What's Happening In Your Area?



Keep your keys and vehicles safe and don’t be a “2 in 1” Victim The term “2 in 1 burglary” is used when there are two offences in one, for example when vehicle keys have been stolen in order for offenders to take a car/van from outside a property. These crimes have usually been committed overnight and often the offenders have gained access to a house by forcing entry or by even using cat flaps and letter boxes to put an instrument into the house to unhook car keys from key hangers near to doors. Here are some simple security measures that can be taken:

  • Keep all keys safe and out of sight. Never hang them near to doors where they could be taken through a letterbox or near an open window.
  • Never leave house or car keys in an obvious place like a handbag or key cupboard.
  • If you’ve got a garage, use it rather than leaving your vehicle on the driveway or the roadside.
  • Always keep your vehicle locked and secured. If your car doesn't have an alarm/immobilizer then consider getting one fitted.
  • Consider extra security such as a steering wheel lock. (Steering locks and gear level locks are often all that is needed to deter a thief as they simply don't want the hassle of breaking in and trying to get them undone.)
  • Never leave any property in your car or van when it is unattended. It takes criminals seconds to smash a window and grab something. Tools and stock items should always be removed from the vehicle overnight – displaying signage to say 'No Tools Left in Vehicle'
  • There is also a growing trend for vans to be targeted, so please keep valuable tools in your home if you are self-employed or at your place of work. It is clear that offenders are looking at locations and vehicles prior to coming back to commit the crimes. This could simply be someone looking around an area during the day, someone pretending to do door to door sales, or someone coming to your home on another pretext. So, if you get a “cold caller” ask yourself: 1. Is the caller coming to my home in any way suspicious? 2. Is the caller paying attention to my car or asking me questions about it? If so, give Humberside Police a call on the Non Emergency number 101 to report your concerns.



Since the lockdown there have been more people purchasing bicycles. There has been a slight increase in bike theft which normally occurs when the bikes are left insecure and opportunists take advantage of this. Please make sure you secure your bike at all times to reduce the risk of yours being taken.

When we are out on patrol we often see bikes left in gardens and outside local shops with no locks on. It only takes a few seconds for it to be taken so please be aware and do not risk becoming a victim.


There have recently been several incidents in the village of Rawcliffe where vehicles have been broken into and property stolen. Please be vigilant and make sure that nothing is left in your vehicle overnight and your vehicle is secured. Good practice is to leave the glove box open and remove the parcel shelf. By doing this you are displaying to any opportunist that there is nothing in your vehicle of any value.


There have been an increase in incidents of youths causing an annoyance in Snaith especially on the Ben Bailey Estate area. Through social media, house 2 house, partnership working and speaking to residents we have names of those allegedly involved. We have been visiting these addresses and spoken to those identified. We are still in the process of speaking to the remainder. Please report on 101 the non-emergency number if you are experiencing problems still. In this way a log can be created which will enable us to have a true reflection of the issues and patrol accordingly. Please do not post directly onto social media without informing us.

Coronavirus Track & Trace Scams Advice

People to remain alert for scams during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

Be aware of a growing trend of criminals taking advantage of the current Covid-19 crisis to defraud innocent people, including the new NHS Test and Trace service.

The NHS Test and Trace service has been introduced to allow the NHS to trace the spread of the virus, isolate new infections and give early warning if the virus is increasing again.

However, its feared scammers are now making phone calls, sending texts and emails pretending to be from NHS Test and Trace in order to obtain your personal details.

Advice on how to identify a genuine contact tracer from a scammer.

Genuine NHS contact tracers will:

  • call you from 0300 013 5000
  • send you text messages from ‘NHS’
  • ask you to sign into the NHS test and trace contact-tracing website
  • ask for your full name and date of birth to confirm your identity, and postcode to offer support while self-isolating
  • ask about the coronavirus symptoms you have been experiencing
  • ask you to provide the name, telephone number and/or email address of anyone you have had close contact with in the two days prior to your symptoms starting-ask if anyone you have been in contact with is under 18 or lives outside of England.
  • ask if anyone you have been in contact with is under 18 or lives outside of England

Contact tracers will never:

  • ask you to dial a premium rate number to speak to them (for example, those starting 09 or 087)
  • ask you to make any form of payment or purchase a product of any kind
  • ask for any details about your bank account
  • ask for your social media identities or login details, or those of your contacts
  • ask you for any passwords or PINs, or ask you to set up any passwords or PINs over the phone
  • disclose any of your personal or medical information to your contacts
  • provide medical advice on the treatment of any potential coronavirus symptoms
  • ask you to download any software to your PC or ask you to hand over control of your PC, smartphone or tablet to anyone else
  • ask you to access any website that does not belong to the government or NHS

If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or visit the Action Fraud website. If you need advice on anything else, please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline 0344 411 1444

Example of how they do it

One resident has shared a warning claiming that her friend received a scam call on the 3rd June.

The caller, claiming to be an NHS employee, stated that the individual had come into close contact with a person with COVID-19 and had to self-isolate for seven days. The individual was then coerced into giving their address in order to receive a test kit and was asked for their payment details in order to pay a "one off fee" of £500. The so-called scammer then said that there would be penalties for not complying.

It was at this point that the individual then put the phone down and realised that they were being targeted by scammers.

You will only ever be called from the number 0300 013 5000, or you will be texted from “NHS”.
