce the impact of Covid-19 on our local communities and to keep you all safe.

In (area) the vast majority of you have been doing what’s right for a long time, following the government guidelines to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus and keeping one another safe. We continue to use the 4E’s approach to policing Covid-19; engage, explain, encourage and finally enforce the regulations where applicable. You may have seen on our social media channels and in the local media that in recent weeks we have seen an increase in house parties and larger gatherings. Where there have been clear breaches of the regulations we have taken proportionate and necessary action, issuing appropriate fines to individuals. As vaccination roll out continues across health care settings in (area/s) you will see your local officers in attendance, providing reassurance around key vaccination sites.

Regardless of Covid 19, our policing focus remains to protect the most vulnerable, keep people safe and to respond to serious crime. Our neighbourhood policing activity will continue to be focused on maintaining our core operational duties and delivering our Neighbourhood Policing Strategy. The provision of highly visible and locally connected neighbourhood policing teams remain the foundation of our force operating model.

Bonfire Night

In the lead up to bonfire night, Humberside Police, Hull City Council and partners receive a number of complaints regarding unauthorised fires being lit on the green areas in your neighbourhood. 

The Council does not permit bonfires to be lit at any time of the year on any of its land.  I also have to inform you that there are no organised events in the City this year.

Furthermore, all residents and businesses are reminded that the illegal dumping/burning of controlled waste on unauthorised bonfires is an offence and may lead to further enforcement action if any person is found to be responsible.  Please be aware that action may be brought against any tenants convicted of lighting fires on open spaces.  This could lead to the loss of your home.

If you have any large household items for disposal, Hull City Council has a bulky items collection service and you are entitled to one free visit in each calendar year, removing up to 5 items.  Please visit the Council’s website - or telephone (01482) 300300 for further information on this free service available to all households. 

You might choose to use someone other than the Council to dispose of household items on your behalf but you must check they have an appropriate waste carrier’s licence.  We strongly recommend you always do this before paying and allowing the person to remove your rubbish.  It’s easy to check someone - you can do this by asking to see their original waste carrier’s licence and contacting the Environment Agency, by calling 03708 506 506 or visiting . If you fail to carry out this check and you give your rubbish to someone who is not an authorised person and your rubbish is subsequently fly-tipped, you, as the identified last owner of the waste, could receive a fixed penalty or a substantial fine.

If on reading this letter you require help or advice from the Council to dispose or recycle your household rubbish, please contact the Council’s Waste and Open Spaces Team.  You can do this by email , by telephone 01482 300 300 or online .

Please be aware that Humberside Police and Humberside Fire and Rescue Service have commenced with their high visibility patrols in the area. 

Please can we take this opportunity to bring to your attention the Arson Alert signage that has been installed in the area. This text service allows residents to send through evidence of arson/fire setting in the local area via text or What’s app messages. This is not a replacement for the emergency 999 service which must be used to report sightings of fires in progress. For your information, the Arson Alert number is 07940 737141.


ASB and Criminal Damage  - Regis Court, Hull

The Ings Team have had an increase in reports for Anti Social Behaviour and criminal damage in the area of Regis Court, Hull. We are working in joint partnership with Sanctuary Housing to address these issues.

You will continue to see an increase in patrols in this area. We encourage the community to continue to report these issues by calling us on 101 (non-emergency number) or CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.
