Kingswood

Welcome to the Kingswood neighbourhood policing team

Coronovirus (Covid-19) update

We start 2021 with renewed optimism looking forward to the year ahead and opportunities it may present.  We remain very realistic of the impact that the current Covid-19 public health emergency is placing on individuals, families and our communities as a whole across Humberside.  With the ever changing position, we remain resolute in our intent, effort and energy, continuing to plan and work with community groups and our partners across the Public Sector, to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 on our local communities and keep you safe.

In Humberside the vast majority of our community have been doing what’s right for a long time. We continue to use the 4E’s approach to Policing Covid-19; engage, explain, encourage and finally enforce the regulations where applicable. You will see on our social media channels and in the local media that in recent weeks on occasion we have seen an increase in house parties and larger gatherings.  Where these have been flagrant breaches of the regulations we have taken proportionate and necessary action, issuing appropriate fines. As vaccination roll out continues across Health Care settings in Hull and surrounding villages; you will see our officers in attendance, providing reassurance around these 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.

The Neighbourhood Policing Strategy and our focus concentrates on 4 Pillars:

Building Resilient Communities
Protecting Vulnerable People – safeguarding
Managing Offenders and diverting people away from crime and Anti-social behaviour
Maintaining Public Trust and Confidence.

Through 2021 we continue to utilise locally developed evidence based practice in order to reduce harm, reduce repeat calls for service and thereby increase community resilience. As we have experienced through our embedded Problem Orientated Policing approach; listening to communities (through Humbertalk surveys) to find out what matters to you, sharing information between partners and working collaboratively is integral in not only defining local issues and priorities but delivering successful, tangible sustainable results.

Regardless of Covid- 19 we are still here and not going anywhere. Our Community Teams remain out and about, taking necessary precautions wearing appropriate PPE delivering our Neighbourhood Policing Service. Covid-19 has seen some changes to our engagement and we have adapted and utilised technology using online meetings for community engagement and meetings; the team will continue to utilise our social media channels (Twitter: @humberbeatHULL and Facebook: @humberbeatHULL) and our team pages on the force website to keep you informed of what we are doing.

At the commencement of this pandemic I reported I was impressed by my team’s response and attitude over those initial few days. It was, and months down the line, remains to this day fantastic. This is not without challenge and sacrifice. We’ve seen and continue to see some fantastic team ethos, not just internally but working with our partners from other agencies and members of the community. The North Hull Team continue the pledge and commitment to you, our communities and each other.

To the very best of our ability we will continue to:

Protect the vulnerable and keep people safe.
We will be out in your ward areas, visible, listening and working with you to deliver the services you need at this challenging time.
We will continue to tackle crime and ASB
Most of all we will be here when you need us

You will still see us out and about as we continue to do our job and keep our communities safe. As always there are a number of ways you can get in touch with us if you need us.

Stay informed through our social media channels, find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  Don't forget to also sign up to My Community Alert and receive community alerts directly to your devices.

For incidents that don’t require an immediate response call our non-emergency 101 line. You can also report non-emergency crimes online via our reporting portal. In an emergency always dial 999.

Kingswood Ward Priorities

Shop Theft on Kingswood Retail Park

The shop theft have been increasing since lockdown has ended and the local NPT have implemented a shop theft project aimed at reducing shop thefts, making staff more aware of suspicious activity and looking to introduce a simple system for stores to follow when gathering evidence to ensure more incidents can be dealt with positively with the appropriate evidence.

To support this, officers will complete high visibility patrols at the retail park.  This again will be supported by plain clothes officers in an effort to prevent and detain offenders.

We are working with the stores to implement a plan, improve evidence gathering within the stores and look at the best ways within the stores to reduce the thefts and deter the shop lifters from entering the store.

So far we have had 5 arrests which has resulted in various outcomes from a warning to a 28 week prison sentence.  This has also resulted in a reduction in shop thefts over recent months.

Reported Crime During May 2021

 

Criminal Damage to Vehicles – 1 reports of damage to vehicles across the Kingswood Ward during June.

Burglary Reports - 2 report of Burglary to a residential property and 1 report of a Commercial Burglary in the Kingswood Ward during June.

Theft of Pedal Cycle – there have been 2 reports in Kingswood Ward during June.

ASB – 8 incidents of ASB on the Kingswood Ward during June, these are generally between the Village Green and Chalky Path.  This is a reduction from last month.

Hi Viz Patrolling – Over this past month officers have been patrolling the area of Kingswood, paying particular attention to the retail park and the village green due to recent reports.  Alongside this officers have also been conducting plain clothes patrols around these areas in an effort to tackle the issues reported to the neighbourhood team

Covid-19 Scam Awareness

Dear Resident

We are writing to you with regards to how you can access support and safeguard yourself against scams during the coronavirus outbreak.

Unfortunately not everyone out there is trustworthy and some people will try to take advantage of this unusual situation our society is facing and try to exploit people.

Listed below are some of the scams that you could be approached with, but please note that criminals and their scams come in all shapes and sizes, and they may contact you at the door, by phone, post or online:

  • Be aware of people offering miracle cures or vaccines for coronavirus – there is no specific treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • People impersonating healthcare workers, claiming to be offering ‘home-testing’ for coronavirus – this is a scam and these kits are not currently available to buy
  • Emails saying that you can get a refund on taxes, utilities or similar - they are usually bogus and they are just trying to obtain your bank and personal details
  • Fake products available to buy online that advise they can protect you or cure coronavirus - these will not help and are just designed to take your money
  • Mobile phone applications that claim to give you updates on the virus but instead, they lock your phone and demand a ransom
  • Calls from people purporting to be from your bank, or from the police, asking for your bank details over the phone
  • People offering to do you’re shopping or collecting medication and asking for money upfront and then disappearing

To avoid becoming a victim of a scam, we’ve please follow our tips and advice below:

  • Be cautious and listen to your instincts. Don’t be afraid to hang up, bin it, delete it or shut the door
  • Take your time; don’t be rushed
  • If someone claims to represent a charity, ask them for ID. Be suspicious of requests for money up front. Check with family and friends before accepting offers of helps if you are unsure
  • If you are online, be aware of fake news and use trusted sources such as .gov.uk or NHS.uk websites. Make sure you type the addresses in and don’t click on links in emails
  • Only purchase goods from legitimate retailers and take a moment to think before parting with money or personal information
  • Know who you’re dealing with - if you need help, talk to someone you know or get in touch with your local Council on the numbers below
  • Protect your financial information, especially from people you don’t know. Never give your bank card or PIN to a stranger

We know it can be difficult to know who to trust, and we hope this information helps you to feel more informed and more able to protect yourself against these types of scams.

If you’re online or have a mobile phone Facebook Community groups and WhatsApp groups can be great ways of staying in touch with those around you.
