What's Happening In Your Area?


Operation Galaxy

Operation Galaxy has been running throughout the Humberside force area since May and has had quite a bit of media coverage on Hull Live and also Look North. There has been some fantastic results in all areas of the force and University Ward is no exception.

A warrant was executed on The Quadrant under the theft act and although nothing was found at this particular address, another warrant at a linked address on Orchard Park Estate was carried out at the same time and a stolen quad bike was recovered. The occupant at the address was subsequently arrested.

After follow up visits around the area by the local community team a further 35 residents signed up for My Community Alerts.

A warrant under the Misuse of Drugs Act was executed at an address on Cranbrook Avenue where a large cannabis factory was found inside the house. Whilst at the property officers also noticed suspicious activity at the neighbouring address and were able to gain entry where another cannabis factory was located along with a male inside the property. This male was arrested and large amounts of cannabis and equipment removed from the addresses. These drugs will no longer be able to be distributed by the dealers on the streets of Hull.

Whilst on routine patrols around the area officers stopped a group of youths and one member of the group was issued a cannabis warning after being found in possession of a small amount of cannabis.

If you were not visited by an officer but are interested in siging up for My Community Alert to receive information about incidents/events in your area then please follow the links on the webpage. Also if you have concerns about suspicious activity in your area then please report this to police or alternatively anonymously via Crimestoppers.


Traffic Calming Measures - Hall Road

A section of Hall road, from the roundabout with Cottingham Road to just past Hall Road Academy is now a 20mph zone and work has been carried out installing speed ramps and new signage on the road. This follows investigations carried out by Hull City Council in relation to reports of speeding in the area. 


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 or 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.
