Wolds Weighton Update for August 2016
1.    Priority

Issue: Market Weighton Town Centre area (Evenings):
Throughout August, we are to continue our High Visibility patrols of the Market Weighton Town Centre area to deter potential anti-social behaviour. These patrols include regular checks on the High Street and peripheral areas of Londesborough Road Car Park, Scotts Croft Memorial Park, the town council building area and the area surrounding the Giant Bradley statue (periodic reports of youths causing annoyance). Criminal offenders will be challenged 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 (Evenings):
Officers will continue patrols in the areas of Aspen Close, the park, the monkey run & football field due to regular reports of low level anti-social behaviour. Anyone caught engaging in such activities will be dealt with jointly with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Intelligence is the Key  


Crime intelligence is a key element of the work that the Police do. Many enquiries involve the collation of a wide variety of information in order that a successful prosecution can be achieved. But intelligence gathering is much more than this. Often it is the way by which officers from our Community teams get a full picture of what is happening in their areas, and often involves details of suspicious incidents seen by the public being passed onto us.

Public appeals through the press are routinely made at local level; sometimes at national level for serious offences. They raise the profile of serious incidents in the hope that information can be gathered which will lead to the successful prosecution of an offender. But the need to gather intelligence can be equally important in the day to day policing of our neighbourhoods as well.

A conversation an officer has in the street; an incident log received at the Police Station detailing a suspicious person or vehicle seen; that sighting of an individual who’s moved into the area, all can sometimes provide officers with that extra piece in the jigsaw that they need.

If you get a suspicious individual wandering around; if you see a suspicious vehicle driving slowly around your estate; if you notice something unusual at a house that you think is out of the ordinary, you have two choices: either ignore it, and hope it isn’t anything important, or contact the Police. We’d much prefer that you called us! We’d rather check on something to find it’s in order than not know and later find out that a crime has occurred.

Our officers are out on patrol and routinely stop check people or vehicles. But they can’t be everywhere all the time and your help is essential in helping ensure that we get the intelligence we need.

So please, let us know if you see anything suspicious in your neighbourhood. If you can safely get a registration number of a vehicle or a description of a person, please do so as this all helps build the bigger picture and could help detect or deter a crime.  


Call us on the Non Emergency Number 101 or 999 in an emergency or if a crime is occurring.
