Good news

We begin 2021 with a sense of renewed optimism looking forward to the year ahead and the opportunities it may present. We remain very aware of the impact that the current Covid-19 public health emergency is placing on individuals, families and our communities as a whole across University ward area. With the ever changing situation, we remain resolute in our commitment, effort and energy, continuing to plan and work with community groups and our partners across the Public Sector, to reduce the impact of Covid-19 on our local communities and to keep you all safe. In University Ward the vast majority of you have been doing what’s right for a long time, following the government guidelines to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus and keeping one another safe. We continue to use the 4E’s approach to policing Covid-19; engage, explain, encourage and finally enforce the regulations where applicable. You may have seen on our social media channels and in the local media that in recent weeks we have seen an increase in house parties and larger gatherings. Where there have been clear breaches of the regulations we have taken proportionate and necessary action, issuing appropriate fines to individuals. As vaccination roll out continues across health care settings in (area/s) you will see your local officers in attendance, providing reassurance around key vaccination sites. Regardless of Covid 19, our policing focus remains to protect the most vulnerable, keep people safe and to respond to serious crime. Our neighbourhood policing activity will continue to be focused on maintaining our core operational duties and delivering our Neighbourhood Policing Strategy. The provision of highly visible and locally connected neighbourhood policing teams remain the foundation of our force operating model.

UPDATED - Anti-social behavior by youths on motorbikes

Following on from our update regarding the motorbikes riding anti socially across the Orchard Park Estate. Over the last month officers have seized a number of bikes who have been riding both anti-socially and/or iligally. 

Whilst this is also a hard problem to target due to the dangers involved we do continue to work with local residents, local authorities and other organisations locally and regionally to target this offenders. 

More recently we have managed to recover a number of stolen motorcycles and indentify the offenders responsible. 

One offender has been charged with two counts of taking without the owners consent and one count of theft of motorcycle following his release from prison. We are please to inform you he has recieved a 6 months prison sentence for these offences.

Another suspect who also recently left prison around the same time has been dealt with a string of offences and has also been re-committed to a young offenders insitute. 

Following a number of reports from members of the public about groups of off-road motorcycles gathering on green land we have spent many shifts identifying those responsible and have also seized bikes from those responsible.

We have had great success and this shows as it appears that are less incidents reported. #OpYellowfin officers are routinely patrolling the area in unmarked cars, cycles and foot patrols. 

The operation will continue.

Please continue to report incidents involving motorbikes!

Two arrested following search warrants in North Hull

The Neighbourhood Policing Team conducted three search warrants on Thursday 4 February, which lead to two men being arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled drug with intent to supply.

Upon searching two properties, one on Ellerburn Avenue and the other on Ripley Close, officers discovered and seized, a quantity of amphetamine, cannabis, cash and mobile phones.

The two men remain in our custody whilst we progress our investigations.

PC 515 BARLEY, Neighbourhood Beat Officer in North Hull, says: “These warrants have been a step in the right directon to targeting organised crime and the long standing anti-social behaviour on the estate.

“We know how frustrating this is for local residents and it is a priority within our force. We want everyone to feel safe within their own homes and the Force area.

“We regularly call on the support of our communities, so if you think you may have any information relating to anti-social behaviour or drug related crime in your area, please come forward and tell us.

“You can pass information onto us by calling our non-emergency number 101, or if you would prefer to stay anonymous, please call the independent charity Crimestopers on 0800 555 111.”

Message from Chief Supt Darren Downs

Showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon, Operation Galaxy and the Hull North Neighbourhood Policing Team have been tackling issues of anti-social behaviour and related criminality head on, making over 100 arrests in the last two months.

But the challenge faced is greater than just being able to ‘arrest out of it’, as Chief Superintendent Darren Downs, who is also the Hull and East Yorkshire divisional commander, reflects on this.

He said: “Clearly antisocial behaviour is a challenge for us. There are lots of areas of the city experiencing antisocial behaviour and it’s something we do a tremendous amount of work in trying to reduce and trying to reassure our communities.

“At the start of October, Op Galaxy and the Neighbourhood team intensified their proactive action targeting those at the centre of anti-social behaviour and crime reports in North Hull.

“We’ve upped officer numbers in the area, executed drugs warrants, stopped and searched a number of vehicles and individuals, and have taken a number of high harm offenders off the streets.

“The action has been specifically looking to target organised crime groups and those at the centre of anti-social behaviour, including those frequently breaching the Covid-19 regulations. Most importantly, we’ve been disrupting those causing the community the most harm.

“The team have been regularly updating the public about this work on our local social media pages and My Community Alert. It’s been pleasing to see so much positive feedback come in on the back of this and it’s important to us that the community know what we’re up to.

“Crime levels for the ward are now at the lowest for this time of year since before 2017, with crime over the past three weeks down 27% compared with before the intensification period. Offences such as burglary, criminal damage, vehicle theft, shop theft, drugs and anti-social behaviour have all seen significant sustained decreases.

“In the first eight weeks of this action, we’ve arrested over 100 people, executed ten drugs warrants, conducted over 100 stop and searches (individuals and vehicles), issued 43 fixed penalty notices for Covid breaches and seized four vehicles.

“Of those arrests, 38 have been charged and we’re already seeing some of those receiving fines or custodial sentences after being processed through the courts.”

Anti-social behavior by youths on motorbikes

This is an issue we are seeing across the general area of Orchard Park. This includes reports of noise nuisance, riding on the footpaths and driving without insurance. Also there has been incidents involving the motorbikes being used in other crimes. including theft from motor vehicles and cycle thefts.

We have had great success and this shows as it appears that are less incidents reported. #OpYellowfin officers are routinely patrolling the area in unmarked cars, cycles and foot patrols. 

The operation will continue.

Please continue to report incidents involving motorbikes!

Anti-social behaviour - Hall Road

Group of young people who are congregating along Hall Road. They are intimidating local residents and causing damage.

Where criminal offences are identified individuals are actively targeted and dealt with through appropriate means, either through the criminal justices system or restorative practices.

This is a multi-agency approach so we are working with the council to combat these issues. We have made numerous arrests and seeking criminal behavior orders on the most prolific offenders.

We are working in partnership with the youth offending service and this has seen a reduction in youths causing anti social behaviour.

Drugs, cultivation and dealing

We have now launched operation Galaxy - which is a specialised team that are tackling drug dealing, cultivation and use. Please continue to report drug related matters. There have been numerous warrants executed in the North Hull area and several people have been arrested.

The neighbourhood team take an active part within these operations.

We will continue to target criminals and build up intelligence to secure warrants. We also have plain clothed officers on foot and cycles conducting stop searches on people suspected of dealing drugs.
