What's Happening In Your Area?


Shop theft: 

The Yarborough ward area has quite a large number of shops and retail premises compared to other ward areas which in turn brings a greater risk of opportunity for shop theft. We generally experience high levels of theft from shops across the Yarborough Ward and the neighbourhood policing team are working with the shops to try and look at ways of preventing and deterring thefts.

The local PCSO's and neighbourhood policing team have a good rapport with the staff at all the shops and will always include targeted patrols around the stores during our general patrols.

We also conduct surgeries which are unfortunately currently suspended due to restrictions and social distancing rules.  These surgeries are advertised via social media and within the store when they do occur.

UPDATE** Shop theft on the Yarborough Ward is now increasing due to the relaxation of guidelines with regards to Covid. More and more people are now out shopping and few stores now have a queuing system outside meaning stores are not controlling the numbers of people within the stores which gives shop thieves more opportunity. We are still working closely with our stores and continue to share information and give crime prevention advice. We are now looking at all data over the last couple of months and we will be putting more focus on the stores that are reporting the most thefts. We will speak with management within stores, conduct surveys on the layout, policies and displaying of items. Watch this space for more details.

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.

In the coming weeks we will be intensifying our patrols in the area and also conduct Humbertalking surveys with local residents to gauge their views on the local area and to seek their views on what could improve the area.

**UPDATE** - 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.


Update** 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.
