Police Updates for May For Pocklington & Wolds Weighton

Police Updates for May for both Pocklington and Wolds Weighton.

Pocklington Provincial Update for May 2016

Issue: Pocklington Town Centre area (Evenings):

Throughout May, we are to continue our High Visibility patrols of the Pocklington Town Centre area to deter potential anti-social behaviour. These patrols include regular checks on peripheral areas at Pocklington Infants’ School, Maxwell Road(periodic reports of criminal damage and youths causing annoyance), All Saints Church (periodic reports of anti-social behaviour on an evening) and town car parks (reports of low level anti-social behaviour). Criminal offenders will bechallenged robustly, arrested or reported for summons. Penalty Notices for Disorder or warning letters may be used in appropriate cases however, those who offend should expect to be arrested and dealt with if their anti social behaviour amounts to criminal offending. The exercise of discretion should not be expected.

Issue: Youths causing annoyance with Vehicles, Stamford Bridge (Evenings):

Officers will continue patrols in Stamford Bridge and the Viking Road car park. Anyone caught engaging in anti-social behaviour will be dealt with under the FAIRWAY process jointly with East Riding of Yorkshire Council. It is unlikely that any discretion will be shown. Also drivers using their cars to cause alarm or distress will be considered for warnings and possible seizure of their vehicles under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act.

Issue: Youths Causing Annoyance (Evenings):

Officers will continue patrols in the areas of Scaife Garth and Sherbuttgate due to reports of low level anti-social behaviour.

5. News and Appeals

General bicycle information

1. What can you do to protect your property?

 If you haven’t done so already register your bicycles frame number along with any pictures and other details you have on www.immobilise.com. (Registration on immobilise only takes a couple of minutes. All you need is your bike's make, model, identifying number code(s) and a few photographs).

 Invest in a quality “D” lock to help reduce the risk of your bike being stolen.

 Look at where you are storing your bike and make sure that your shed or garage is secured with a good quality lock. Many shed windows are never used, if this is the case – why not screw them shut. Fitting mesh or steel bars across the window from the inside allows light to enter but means the thief has to go to a lot of trouble to remove them. Replace broken glass with laminated glass.

 Consider buying a cycle anchor that can be bolted to the wall or floor of your shed which your cycle can then be fastened to or if you have several cycles lock them altogether.

 If you are having to leave your bike out on the street, where possible leave it in a well lit area and lock both the frame and wheels to the bike stand. If there is no stand, ensure that it’s locked to secure street furniture eg railings or a lamp post.

2. Are you visible?

 Make sure you wear light coloured clothing, preferably luminous with reflective stripes.

 Make sure whatever you wear, can’t become entangled in wheels or chains.

 Don’t carry heavy bags or rucksacks, which may make you unstable.

 Always wear a helmet, as it may help to prevent serious head injuries, make sure it fits you and conforms to current British Standards.

3. Accessories

 Fit a bell to warn other road users of your presence.


 If you cycle in poor visibility or at night you must fit:

- White front light - Rear red light

- Red rear reflector

- Amber pedal reflectors front and rear.

 Any distraction can cause an accident.

 Always show drivers what you intend to do and try to anticipate a driver’s actions.

 Ride positively without making any erratic changes in direction or speed.

 Look and signal before you start, stop or turn, ride well clear of the kerb and parked cars and always obey the rules of the road especially stop, one way and no entry signs.
