Officers from across our Neighbourhood teams, Major Crime, Patrol, CID, Roads Policing, Special Ops and many more are coming together day in day out to tackle issues and individuals you say are causing the most harm.
Since 5pm yesterday, 28 people have been arrested for a number of offences from robbery to possession with intent to supply drugs, sexual assault to grievous bodily harm. That takes the total arrested in eleven days of intensive action to 212. Within that activity, we’ve executed 44 warrants across the force area, 27 people have been charged and 114 have been bailed or released under investigation.
In the last 24 hours, we’ve also conducted 14 proactive stop and searches in areas such as Beverley, Bridlington and Hull, and our local teams have continued to complete checks on those with domestic violence protection orders to ensure the safety of those most vulnerable. Some of the hotspot areas across the force we’ve patrolled in the last day include Longhill, Orchard Park and Boothferry Road Goole, East Marsh and Scunthorpe, aiming to deter criminal activity from regularly reported areas.
Chief Superintendent Darren Downs said: “The continued success of Operation Galaxy is only possible with the information we receive from the community.
“Our neighbourhood teams are out and about everyday gathering information from the people of their areas, which is then passed onto our wider Op Galaxy officers to decide on what action to take, whether that’s obtaining a warrant, focussing high visibility patrols in a certain area or engaging with partner agencies.
“Any action we do take is then followed up with the community to ensure they know we are taking action in their area to make them feel safer.
“We have arrested 212 people in total now, which couldn’t have been done without our communities support and intelligence. We have made growing progress that Humberside is feeling a really difficult place to commit criminal offences, we will catch and convict any offenders quickly.
“If you have identified a particular issue in your area, I would encourage you to tell us about it. The action we’ve taken so far is based on what you’re telling us and we will continue to act to ensure that our communities are protected from those that intend to cause them harm.”
Just some of what we’ve been up to in the last 24 hours…
