3. Community Priorities

  1. Market Weighton Town Centre area (Evenings):
Throughout March we are to continue our high visibility patrols of the Market Weighton Town Centre
area to deter potential anti-social behaviour (ASB). 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.

  1. 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.

  1. Vehicle related nuisance
To reduce anti-social behaviour (ASB) and its impact on the communities within the Wolds Weighton area as
well as taking positive action against offenders who cause ASB with their vehicles.  Hotspot areas will be
checked regularly and any 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.  

3. Crime Reduction Advice

Protect your devices
Your mobile is so much more than a phone. It’s your phone book, internet, email, social media, maps, personal
banker, camera, photo library and weather forecaster. That’s why we strongly advise you to read on, to see how
you can prevent yourself from being a victim of mobile theft.
  • Don’t leave your phone, iPad, tablet or camera unattended, out of your sight or left on a table – thieves
  • can grab a phone in seconds.
  • Always be aware of your mobile and your whereabouts and act accordingly and when you’ve finished
  • using it, put it away.
  • Ensure you retain a record of your phone's IMEI number. This is a 15-digit unique number which can be
  • obtained by keying in *#06#. You need this information if the phone is lost or stolen. And don’t keep a
  • note of it on your phone as it defeats the object.
  • Use your device’s security features, apps or PIN locking mechanisms to protect your data and prevent the
  • phone being used if stolen.
  • Register for free on an accredited mobile phone database such as Immobilise. This helps police to identify
  • you as the rightful owner.
(www.immobilise is a free web based, secure property registration system.  It is endorsed and searchable
by all 43 UK Police Forces. Fill in the online form and create your own account – you will receive an email
from immobilise confirming your account name and password.)

  • Track it. Consider installing a tracker app on your smartphone. They’re readily available online. If your
  • mobile’s ever stolen, act promptly.
