What's Happening In Your Area?


We welcome our new Sergeant to the team.  PS 1649 Chris Whitehead is an experienced neighbourhood policing sergeant who will now be working in our area.  You will shortly be seeing him out and about and getting involved in community events and partnership working.

Community Priorities for June 2021      

High visibility patrols and Anti Social Behaviour 
Officers from the Holderness team will be continuing to keep a high visibility presence in your local towns and villages keeping neighbourhoods safe from ASB.

Each month we meet (Virtually) 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. 

Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to their community or to their environment. This 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.

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.

We were informed about issues on the Playing Field in Thorngumbald with large groups of youths congregating, suspected to be drinking alcohol and leaving a lot of litter in the play park area including broken glass.  We liaised with Thorngumbald Parish Council and did a joint patrol and spoke to residents and children.  The Parish Council dealt with the litter and continue to make regular checks.  We have been patrolling the area on most evenings and are pleased to report the matter seems to have calmed down with only a small number of youths now respectfully using the facilities.

Operation Galileo - Poaching

We have received a few reports of potential poaching in our area. This is now a priority in the Holderness area with alocated wildlife officers patrolling on high demand times over the weekends. Please report any suspicious activiy as poachers cause suffering to wildlife and damage to property and crops. 


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.

Humber Talking

We are currently knocking on doors in Thorngumbald to speak to residents and conduct a short survey to get a better picture of what it is like for them living in the village and give them the opportunity to raise any concerns.
