We encourage everyone to follow the Government guidance and #StayHomeSaveLives. For this reason we will not be holding any more engagement events with our communities for the foreseeable future. Whilst we love seeing you, these events are non-essential in the current circumstances.   

You will still see us out and about as we continue to do our job and keep our communities safe. As always there are a number of ways you can get in touch with us if you need us.

Stay informed through our social media channels, find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  Don't forget to also sign up to My Community Alert and receive community alerts directly to your devices.

For incidents that don’t require an immediate response call our non-emergency 101 line. You can also report non-emergency crimes online via our reporting portal. In an emergency always dial 999.

What's Happening In Your Area?


Anti–Social Behaviour: Ward Area

We understand the community are concerned regarding Anti-Social Behaviour.

We have been working closely with local partners to identify those responsible whilst also seeing that changes are made to the local environment so as to design out the problems.

When suspects have been identified, proportionate action is being taken to hold them to account while also diverting them away from causing further issues. 

This work has assisted in an overall decrease of ASB reports. This is a great success and could not have been achieved without our partner agencies and the community as a whole.

We would also encourage the community to report any issues by calling Humberside Police on 101 (non-emergency number) or Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.

Humber Talking

Humber Talking is a way of connecting with the people we serve and understanding what’s important to them.

We have been visiting over 6500 households in the Southcoates Ward area and asking a number of questions.

For those we have been unable to speak to directly, information has been made available on how to take part in the survey. This has enabled us to find out how the community feel about the area and what is affecting your community.

On a very positive note the community are telling us that the Southcoates ward in a good area to live in, which is quiet, friendly with good amenities and good neighbours.

On another very positive note, the vast majority of residents have also informed us that they have no issues and believe that we be there if they needed us.

You said, we did.

Although very positive comments from the Southcoates Community, we are not resting on our laurels. We still of lots of work to do as we continue to serve our communities to make them safer and stronger.

We have also received feedback in relation to issues that are affecting the community. These issues have ranged from Anti-Social Behaviour, Speeding, drugs use and parking issues.

Regarding Anti-Social Behaviour we have recently dealt with a number of individuals both by way of prosecution and working with our partners. We have also been running Operation Yellowfin which has targeted issues involving individuals on motor cycles. We have seized a number of vehicles and prosecuted a number of individuals. I am pleased to inform you that we have seen over a 10% reduction in ASB.

Regarding speeding we have been working with our partners in order to reduce and education motorists. We have been working with local schools and involving the students in specific operations to educate motorists. This has been received very positively by both the schools and motorists.

We continue to develop intelligence and execute warrants regarding the use of drugs.

Our partners are aware of issues regarding parking in the Southcoates area and they are working hard to improve this issue where they can.

Speeding: Bilsdale Grove

We understand the community are concerned regarding vehicles speeding in the area.

We are working with our partner agencies to access the area and take appropriate action.

We have recently undertaken a project involving local schools and the pupils. This has involved the Police and the pupils (working safely together) in stopping vehicles and offering safety advice.

This has been a great success, evidenced by the feedback from the schools and those individuals stopped.

Further work/consultation will be starting in 2020 in relation to traffic calming measures.

Planned work on traffic calming measures on Bilsdale Grove have been delayed due to the current COVID Pandemic


Drug use:  Ward Area

We are aware of a number of reports of drug use in the ward area.

We are working with partner agencies and are patrolling the area on a regular basis.

We will continue to monitor and patrol the area and take appropriate action.

We would also encourage the community to report any issues by calling Humberside Police on 101 (non-emergency number) or CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.
