What's Happening In Your Area?

Details

Recent Burglaries on ward area

There have been several reported burglaries recently on a neighbouring ward area. There has also been an increase in vehicle theft, particulalry mopeds.

 Remember to keep your own property secure to reduce the opportunity for thieves. Whenever possible lock your doors and windows in unoccupied rooms even if you are in the house.

Please be reminded to lock your doors and to keep any security gates closed and locked at all timesWe also advise residents not to leave high value items on display as they may entice thieves.

To assist us in identifying stolen property please consider property marking high value items using Smartwater or UV pens.  You are also advised to register property at www.immobilise.com which is a free on-line property register used by police forces nationwide to reunite stolen goods to their owners. All you have to do is register on-line and then upload properties electrical items serial numbers.

Crime Prevention Advice:

  • Keep all the doors and windows locked.
  • Make your property appear occupied, even when you are out. You could use timers to turn on lights and have blinds set to prevent seeing inside, which may confirm a house is unoccupied.
  • If an offender approaches your house, make sure nothing blocks the view of them, such as garden hedges or trees and make sure the area is well lit so they are easily noticed.
  • Keep valuables in the home out of general view from the opportunist burglar. They may look through windows when deciding if the home contains property they consider worth stealing. Use blinds, nets or other window coverings to prevent this.
  • Fit a burglar alarm with visible, deterrent bell boxes front and rear and keep the system maintained.

Anti-social behaviour

There have been an increase in calls for service recently regarding anti social behaviour on King George V playing fields that seem to involve groups of youths.

We are working closely with partner agencies to try and tackle this issue and patrols will be increased in the area. If you witness any ASB whilst in the park please report this via 101.

Work is ongoing with Hull City Council ASB team and the ward Councillors for improviements to be made to the park. ASB officers and police will be present in and around the park in the coming weeks. Please do reprt any issues so that these can be looked into. 

SCAMMERS

Heres some advice on 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,  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.
