HUMBERSIDE POLICE have released the dates for the next round of Police Surgeries in the South East Holderness area and commented on some of the priority issues being tackled in the area.
Easington – Anti social behaviour is a reoccurring issue in the Square. Members of the public have reported in street surveys that they feel youths in the village of Easington are causing anti social behaviour. Officers will be tasked to conduct highly visible patrols to deter and detect anti social behaviour.
Keyingham – During April 2012 the village suffered an isolated crime spree where offenders travelled to the village in a stolen car and committed further crimes. Thefts from vehicles were reported and it became clear that property was being left on display. Officers will conduct crime prevention patrols and warn motorists and home owners should they have left property on display giving thieves an opportunity.
Police Comment: “Although we live in a very safe and low crime area, we are subject to offences such as burglaries or theft from vehicles. Please note that 50% of all burglaries reported in the East Riding are through insecure doors or windows. Likewise over 50 % of cars broken into are insecure or have items of value on show. The crime prevention message is clear – lock it or lose it! Sometimes we get complacent about security, but thieves are opportunists, and will travel into the East Riding, often from Hull looking for easy pickings.”
