Priorities and action

Reduce anti-social behaviour in our communities

Action

  • Effective patrol strategies to direct the right resources to the right locations at the right time through analysis of incidents and intelligence
  • Work with partnership agencies to deliver a problem solving approach to ASB through PIPPY (Positive Intervention & Prevention Process for Young People)
  • Engage with local schools, children’s homes and youth groups to deliver early intervention but also develop diversionary tactics
  • ASB follow up visits to victims and locations to carry out low level problem solving and target hardening
  • Deal with offenders robustly in a staged approach from PIPPY sanctions, ABCs or adopting the new ASB powers including Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBOs which replaced ASBOs) but also considering the offenders vulnerabilities and engaging with partnership agencies to offer support

Rural Crime

Action

  • Effective patrol strategies to direct the right resources to the right locations at the right time through analysis of incidents and intelligence
  • Target hardening of victims but also identifying vulnerable locations and properties and delivering prevention methods like tool / trailer marking to deter theft / aid property recovery . PCSOs have also visited a number equine premises local to Thirsk and Easingwold to offer Tac Marking
  • Joint patrols with Country watch volunteers and neighbouring forces increasing the ‘eyes and ears’ on the ground resulting in effective stop checks and arrests of offenders visiting our rural communities. These take place approximately twice a month
  • Wildlife trained officers using their skills to deal with specialist rural crimes and working in partnership with other agencies like the RSCPA & Environment Agency resulting in effective punishments and orders via the courts
  • Partnership training of Safer Neighbourhood Officers giving them improved knowledge of rural procedures and regulations like livestock movement documentation making them more effective when stopping suspicious vehicles in our rural communities
  • Engagement in our rural communities through attendance at Parish Council meetings, rural drop in surgeries and at Country Shows
  • Through Operation Hawk and Operation Checkpoint dedicated patrols target rural and travelling criminality throughout the region
  • Rural hard to reach communities are supported with effective technology and intelligence tactics
