Local Police Forum
For those interested in policing issues in the local area, then there is an opportunity to attend a Public Police Forum and meet local police officers and officials on Wednesday 9th September 2009 at 7.00pm in the Boardroom at Thorngumbald Village Hall.
For more information have a look at the Humberside Police Authority website under Mid and South West Holderness Wards.
Unfortunately at the time of writing then there was no opportunity to download a publicity poster for the meeting or a Service Level Agreement about policing in Hedon from the web-page. It is assumed that this information will be made available nearer the meeting?
Local Policing News
The average number of crimes in the South West Holderness area (includes Hedon) between May and July 2009 has decreased by 40% (from 100 to 60) compared to the same 3 month period in 2008.
This statistical information is readily available from the Humberside Police Local Crime Mapping web-pages. Information is available from the website on the types of crimes commited i.e. burglary, robbery, vehicle crime, violence and anti-social behaviour.
The Humberside Police also try to give out regular news, advice and warnings to relevant to the local area via their News for the Local Area web-pages. I think that these pages could be updated more frequently, however they do provide some timely relevant advice. The quote below is taken directly from the website and warns local residents about the dangers of summer burglaries.
“There has been a spate of shed burglaries in Hedon and Preston where the offenders have stolen gardening equipment. The team would like to take this opportunity to advise residents to secure sheds and outbuildings with strong locks and clasps. Fitting mesh to windows and also consider an alarm, security marking property with your post code and securing large items within the shed.”
