Police officers will be out and about throughout the area during May.

High visibility patrols will be operating in Market Weighton’s town centre area to deter potential anti-social behaviour (ASB).

Officers have also been patrolling Pocklington and the surrounding rural areas during their shifts.

Team members will also meet regularly with partners to ensure they have a multi-agency approach to local issues, individuals and problem solving.

These meetings are attended by Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, Youth and Family Support, housing officers, Environmental Health and the East Riding Anti-Social Behaviour Team.

Officers share information and resources to deal with local neighbourhood issues, in particular those identified as causing the most harm to the community.

A police spokesman said: “We have been patrolling Market Weighton and the surrounding rural areas during our shifts. We are aware that there are many vulnerable people that live within the community and we want to reassure them that we are still here for you.

“We have also been posting on social media on a regular basis as a way of keeping everyone updated.

“Patrols are continuing around All Saints Church in Pocklington and we are asking people not to gather in the area where anti social behaviour has occurred.

“We have also had several reports of ASB and damage around the area near to the skate park in West Green, the park on Broadmanor, the Rugby club, the Football club and Primrose Wood. Patrols will now be monitoring these locations on a regular basis.”
