Beverley Rural Update for June 2011

During June, two vehicles were attached and had head lights stolen.  Both of these were Land Rover and we are currently looking at various target hardening events in Middleton.  We are also interested in any volunteers for Community Road Watch to try and slow down in the village.  We provide the training and will work with you to assist.  Anyone interested should contact the rural team.

3. Priority

Issue: – Vehicle Crime – Bishop Burton and surrounding area

Vehicle Crime still remains a priority in the rural area, with 4×4 vehicles being the main target. Middleton on the Wolds saw two vehicles being the target of theft of headlights.

Wednesday 20th July will see the launch of a property marking scheme specifically intended for 4×4 type vehicles. The scheme is aimed at reducing the number of 4×4 type vehicles being stolen to then be broken up for parts.

6. and Appeals

Reports of Anti Social Behaviour in have reduced significantly over the past month. Officers have been engaged in both High Visibility and Plain Clothes Patrols in an attempt to deal with young causing anti social behaviour.

A large amount of alcohol has been seized from young and a number of letters sent home to parents. Two youths have received reprimands for Persistently Possessing Alcohol in a public place.

The issues in regarding vehicles speeding appears to have reduced. A number of residents are now working with the local Community Support Officer engaged on the Road Watch Scheme, which appears to be successful.

General Report

If you are interested in the property marking scheme for Land rover Defender vehicles, contact PC 1805 Turrell on the above telephone number, alternatively email your details and someone will get back to you; julie.turrell@humberside.pnn. uk

There has been an increase in crime throughout the area, as you can see from the village reports below.  It is important that suspicious vehicles or persons are reported to the   when seen, particularly if it is at night, when there is less / around and so, easier for us to find them.  Certain areas are more vulnerable, such as allotments, farm yards, isolated buildings and industrial estates.

Identify theft is another area to be careful off.  Please remove names and addresses from letters before putting in your blue bin.  Ideally, shred bank statements or other sensitive documents or burn them.  It is the same with using the internet, most sites are safe, and are well known names and well established, some sites may not be.  Remember your bank will never ask you for all your account details or your PIN, so if some does ask that, alarm bells should be ringing. Likewise, as a general rule, if it seems too good to be true, then it probably is.  You cannot win the Canadian lottery, if you have not entered it, nor is it likely that someone  from wants to process a lot of money through your bank account as there relative has been deposed!  Sounds far fetched, but these requests happen, some even come through to the police email addresses, and do ring back or make contact.
