THE HUMBERSIDE POLICE WEBSITE contains a lot of useful information of interest to local Hedon residents.
The Local Crime Mapping service records a general low level of crime in the South West Holderness Ward area. From last December to February 2010 the average number of crimes has decreased from 51 to 39 compared to the same three month period last year.
Local priorities are also identified on this useful police website. Currently, these include reports of an increase in offences of Burglary and Arson in the Hedon Industrial Estate, Tower House Lane area.
The Neighbourhood Police Team will be working with businesses in this area about the possibility of setting up a Business Watch Scheme. Additionally, Police patrols will take place, which will stop any suspicious vehicles and deal with offenders in a positive manner.
On a negative note, a police Facebook group allowing people to help comment and shape police priorities in the local area is advertised on the website – but alas the group does not appear active at the moment.
