Burglary reports

2 reports across Willerby and Kirkella Ward last month, one of which was an attempt made to a property involving two males approaching victims front door and it is believed that they have tried to gain entry before a neighbour banged on the window causing the group to move on.  Another property was entered via an open ground floor window leading to the front room and once inside steal medical equipment and a play station 4 console before making off.  A further 3 reports across Tranby Ward.  A property was entered in the Anlaby area by removing a pane of glass from the rear door and entering, ransacking the property once inside before making off.  Enquiries are ongoing.  Another property in Anlaby was entered via an integral garage door which leads to the dining room, once inside the property is searched and car keys and laptop are taken along with the victim’s vehicle which was parked and secure within the garage.  Finally three unknown males attended a property in Anlaby, once acting as a spotter whilst the other two gained entry to the porch by forcing the front PVC door and using an unknown implement.  They have been disturbed by the occupants and have fled the scene.  Enquiries are underway.

Vehicle crime – Two reports across Willerby and Kirkella Ward during the month of August.  A vehicle had unknown objects thrown by unknown suspect causing damage to the bodywork and another vehicle which was parked secure had all the panels of the driver’s side keyed causing damage to the paintwork.  Meanwhile across Tranby Ward a further 3 reports, two of which are damage related.

Check Your Fob has done its Job! Don’t assume your vehicle is secure – always check doors are locked before you walk away and recheck before you settle down for the night. Consider a faraday pouch to keep your keys/fob safe and never leave them in range of your vehicle – think about keeping them at the other side of the house. Please remove all valuables from vehicle when left unattended and leave the glove-box open and empty to reduce the opportunity of becoming a victim

Shop theft  Just 1 to report across Tranby Ward last month.

Criminal damage 

2 reports across Tranby Ward last month, one of which was damage caused to a garden trellis and lighting by suspect resulting in a community resolution being issued to suspect.  A property was the subject of criminal damage caused to windows after a domestic incident resulting in an adult caution being issued.

Community Priorities for September 2021

As the harvest gets in full swing in our rural areas we are reminding people to keep their properties and equipment safe and secure.  One of the key items targeted by thieves across the country are Tractor GPS and Navigation equipment.  Here are some tips to prevent these being stolen.


Tractor GPS Screens

Remove screens when not in use – ensure they are left in a safe and secure location.  Mark screens using Forensic Marking and use the provided stickers to advertise forensic marking is in use.  Record serial numbers

Tractor GPS Receivers

If not in use, disconnect, remove and secure in a safe location.  Remove from roof if not in use and tractor is being used on road – this will prevent advertising the fact you have a receiver.  Ensure the software is up to date, and marked with security warning stickers.  Record serial numbers.

Please also make sure your device is properly insured as it may need to be a separate item on your insurance, especially once removed from machinery.

We would also advise people to consider installing CCTV, intruder alarms, security lighting and boundary security (entrance gates/fencing) around your property to provide formal surveillance and target harden the most vulnerable areas.

We cannot physically be everywhere at the same time and our communities are our eyes and ears in the countryside.  They know when something they see isn’t right.  We want them to call us about any suspicious activity they see.  Please report this to police immediately in 999 if there is a crime in progress or 101 for no-emergency incidents.

Preventing Residential Burglary

Burglars are often opportunistic thieves who prey on houses and flats. They seek out any opening that they can take advantage of, specifically doors and windows that are left open or unlocked or are easy to force. Please follow a security routine and check windows, doors and vehicles are secure before settling down for the evening. Visit our website for further advice www.humberside.police.uk/information-advice Please continue to report suspicious activity to the Police on 101 and in the event of an emergency – call 999.  During this month patrols from both wards will continue to be out and about providing residents with advice on home security.

Road Safety

As children return to school in September, the Neighbourhood Police Teams top tips for ensuring children and parents are ready for the journey ahead and can stay as safe as possible.

Families are being advised to take to two wheels or travel on foot if they can and plan out journeys to allow extra time as an increase in traffic is expected.

Community Officers have invited families to “rethink how they travel” encouraging all to walk and cycle where possible, especially for families that live within a mile of their school.
