Retail Crime – South West Holderness
Historically we have seen a spike in this area of crime at this time of the year. Hedon specifically has seen a rise in shop thefts and the team will be patrolling the town centre as part of OPERATION YULETIDE which is our annually proactive patrolling of the retail hot spot areas. As part of shop watch officer’s work with businesses to reduce opportunities for criminals to commit thefts.
Larger Commercial businesses have also been targeted. I would ask that if any of you see anything suspicious and I include vehicle details in this please let us know. Hedon in particular has many small retail outlets and crime at anytime of the year is financially and emotionally impactive, even more so at Christmas. The Holderness region has some of the most reductive crime prevention tools such as CCTV pleases be assured that with partnership help we will catch these offenders. Any intelligence regarding this issue can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers 0800 555 111 or Humberside Police 101.
Updates - Officers have and will be patrolling hot spot areas this month. We have received kind feedback already, we known that you appreciate the reassurance of seeing an officer patrolling the streets. I will share the results of our crime reduction measures next month.
