The Humberside Police have released their latest crime figures for the South West Holderness Ward (which incorporates Hedon).
The statistics show that reported crime has decreased slightly from this time last year. In particular the average number of burglaries in the ward area has decreased from 11.3 to 8.7 (23.5%).
However, in Hedon itself the neighbourhood policing team are warning of an INCREASE in burglaries and are asking residents to ensure windows and doors remain locked at all times. They cite the example recently when a local home was entered via an open patio door and electrical equipment stolen while the owners were in the property.
The Hedon police neighbourhood team are offering a free home security survey for any resident who would like one. Please contact any member of the team who will arrange for your property to be examined.
