What's Happening In Your Area?


ASB - Pocklington 

We are aware of the concern among residents about the recent anti-social behaviour by teenagers in All Saints Churchyard in Pocklington. We have identified a number of persons and are patrolling this area on a regular basis.  

Pocklington remains to be a priority area for the policing team.  As such you will see an increase in police presence as officers are tasked daily to perform patrols in the town at the peak times of demand. 

We will be conducting #HumberTalking surveys over the next few months, visiting every household in Pocklington. We are currently covering The Broadmanor Estate.  This will help us to  understand the local issues in more detail and how we, alongside our partners, can assist in alleviating any concerns raised. Updates on actions currently been undertaken and the futures actions will also be discussed.

We ask that you continue to report any issues via the non emergency telephone number: 101 for non- emergency matters or 999 in a emergency. The reports allow us to set priorities and map problem location.

Operation Galileo

Operation Galileo is the Humberside Police response to tackling and reducing the incidents of hare coursing across the force area. Over the next 6 months at this time of year there is a seasonal increase in Wildlife Crime, namely illegal Hare Coursing and Poaching.

As part of Operation Galileo dedicated Patrols will aim to prevent and detect this activity with planned days of action. In addition, local patrols will be conducted to deter this type of criminality and will take positive action to anyone caught committing these offences and use the full extent of the law to disrupt this activity as much as possible.

We would like to encourage the local community to report any issues by calling Humberside Police on 101 (non-emergency number) or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.

Update: Wednesday 22 January 2020

At 12:30 hours on 22 January 2020 officers attended an area of farmland to the north of Hayton substation , A1079 near Pocklington. A dark blue Subaru Forester Estate car was found parked near the solar panels several hundred meters from the A1079. Two males were found in a nearby field who ran away into adjacent woodland. 2 white lurcher dogs were off their leads running in the field. Both males were quickly located and the dogs gathered up. Both were searched Under Section 8 Hunting Act along with the vehicle. Both males were interviewed. Due to the vehicle being driven along a private track a section 59 warning was issued to the driver. They were then escorted from the East Riding via the A1079. Enquires are on-going into the incident.


Teenager sent to prison for 16 years for sex offences

A 19-year-old from Pocklington has been sentenced to 16 years behind bars following a string of sex offences against two schoolgirls. 

Michael Laverick from Denison Road in Pocklington was found guilty in October of this year following a trial at Hull Crown Court. Today he was jailed for each one of his crimes - sentences that will run concurrently.

They are listed below and also include offences related to drugs and violence: 

  • Rape – 12 years 6 months (extended to 16 years)
  • Assault by Penetration – 6 years 
  • Sexual Assault by Penetration – 5 years 6 months
  • Attempt Rape – 5 years 6 months
  • Sexual Assault – 1 year
  • Threats to Kill – 6 months
  • Supply Class A drugs – 6 months
  • Supply Class A drugs – 6 months
  • Breach of suspended sentence – 6 months.
  • Common Assault – 1 month

He is also subject to dangerous offender provisions. If Michael Laverick is released before the 16 year term is up, he will serve the remainder of the sentence on licence. 

Detective Sergeant Stuart Fox from our protecting vulnerable people unit’s child sexual exploitation team said: “This investigation was a complex matter and relied heavily upon the bravery of the victims who came forward and stood up to Michael Laverick. 

“The court heard how he was coercive and sinister, and about the danger he presented to vulnerable people. 

“The court also heard about how the serious level of violent and sexualised offending affected the victims’ mental health in the long term. 

“Not only did Laverick physically and sexually offend against children, he then attempted to intimidate his victims by threatening to cause serious harm. He told them that they wouldn’t be believed and it was their fault it had happened in the first place. 

“Michael Laverick is a dangerous offender and he has received a substantial sentence which should protect the public for a significant period of time, especially those most vulnerable.

“The victims are very grateful that this ordeal is now over and they can look to repair the damage done by this dangerous offender knowing he is serving a lengthy sentence.

“DC Sarah Gladstone was the officer in the case in this investigation and she compliments how brave the victims were in coming forward, explaining exactly what happened along with how the horrific ordeal has had an effect on them. 

“I hope this investigation should encourage other victims to come forward and make a stand against other offenders that have committed horrendous offences against them. 

“It should also act as a deterrent against perpetrators and let them understand exactly what effect their actions have against victims and what potential sentence awaits them when convicted”.
