Welcome to the  Pickering neighbourhood policing team

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 the Pickering Ward.  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 Pickering 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.

Gower Park - Arson & Anti Social Behaviour

Over recent weeks there has been an increase in arson related offences and anti social behaviour on Gower Park and the surrounding streets.   We understand the community are concerned regarding these incidents.  We are working closely with our partners from Humberside Fire & Rescue Service and Hull City Council to address these issues, identify those involved and make the area a safe place to live and visit.  This includes looking for opportunities to improve the local environment by conducting a visual audit to design out crime.

We have increased our patrols to reassure the community and deter further activity.  This has resulted in a number of arrests and proportionate action being taken against those involved.  We are exploring additional youth engagement opportunities within the park to deter youths from criminal activity.

A number of wheelie bins have been found burnt out on the park.   We have visited residents in the locality of the park advising on bin security.  We urge residents to secure their bins to prevent them becoming a victim of crime. 

Update - January 2022

The local policing team, working closely with our partner agencies have been committed to reducing anti social behaviour (ASB) around Gower Park following an increase in October and November.  We are pleased to report that ASB has significantly decreased in the area and there have been no deliberate fires over the last few weeks.   We continue to patrol the park and surrounding areas for reassurance and to prevent any further disruptive behaviour.

We have utilised dispersal notices to remove those involved in ASB from the area and dealt with a number of youths for various offences who have now been referred to Youth Offending Services.  We have visited the homes of all those identified as being involved in ASB to speak with them and their parents.   Prevention is key when it comes to ASB, particularly when young people are involved, so we have been working closely with schools to deliver key messages around arson and ASB and the consequences this can have on the wider community.  Youth outreach groups are attending the area to encourage positive diversion from crime and ASB.

Anyone with any concerns or who wishes to report an incident should do so on our non-emergency number 101, only using 999 in an emergency.  You can also report to local officers out and about and would encourage you to engage with them.   











Nuisance motorbikes & E-scooters - Anlaby Park Road South.

As a result of conducting Humber Talking surveys in this area residents reported dissatisfaction with persons using motorbikes and e-scooters in an anti social manner. 

We have a planned road calming event coming up in this area.   


We know there is still alot of confusion about e-scooters, including where you can and cannot ride them. If parents or guardians are considering purchasing an e-scooter as a gift - please be aware of the following guidance.

While e-scooters are legally available to purchase, it's currently against the law to ride a privately owned e-scooter in any public place in the UK.  This includes roads, pavements, parks, town centres or canal pathways.  The only place a privately owned e-scooter can be used is on private land.

This is because e-scooters are classified as Personal Light ElectricVehicles (PLEVs) so they are treated as motor vehicles.  As such, if they are used on a road, pavement or public place they are subject to the same legal requirements as any motor vehicle.


Here are the penalties for using a 'motor vehicle' on a road or other public place;

Without insurnace - 6 points, £300 fine, seizure of the vehicle

Without a licence - penalty points, fine, seizure of the vehicle

Failing to comply with construction & use legislation - ranging from non-endorsable fixed penalty to being reported to court for using in a dangerous condition


If officers find anyone using an e-scooter in a public place, the scooter may be seized and the rider reported for any offences.

We  would also urge anyone using an e-scooter legally - i.e on private land- to carefully consider their safety before doing so.  All riders should wear a helmet, younger riders particularly, would benefit from additional protective clothing such as knee and elbow pads to minimise injury.
