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


Neighbourhood Policing Team pages COVID update/intro:

We begin 2021 with a sense of renewed optimism looking forward to the year ahead and the opportunities it may present.  We remain very aware of the impact that the current Covid-19 public health emergency is placing on individuals, families and our communities as a whole across Southcoates Ward.  With the ever changing situation, we remain resolute in our commitment, effort and energy, continuing to plan and work with community groups and our partners across the Public Sector, to reduce the impact of Covid-19 on our local communities and to keep you all safe.

In Southcoates Ward the vast majority of you have been doing what’s right for a long time, following the government guidelines to help reduce the spread of Coronavirus and keeping one another safe. We continue to use the 4E’s approach to policing Covid-19; engage, explain, encourage and finally enforce the regulations where applicable. You may have seen on our social media channels and in the local media that in recent weeks we have seen an increase in house parties and larger gatherings. Where there have been clear breaches of the regulations we have taken proportionate and necessary action, issuing appropriate fines to individuals. As vaccination roll out continues across health care settings in (area/s) you will see your local officers in attendance, providing reassurance around key vaccination sites.

Regardless of Covid 19, our policing focus remains to protect the most vulnerable, keep people safe and to respond to serious crime. Our neighbourhood policing activity will continue to be focused on maintaining our core operational duties and delivering our Neighbourhood Policing Strategy. The provision of highly visible and locally connected neighbourhood policing teams remain the foundation of our force operating model.
