What's Happening In Your Area?


Casualty Reduction Operation - Roads Policing

Roads Policing Officers have been in the area working on a casualty reduction operation.  Several drivers have been dealt with for an array of offences including insecure loads, seat belt, insurance, number plate and license offences.  A driver was also given a warning under the Police Reform Act 2002 for using a vehicle in manner causing alarm, distress or annoyance.  Roads Policing are part of our policing family dedicated to keeping you safer on our roads.

ASB around Ferry Lane & Market Place, Snaith

Reports of youths congregating and causing a nuisance along with issues of littering and graffiti and general Anti-Social Behaviour at Ferry Lane, Snaith and in Market Place Snaith. Also reports of youths on motorbikes on Ferry lane Snaith. Allegedly the riders are speeding, generally causing a nuisance and riding without helmets. We urge residents to report any ASB in the area to Humberside Police via 101.


Local officers have been conducting high visibility patrols in the area and anyone caught engaging in such activities will be dealt with jointly with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.  We have also met with local councilors to discuss the ongoing issues in the area.

Throughout August and September we  have been been holding street surgeries in Snaith. These have been high visibility patrols starting at the  fire station in the Market place. Along with the ward councilors and the ASB Officer Nikki Moulton, we have been targeting ASB hot spot areas and speaking to residents about their concerns.  We have been successful in identifying some of the youths causing issues and are dealing with them via our ASB process. On Thursday 17th October 2019 between 18:00-19:30 hours  Nikki Moulton will be at the Snaith Town council offices on Market Place. We can discuss any concerns about ASB in the area and how we can help to reduce this.

The next street surgeries in Snaith are on the following dates:

Thursday 10th October 2019 18:00-20:00 hours

Friday 25th October 2019 18:00-20:00 hours

Monday 4th November 2019 18:00-20:00 hours

Friday 22nd November 2019 18:00-20:00 hours


Please feel free to join us.

We are also in the process of finding a suitable location for the teenagers  to gather  on an evening.  There is currently no youth club in Snaith and after talking to the youths this is something they would like and will help to get them off the streets with the dark nights looming. If anyone knows of some where suitable within the town centre then please let us know.


Sugar Mill Pounds

Ongoing issues with a group of young people causing issues on the nature reserve. Reports include damage to trees/properties and also reports of wildlife being killed. Youth have been congregating in a derelict property which is located 100 yards from the ponds.


The derelict cottage has now been made secure with steel covers. This will be monitored, and if these are damaged then the council will brick the entry  and access points instead. Since this has been completed ASB has dropped in the area. 

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 to 8 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.
