What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

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

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.

Dear Resident

We are writing to you with regards to how you can access support and safeguard yourself against scams during the coronavirus outbreak.

Unfortunately not everyone out there is trustworthy and some people will try to take advantage of this unusual situation our society is facing and try to exploit people.

Listed below are some of the scams that you could be approached with, but please note that criminals and their scams come in all shapes and sizes, and they may contact you at the door, by phone, post or online:

Be aware of people offering miracle cures or vaccines for coronavirus – there is no specific treatment for coronavirus (COVID-19)
People impersonating healthcare workers, claiming to be offering ‘home-testing’ for coronavirus – this is a scam and these kits are not currently available to buy
Emails saying that you can get a refund on taxes, utilities or similar - they are usually bogus and they are just trying to obtain your bank and personal details
Fake products available to buy online that advise they can protect you or cure coronavirus - these will not help and are just designed to take your money
Mobile phone applications that claim to give you updates on the virus but instead, they lock your phone and demand a ransom
Calls from people purporting to be from your bank, or from the police, asking for your bank details over the phone
People offering to do you’re shopping or collecting medication and asking for money upfront and then disappearing

To avoid becoming a victim of a scam, we’ve please follow our tips and advice below:

Be cautious and listen to your instincts. Don’t be afraid to hang up, bin it, delete it or shut the door
Take your time; don’t be rushed
If someone claims to represent a charity, ask them for ID. Be suspicious of requests for money up front. Check with family and friends before accepting offers of helps if you are unsure
If you are online, be aware of fake news and use trusted sources such as .gov.uk or NHS.uk websites. Make sure you type the addresses in and don’t click on links in emails
Only purchase goods from legitimate retailers and take a moment to think before parting with money or personal information
Know who you’re dealing with - if you need help, talk to someone you know or get in touch with your local Council on the numbers below
Protect your financial information, especially from people you don’t know. Never give your bank card or PIN to a stranger

We know it can be difficult to know who to trust, and we hope this information helps you to feel more informed and more able to protect yourself against these types of scams.

If you’re online or have a mobile phone Facebook Community groups and WhatsApp groups can be great ways of staying in touch with those around you.
