Coronovirus (Covid-19) update

We encourage everyone to follow the Government guidance and #StayHomeSaveLives. For this reason we will not be holding any more engagement events with our communities for the foreseeable future. Whilst we love seeing you, these events are non-essential in the current circumstances.   

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.

Humbertalking has set our priorities, this month we are to:

Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community
We have recently seen an increase in the number of anti-social behaviour reports which has had a detrimental impact on people who live and work here in our community.
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.



Reduce rural crime
As with all rural locations, the Holderness area suffer with theft of farming machinery and vehicles.
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. In addition to local officers our patrols are routinely bolstered by specialist Officers from our Roads Policing, and Operations department.


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

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


Preventing Residential Burglary
With the clocks set to be put back an hour at the end of the month, police in Holderness are encouraging residents to make sure they don’t ‘fall back’ with their home security too. 

“Darker nights provide thieves with an opportunity to work with less chance of being discovered. There are some simple precautions we can all take to reduce the chance of us falling victim to criminals.”

To keep your home safe after dark:

- Use timer switches on lights to make it look as if your home is occupied.

- Ensure all doors and windows are secure when you leave and when you go to bed.

- If possible use security lighting at the front and back of your property.

- Make sure all garden tools and ladders are locked away when not being used.

- Use a good quality lock on any garden sheds and outhouses.

- Make a note of all makes, models and serial numbers of expensive items in your home.

- Create a FREE and secure inventory of all your personal property at www.immobilise.com

- If you notice anything suspicious in your neighbourhood report it on 101.

During this month members of the Holderness Policing Team will be out and about providing residents and visitors with advice on home security.
