2. Community Priorities

  1. Pocklington Town Centre area (Evenings):

Throughout March 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), the Tennis Club (reports of anti-social behaviour, (ASB)) and town car parks (reports of low level anti-social behaviour). 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.

  1. Pocklington – Vehicle related nuisance
To reduce anti-social behaviour (ASB) and its impact on the communities within the Pocklington area as well
as taking positive action against offenders who cause ASB with their vehicles.  Hotspot areas in Pocklington
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.
