2. Preventing Residential Burglary 
3. Reduce rural crime 
4. Road Safety

1. Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community  

Residents in the Bilton Community and local parish meetings have raised issues about anti-social behaviour around Highfield Crescent following reports of a group of youths drinking alcohol and discarding litter in the fields to the rear of the Primary School.

The Holderness Neighbourhood Policing Team works with our key partners and the community to reduce anti-social behaviour and the anti-social use of motor vehicles. We provide proactive responses to reports of anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhood Area and are constantly reviewing our patrol strategy to address this. We are working hard with partners to address this and ensure our market towns and rural communities are a safe place to live and work


2. Preventing Residential Burglary
Unfortunately, as mentioned in the crime updates, Officers are investigating into a number of burglaries and thefts from vehicles which is believed to have occurred overnight Friday 2 July  and Saturday 3 July 2021 around the new development area of  Skirlaugh Village.
Burglars are often opportunistic thieves who prey on houses and flats. They seek out any opening that they can take advantage of, specifically doors and windows that are left open or unlocked or are easy to force. Please follow a security routine and check windows, doors and vehicles are secure before settling down for the evening. Visit our website for further advice www.humberside.police.uk/information-advice Please continue to report suspicious activity to the Police on 101 and in the event of an emergency – call 999

During this month members of the Holderness Policing Team will continue be out and about providing residents with advice on home security. 
3. Reduce rural crime

As with all rural locations, the Holderness area suffer with theft of farming machinery and vehicles along with poaching activity like hare coursing. 


Throughout this year we have worked with volunteers on the Rural Watches across Holderness to deter rural criminality. In addition we will utilise all the available technology, crime prevention techniques and assistance from the Rural Crime Team to deter and detect crime. 

4. Road Safety
As with most other areas, road safety is something in which we can improve upon in our rural communities.

We hold regular proactive road safety campaigns with the Highways Authority which include speed enforcement in hot spot locations. 

As children return to school in September, the Neighbourhood Police Teams top tips for ensuring children and parents are ready for the journey ahead and can stay as safe as possible.

Families are being advised to take to two wheels or travel on foot if they can and plan out journeys to allow extra time as an increase in traffic is expected.

Community Officers have invited families to “rethink how they travel” encouraging all to walk and cycle where possible, especially for families that live within a mile of their school. 

Make sure you’ve checked out our top tips before setting off on the journey to school. These include:

Map it out
If you’re travelling to a new school, trying a different route or getting to school on foot or bike, there’s help available to plan and prepare for your journey.
Allow extra time
There will be more traffic on the road so when you plan your route, allow extra time to get there (including for any arrangements that specific schools might have in place).
You could test out your route to make sure you’re prepared.

Plan for the end of the journey too
If necessary to drive, park safely and where possible consider parking further away and walking the last five minutes of the journey. This will help reduce congestion and pollution around the school gates and allow families to maintain social distancing.

Gear up and be prepared
For those taking the journey on two wheels, bikes need to have had all of the relevant safety checks either at home or can be taken to a cycle hub. Children need to remember a helmet!
For families where this might be the first time that children are getting back in the car, children need to have the correct car seat.

Stay alert on the road
Help children to stay alert and remind them of the road safety messages when using the road. Using a mobile phone or other distractions such as listening to music should be avoided to ensure that they can look, listen and be as safe as possible on the journey to school.                      



Horse Watch Relaunches in Holderness            

Holderness is a fabulous part of East Riding of Yorkshire for the horse rider and owner, whether it be galloping along the shore, trekking through the countryside, or training the competitive horse.

It is a sad fact that horses, trailers, lorries, and tack can occasionally disappear without a trace, but now, the local team for Holderness are relaunching Horse Watch to try and combat this problem.

Being a member of Horse Watch can help to protect you from crime by giving you access to security advice and information which will help you to keep your equine and tack safe. You will also receive information on equine related incidents from across the East Riding so you can be aware of any suspicious activity that may occur.

PCSO Darren Bainton said: “Equine crime can be soul-destroying, and that is not just down to the financial loss, but also the emotional distress it causes.   Everyone is a potential target for thieves but getting a Horse Watch membership allows us to pass on the advice that you need to help you prevent crime."

“We offer security advice on all aspects of horse ownership and yard security, whether you own just one horse or a competition yard.”

How you can help

Your local Neighbourhood Policing Team appreciates the importance of being in the right place, at the right time, for the right reasons to reassure the public, improve public confidence and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour in the area in which we all live and work. We encourage all residents to call and report any issues where they live so that we can deal with any issues and also step up our patrols in the area. 

If you feel that there are other issues affecting you or your local community that should be given priority, please inform your local councillors or your Neighbourhood Policing Team.
The number to call for non-emergency issues is 101
