What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

Operation 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.

ASB - Pocklington

Patrols are continuing around Al Saints Church in Pocklington and we are asking people not to gather in the area where anti social behaviour (ASB) has occurred. We have also had several reports of ASB and damage around the area near to the skate park in West Green, the play park on Broadmanor, the Rugby Club, the Football Club and Primrose Wood.  Patrols will now be monitoring this location on a regular basis.

Scam Awareness

  • Covid-19 Vaccine Text Scam Alert

We have been alerted to a highly believable scam which starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the vaccine and to click on the link in the text message.  The user is then led to a webpage, which looks very convincing and asks them to complete some details, in order for them to be able to apply for the vaccine.

The details asked for:

Name
Address
Date of birth
Proof of address
Card payment details

With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue, as fraudsters continue to take advantage of the rollout to some many people.  Please follow the link below for furher information:

Catalytic Convertor thefts - how to protect your vehicle

We are warning motorists to be on their guard following a number of reports in the last month of catalytic convertors being stolen in our areas (including Goole, Pocklington and North Cave areas).

While all cars are potentially at risk, thieves are most likely to target hybrids, where the catalytic convertor is used less and the metals are less likely to be damaged, or vehicles with a higher ground clearance , such as van and SUV's.

We are investigating all the reports we have received and are following up a number of lines of enquiry.  In the meantime, we want to help prevent further thefts from occurring, so please pass on our advice to anyone you think may be at risk and, if you see anyone acting suspiciously, please call us on our non-emergency 101 number.

Among the steps you can take to protect your vehcile are:

- Speak to your local garage about having suitable locks or guards fitted.  They can also advise you on getting your catalytic convertor security marked to make it harder for thieves to dispose of.

- Park your car in a locked garage where possible. If that isn't an option, park in a well lit and busy area.

- Park with your exhaust close to walls, fences or high kerbs, which will make it harder to access.

- Catalytic convertors are at the front of your vehicle, so park facing walls or other vehicles where possible, which will make it harder to remove.
