Humber Talking is a way of connecting with the people we serve and understanding what’s important to them.
We have been visiting over 5600 households in the Drypool Ward area and asking a number of questions. For those we have been unable to speak to directly, information has been made available on how to take part in the survey. This has enabled us to find out how the community feel about the area and what is affecting your community.
On a very positive note the community are telling us that the Drypool ward in a good area to live in, which is quiet, friendly with good amenities and good neighbours.
On another very positive note, the vast majority of residents have also informed us that they have no issues and believe that we be there if they needed us.
You said, we did.
Although very positive comments from the Drypool Community, we are not resting on our laurels. We still of lots of work to do as we continue to serve our communities to make them safer and stronger.
We have also received feedback in relation to issues that are affecting the community. These issues have mainly related to Anti-Social Behaviour and drug use.
We have seen a decrease in reports of Anti-Social Behaviour since a busy summer period and we will continue to work hard to address this issue. We have recently dealt with a number of individuals both by way of prosecution and working with our partners. We are also patrolling in the areas causing concern.
In relation to drug use, we continue to develop intelligence and have executed a number of drugs warrants in the area and will continue to do so.
We would also encourage the community to report any issues by calling Humberside Police on 101 (non-emergency number) or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
