These meetings are attended by local partners, including Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, Youth and Family Support, Housing Officers, Environmental Health and the East Riding Anti-Social Behaviour Team, among others. We share information and resources to deal with local neighbourhood issues, in particular, those identified as causing the most harm in the community.

4. Crime Reduction Advice
Remember home security
Imagine that you have returned home from having some time away to discover your home has been burgled…it is not something the Police want anyone to go through. Just because you are on holiday does not mean burglars are taking time off too and if it looks like you are away then your home could become a target. We are urging everyone to check their security before they go away and ensure their holiday is one to remember for the right reasons.
Follow our simple tips to secure your home against burglars:
Make sure your windows and doors are locked. If you have a burglar alarm turn it on and leave the key or passcode with a family member or trusted neighbour.
Remove and secure items that may be used to break in or climb into your home eg ladders and lock your outbuildings so burglars can’t use the tools inside.
Use automatic timer-switches in different rooms to turn lights on and off at different times and perhaps a radio when it gets dark.
Ask a trusted neighbour or family member come round and open and close curtains, plus move the post, so it looks like people are coming and going at your home.
Cancel any newspaper or milk deliveries.
Don’t advertise that you are away by placing pictures etc on social media – you don’t know who can read your comments or who they will tell.
Work with your neighbours to keep an eye on each other’s homes. Neighbourhood Watch and Neighbourhood Networks encourage this type of community spirit and long term it may be worth joining one or setting one up in your street. For details visit: www.ourwatch.org.uk or contact your local policing team.
Never leave keys anywhere near the front door; burglars know where to look. Consider fitting a letterbox cage or other restrictor to prevent burglars from putting their hands or gadgets through and opening the latches from the inside.
Keep valuables out of sight and don’t leave them where they can be seen through a window.
If you conceal valuables in your home, avoid obvious hiding places such as your sock drawer or in a fake food can in the kitchen – burglars are wise to this trick.
Try not to leave anything you would hate to lose in the house while you are away.
Given that most burglars are opportunists and their motive is generally to get in, get something of value and then get out as fast as possible, your intruder might be encouraged to leave after finding a fake hoard rather than turning your house upside down to find anything of real value.
