 Community Priorities for May 2021
High visibility in Withernsea – ASB with Quad Bikes and Motorbikes

The railway lines in Withernsea and waste land around the lines have seen an increase in people riding motorbikes and quadbikes. There is also a nature reserve with many types of wildlife with a pond in the area which the bikes are disturbing. This will run alongside Operation Yellowfin. Anti-social behaviour could be an action by someone else that leaves you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed. It also includes fear of crime or concern for public safety, public disorder or public nuisance. Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to their community or to their environment. 

High visibility patrols-Covid and ASB
With the new covid guide lines in place we are conducting routine checks at all the public houses. They are adhering to the rules and it is nice to see people enjoying themselves again socialising outside, sat down at tables. Throughout May hopefully more restrictions will be lifted and we can get back to some more normality. We will continue to work closely with the local shops and publc houses to assist in any way we can. 

Each month, even during Lock down we meet with via conference calls with our partners from the ASB team, ERYC Housing, Schools, Humberside fire and Rescue and discuss those who are identified as causing issues within the community and those who are vulnerable and repeat victims of crime. Together we work to solve any issues raised. 

If you are experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour, or have any concerns about it, or other community safety issues, you should contact your local council on 01482 393939 or call the non-emergency number, 101. In an emergency, call 999.

You can find out more information on the new Covid 19 lock down rules by checking the Government web site:

Vehicle Safety and Crime
With many of us travelling out and about now covid restrictions are lifting we urge everyone travelling in a vehicle to ensure they do not leave any valuables on show, make sure that no windows are left open and the vehicle is locked. Don’t make it easy pickings for opportunists. 
We are seeing an influx of intelligence from members of the public with regards to drug use and drug dealing. Please continue to send this in. 
The more information we receive the greater the chance we have to act on it.
We would encourage anyone with information about drug dealing to call 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. 
Drug dealers usually operate from busy locations to supply drugs to buyers. Things to look out for are:

• Increased traffic from cars and pedestrians that only stops for short periods.
• Activity or noise that is heavier at weekends, late at night or around paydays.
• People loitering around a property during periods of heavy traffic.
• People waiting in cars before or after visiting a property.
• People parking around the corner or a few streets away and approaching on foot.
• Money or parcels being exchanged through windows, letterboxes or under doors.
• Small packets being exchanged for money
• Debris including tin foil, small plastic bags, ‘wraps’, blister packs or syringes.

Operation Yellowfin
Op Yellowfin is a police operation to tackle the crime associated with motorbikes and off-road bikes.
Front line officers continue to work alongside CID and our intelligence units to gather information about people we suspect of carrying out thefts and motorcycle related nuisance and crime.
