What's Happening In Your Area?


Residential Burglaries (Cambridge Park)

In September 2020 there were two residential burglaries and two attempted burglaries reported in the area of Cambridge Park. Cambridge Park is a large area of over 85 properties which are situated on Kings Court, Queens Court, Clare Court, St.Johns Court and a small number of properties on Peterhouse Road. Although these properties are all independently owned they are part of Anchor Ltd and all residents are aged over 65 years. Due to the age of the residents and some of their health concerns this is a highly populated area of elderly and vulnerable people. Although an adult male has been arrested on suspicion of these offences (and subsequently released on bail) the investigations are still ongoing and we will now be focussing our patrols in this area at key times.

We will be visiting each property and speaking with each resident over the coming days/weeks as we conduct Humber talk surveys with those residents where we will be finding out their issues or concerns along with exploring the good points about the area where they live. As a part of this process we will also be assessing and identifying vulnerabilities within this community and then where necessary we will submit referrals to partner agencies. Local officers have a good rapport with the residents anyway but we will now be strengthening those relationships with high visibility reassurance patrols, regular engagement and crime prevention advice.


Humbertalking has now been completed in the area and every resident has been spoken to by local officers. Crime prevention advice has been given along with reassurance and extra high visibility patrols at key times. To date there has been a reduction in the issues we have been experiencing but despite this the patrols will continue over the winter months.

19 December 2020: There have been several reports over the last two weeks regarding a suspicious male prowling around Cambridge Park. Although no offences have been identified so far local officers have intensified the patrols and visibility in the area. A letter has been delivered to each property by local officers informing the residents of the suspicious behaviour and reminding residents to keep doors and windows locked and to report all suspicious activity.

Anti-social Behaviour  -  Kingston Gardens

There has been an increase in A.S.B and drug use in the area of Kingston Gardens and Kingston Woods. This area is also known locally as The Waterworks. This whole area consists of a large field, childrens play area (park) and a wooded area which is divided by a lane which leads to residential properties. The area attracts alot of families, dog walkers and children of all ages. Unfortunately though in more recent times we have seen an increase in large groups of teenagers gathering on the field and in the wooded area where there is occasional clear evidence of drug use and consumption of alcohol.

Youths have also been camping out in the wooded area and started small bonfires, play loud music and generally causing A.S.B. We have now identified this as one of our key community priorities and we are targeting the area with dedicated high visibility patrols where we will engage with youths in the area, explain the issues we are having with litter, drugs, alcohol etc and identify any possible offenders wherever possible. Recently during routine foot patrol we located three 14 year old girls in the woods who had open vessels of alcohol and who were clearly in drink. We seized this from them, obtained their details and conducted visits to their parents. We also recently challenged a group of young males climbing on the garages, obtained their details and gave words of advice and safeguarding advice to them. We will work closely with the council to try and take a multi-agency approach to make this a nicer and safer environment for everybody who visits the location.


We have now completed our Humbertalking surveys with most residents who live in this area. Their primary concerns are the congregation of large groups of youths, general ASB and more recently some small fires which have been set in the wooded area. We will be working with the fire brigade and local council to try and reduce these issues.

On Sunday 16/08/20 local PCSO's conducted Humber talking surveys with residents of Kingston Avenue, Littlefield Lane and Waterworks Cottages to speak with those closest to the Kingston Woods area to find out their views on the area and how it can be improved. With the information collated we will work with partner agencies to look at ways in which we can reduce the number of issues that have been raised by local residents.

Further update: We have worked closely with Humberside Fire and Rescue service to provide arson awareness packs which have been delivered to all properties that border the wooded area. This is due to to small fires been set alight in the wooded area in late September 2020.

The priority high visibility patrols are continuing in the area despite the darker and colder nights drawing in. We have seen an increase in groups of youths congregating on the park area since the return to school.

19 December 2020: Although the issues have reduced as the darker nights and colder weather have arrived, we will continue to monitor the area during our patrols.

Anti-social Behaviour  -  Freshney Green

The Freshney Green area has increased over the past few months. Youths have primarily been congregating outside of the Freshney Green Medical Centre but have been seen causing issues throughout the area. These issues have unfortunately consisted of youths causing damage, drinking alcohol and repeatedly breaching COVID-19 regulations regardless of government guideline changes. This has included youths congregating in private car-parking areas and archways around Wild Cherry Mews.

The local Policing team have and will continue to work with staff at the medical centre, Freshney Green Management Ltd and other key stakeholders to formulate realistic problem solving tactics. Currently, we are targeting the area with dedicated high visibility patrols. If we stop youths who are breaching COVID regulations then we will be conducting home visits and issuing fines to parents if this is deemed appropriate. We have challenged youths committing anti-social behaviour and obtained their details, as well as conducting home visits to inform parents. Some youths have also been referred through to the Youth Offending Service due to issues caused not only in this area but across the Yarborough Ward.
