Community Safety News for June 2022

We have recently attended an incident involving the destruction of a bat roost following building works.  All bat species & their roosts are legally protected by both domestic & international legislation.  This means you may be committing a criminal offence if you damage or destroy a place used by bats for breeding or resting (roosts) even if bats are not occupying the roost at the time.      Guidance around conservation actions for property owners is available via the Bat Conservation Trust Website. 

During the night of 12th May officers teamed up with Little Weighton Farm watch and Humberside Fire drone for night time rural crime & ASB patrols, following reports of vehicles being driven across fields and criminal damage to gateways.

As a result of our patrols, one male was dealt with for cannabis possession & another male arrested for drug driving.
