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.

Community Priorities


 Willerby, Kirk Ella, Anlaby and Tranby ward had seen a rise in burglary at the start of January. Since 2 offenders were arrested and charged with multiple offences, the reports have significantly decreased.

Burglary remains a top priority for the neighbourhood team and we are continuing to conduct high visibility patrols, along with covert work, at key times and locations around Anlaby, Tranby, Willerby and Kirk Ella. We are working alongside our colleagues on the response teams, as well as our committed Special Constables, in order to catch offenders and deter other potential crime.

 Intelligence plays a huge part in preventing burglary so please report any suspicious activity to Humberside Police or Crime Stoppers on 0800555111.

Anti-social behaviour

The neighbourhood team have received several reports over the last month regarding anti-social behaviour in the area, particularly around the area of Haltemprice sports Centre. The majority of the reports referred to potential covid breaches and also cars driving around the carpark in an anti-social manner.

 This area is a patrolling hotspot for the local policing team and we aim to cover the Centre most evenings to deter such behaviour. Partnership working between ourselves and staff from Haltemprice means that when possible we can quickly identify those responsible for ASB and deal with them appropriately. A number of fairways have been given out to a group of youths who were caught breaching Covid restrictions last month. We have also given out two section 59’s to drivers who were using their vehicles in a fashion which caused harassment, alarm and distress to local residents.

If any residents wish to report an issue of ASB in the area please do so at the time of the incident as this gives us the best opportunity to respond whilst it is ongoing.

Detailed crime and ASB data for your area can be obtained by visiting www.police.uk and following the ‘Find your Neighbourhood’ link.

Operations and patrol areas

High Visibility Patrols COVID -19

Once again the country has been put back into a national lockdown by the Prime Minister with the infection rate set as ‘very high’. As a result of this, the team with continue with hi viz patrols to ensure that the Government’s guidelines are being adhered to. Our approach continues to be engaging, explaining and encouraging individuals to comply with the new regulations. Should people refuse to follow the lockdown guidelines then fines will continue to be given out.

Anti-Social Behaviour

With schools and colleges now shut because of the National Lockdown, it is likely that instances of ASB will continue to come to our attention.  Members of your neighbourhood team will be in ASB hot spots throughout this time to deter Covid breaches, and will be working in conjunction with the council ASB Team to tackle sustained issues were they arise.


Operation YELLOWFIN is a force wide response to motorcycle and motorcycle enabled crime where they be the on or off road type. The following is guidance produced by HUMBERSIDE POLICE’s Media department on how you can help HUMBERSIDE Police in this matter.

Tackling motorcycle related crime and antisocial behaviour

Humberside Police’s Operation Yellowfin continues to be on the lookout for motorbikes which may be stolen, ridden dangerously or illegally.

Officers working under Op Yellowfin are dedicated to their task and continue to stop offenders, arrest suspects and recover stolen property, making our communities safer for everyone.

What we need from you – We want our communities to work with us by providing information about stolen bikes, scooters, mopeds being stored in lockups and garages.  This information helps us recover stolen property and arrest those involved.

If you have information, either call us on 101 or use the online reporting form on this link: https://www.humberside.police.uk/report-it and quote ‘OpYellowfin’ to our call takers and officers.’


During these winter months the harvested fields in the rural areas we cover become targets for people who readily commit wildlife crime such as hare coursing and poaching. Operation GALILEO is a force initiative to target daytime wildlife crime and ZODIAC targeting night time offences. Specially trained wildlife crime officers will be tasked to patrol hotspot areas throughout the autumn and winter.
