Humbertalking has set our priorities, this month we are to:
1. Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community 2. Reduce rural crime 3. Road Safety 4. Preventing Residential Burglary
- Reduce ASB - Improve the quality of life in the community
We have recently seen an increase in the number of anti-social behaviour reports which has had a detrimental impact on people who live and work here in our community.
The Holderness Neighbourhood Policing Team works with our key partners and the community to reduce anti-social behaviour and the anti-social use of motor vehicles. We provide proactive responses to reports of anti-social behaviour in our neighbourhood Area and are constantly reviewing our patrol strategy to address this. We are working hard with partners to address this and ensure our market towns and rural communities are a safe place to live and work.
- Reduce rural crime
As with all rural locations, the Holderness area suffer with theft of farming machinery and vehicles along with poaching activity like hare coursing
Action OPERATION GALILEO - Throughout this year we have worked with volunteers on the Rural Watches across Holderness to deter rural criminality. In addition we will utilise all the available technology, crime prevention techniques and assistance from the Rural Crime Team to deter and detect crime. In addition to local officers our patrols are routinely bolstered by specialist Officers from our Roads Policing, and Operations department.
OPERATION GALILEO UPDATES: Persistent hare courser admits breach of community protection notice
A Hartlepool man who was given a community protection notice (CPN) for persistently coursing for hares in the East Riding has become the first person in the country to breach such a notice for hare coursing. Michael Lund, 51, of Lazenby Road, Hartlepool, did not appear at Hull Magistrates’ Court on Friday, 6 October but pleaded guilty to the breach of the notice by post.
- Road Safety
As with most other areas, road safety is something in which we can improve upon in our District.
We hold regular proactive road safety campaigns with the Highways Authority which include speed enforcement in hot spot locations
Mud Season is here again
Due to the high volume of work in fields across our rural communities, do expect to see mud on our carriageways - we are reminding farmers of their responsibilities & ask motorists to be alert, slow down
Community Officers are checked in with the local school's Junior Road Safety Officers to see the marvellous work the children are doing in keeping our roads safe and supporting a Walk to School week
Great to see the smiles & everyone arriving to school safely, keep up the good work
- Preventing Residential Burglary
As Christmas is fast approaching and is a lovely time to get together with your Christmas Bubble. Unfortunately in the run up to Christmas the amount of burglaries increases.
We have compiled a few top tips to help make your home as secure as it can be in preparation for the festive season.
– Close and lock all windows and doors when you go out. This may seem like an obvious tip, but is one that is so easily overlooked. Remember to take 2 minutes before you head out to check all windows are shut.
– Don’t leave any gifts or valuables in view. Close your curtains or blinds so intruders can’t see what you’ve got in your home.
– Lock all garden tools and ladders in a shed or garage. These would be the perfect aid for any burglar to gain access to your property. Remember to also lock your garage/shed, especially if it’s attached to your home.
– Turn off all Xmas lights when you are not home. Christmas tree lights should not be left on for prolonged periods of time or overnight. Even LED lights can overheat, and with a combination of a dry Christmas tree, could cause a fire. Make it a habit to turn off your Christmas lights every time you leave the house or go to bed at night
– Don’t let thieves know what is in your house by leaving the packaging outside. This is an immediate heads up to a burglar that you have some expensive presents inside your home, and could tempt them to break in.
– Check how secure your doors and windows are. If required install stronger doors, dead bolts, heavy duty locks and new window hinges to keep out unwanted intruders. You may find an extra physical lock useful for additional security to your patio doors.
During this month members of the Holderness Policing Team will continue be out and about providing residents and visitors with advice on home security.
