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.

What's Happening In Your Area?


June Crime 

In the last week of June we have had five thefts of outboard motors from Hornsea Boat Compound on South Promenade. It appears the suspects have used a ladder to scale the metal fencing of the locked compound. We are appealing for any other victims of this type of crime to come forward as it may be the case that during the lockdown period boat owners have not checked their property. We would like to record the true number of stolen items. If anyone has seen or heard anything suspicious please contact Humberside Police on 101. Of note a few days after the Hornsea thefts further outboard motors were stolen further up the coast at Wilsthorpe.

In the last month we have had only one incidence of criminal damage which occurred within a care home environment, when a resident broke a window after throwing a brick at it, the Investigation is still ongoing.

Hornsea Seafront and the surrounding areas of Mappleton and Cowden are experiencing an influx of visitors with the warm weather and the easing of lockdown rules. We are getting regular complaints from local residents about parking. Please, when visiting these areas, park sensibly and considerately without causing obstruction to driveways, footpaths and access for other road users.

Vehicle Crime - 

Theft of and from motor vehicles.Vehicles continue to be targeted by both organised and opportunist thieves. Officers continue to target vulnerable areas and where possible offer crime prevention advice. This will be an ongoing priority over the coming months. Visitors to the area may well fall victim if basic crime prevention measures are not in place. Please ensure even on very warm days when parked up, windows in vehicles are closed, doors locked and no valuables are left on display


This is at the core of what Neighbourhood Policing is about.  Vulnerability is not just something that we need to address in terms of protecting people from others, although this is of course part of it.  Vulnerability can lead to offending behaviour, through addiction to drink or drugs, where behaviour is altered or through lack of opportunities leading to poor life choices and crime or Anti-Social Behaviour.


Humber Talk was due to re-start on a regular basis on June 2nd but after consideration it has been decided that we will wait another few weeks to begin our surveys again. We will still be adhering to Social distancing guidance when we do re-commence and will not be entering houses but speaking to members of the public who want to take part on their doorsteps.  In the meantime if you would like to participate in the survey and highlight any issues you think the Police should be dealing with please visit the website Your responses help us better understand our area and prioritise issues to be tackled.

Op Galileo 

Officers from across the East Riding of Yorkshire area continue to engage in the prevention and detection of wildlife offences and poaching across the ward area. Officers will be using intelligence, new equipment and volunteers in helping to identify offenders and obtaining evidence to form prosecution cases.

If you see people with dogs in fields, and if safe to do so, please ring 101 and report the incident.

Operation Galaxy 

Op Galaxy has focused on proactively tackling crime and those responsible for it with numerous arrests made and illegal goods seized.

Please take a look at the news section on our website for frequent full updates and details of arrests made.
