What's Happening In Your Area?



August  Crime 

In August we have had 3 shop thefts from Tesco, one which resulted in £1500 of goods being taken. There have been a couple of car damages on either side of the town, one vehicle was scratched, the other dented by unknown means. There was a residential burglary from an insecure Summerhouse where 4 expensive road bikes were stolen and finally an attempt theft of a phone by a male who rode by the victim on a push bike

Hornsea seafront and Mappleton continue to be popular areas for visitors. Parking problems persist specifically around Mappleton. There had been parking restrictions in force which ERYC wardens were enforcing but this has now come to an end. As the good weather continues we ask that visitors to this area park considerately and sensibly not blocking paths or driveways and be mindful that farmers are still harvesting and large machinery has to be manoeuvred down the narrow country lanes

We have received complaints from local residents about vehicles behaving in an anti-social manner in and around Hornsea and specifically in Tesco carpark. Hornsea Neighbourhood Police team is increasing patrols of these areas in order to reduce the complaints plus speak to young drivers about their manner of driving. We would like to encourage anyone who witnesses or is victim of Anti-Social Behaviour to come forward and report it to Humberside Police on 101, 999 if it is an emergency, via the online reporting tool or at your local Police Station.

Officers are still offering advice and support with regards to the wearing of face coverings in shops and supermarkets. We have been reassured that the vast majority of the public are complying with the government regulations. We will continue to Engage, Explain and Encourage the use of face coverings however Enforcement does remain an option for us but only as a last resort.

Increase in Public Order Incidents 

Since the re-opening of Pubs and restaurants there has been an increase in reported public order incidents within the town that are directly linked to excessive alcohol consumption. We review CCTV footage for such incidents and will prosecute offenders where appropriate.


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 Talking is set to begin again from 2nd September in Hornsea.  We will be adhering to Social distancing guidance and will not be entering houses but speaking to members of the public who want to take part on their doorsteps.  If you would rather participate online 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.
