Keep your keys and vehicles safe and don’t be a “2 in 1” Victim


The term “2 in 1 burglary” is used when there are two offences in one, for example when vehicle keys have been stolen in order for offenders to take a car/van from outside a property.

These crimes have usually been committed overnight and often the offenders have gained access to a house by forcing entry or by even using cat flaps and letter boxes to put an instrument into the house to unhook car keys from key hangers near to doors.

Here are some simple security measures that can be taken:

  1. Keep all keys safe and out of sight. Never hang them near to doors where they could be taken through a letterbox or near an open window.

  1.  Never leave house or car keys in an obvious place like a handbag or key cupboard.

  1. If you’ve got a garage, use it rather than leaving your vehicle on the driveway or the roadside.  Always ensure that your garage is locked too.

  1. Always keep your vehicle locked and secured. If your car doesn't have an alarm/immobilizer then consider getting one fitted.

  1. Consider extra security such as a steering wheel lock. (Steering locks and gear level locks are often all that is needed to deter a thief as they simply don't want the hassle of breaking in and trying to get them undone.)

  1. Never leave any property in your car or van when it is unattended. It takes criminals seconds to smash a window and grab something.

  1. There is also a growing trend for work vans to be targeted and broken into, so keep valuable tools in your home overnight or at work.


It is clear that offenders are looking at locations and vehicles prior to coming back to commit the crimes. This could simply be someone looking around an area during the day, someone pretending to do door to door sales, or someone coming to your home on another pretext.

So, if you get a “cold caller” ask yourself:

  1. Is the caller coming to my home in any way suspicious?
  2. Is the caller paying attention to my car or asking me questions about it?

If so, give Humberside Police a call on the Non Emergency number 101 to report your concerns.

If you’re selling your vehicle via a newspaper, a magazine or a website, remember that you’ll get callers coming to your home looking at your vehicle. If you do, do they seem legitimate? If in doubt, and can do so safely, get a description of the people who come to look at the car and, just as importantly, details of any vehicle they came in.

If you’ve got any doubts, then let us know!

Pocklington Police Report September 2017

Pocklington Provincial Update for September 2017

1. Priority
Issue: Pocklington Town Centre area (Evenings):

Throughout September we are to continue our high visibility patrols of the Pocklington Town Centre area to deter potential anti-social behaviour.

Criminal offenders will be challenged robustly, arrested or reported for summons. Penalty Notices for Disorder or warning letters may be used in appropriate cases however, those who offend should expect to be arrested and dealt with if their anti social behaviour amounts to criminal offending.  The exercise of discretion should not be expected.

Allerthorpe Triathlon 16th September

Allerthorpe Park Triathlon.
Please be aware of this final event taking place between 12 noon and 8pm on Saturday September 16th. The organiser has advised that the area around Marketbridge Lane will be busy.  More details below.

Saturday 16th September – Sundowner Triathlon and Sprint Triathlon
The main triathlon of the day is the long distance Sundowner Triathlon comprising a 1900m swim, 90km cycle and 21km run.
We also hold a Sprint distance race in the morning with a 750m swim, 20km cycle & 5km run format.
The Sprint distance triathlon follows exactly the same route as that described above for our Allerthorpe Sprint triathlon held in June. It will start at 8:30am and will be finished by 10:30am.

The long distance Sundowner starts with a 1900m lapped swim in the lake at Allerthorpe Lakeland Park. Competitors then head out on a 2 lap cycle route that initially follows the same route as the Classic triathlon (Melbourne, A163, Bubwith, Harlthorpe and Foggathorpe). Then instead of turning left towards Seaton Ross, riders continue to Holme upon Spalding Moor, then turn left onto the A614 and left again onto Harswell Lane towards Everingham. After Everingham, riders then turn right to Bielby and then continue along Crudhall Lane to Hayton before joining the A1079 (West bound). At the roundabout riders turn left and continue through Allerthorpe. Riders will then complete a second cycle lap to cover the full 90km cycle distance before turning left back into the Park.
The 3 lap run starts with a lap around the lake at the Park then turns left out of the Park and 1st left onto Marketbridge Lane. This time the turn around point is approximately 200m before the Bielby end of Marketbridge Lane. Runners return to the Park back along Marketbridge Lane to complete each lap. This will be the busiest part of the triathlon and we will have safety marshals at each end of Marketbridge Lane to advise any motorists of what is happening and how to proceed. Every care will be taken to avoid inconvenience to any local residents.

The main Sundowner Triathlon will start at 12:00 noon and will be finished by 8:00pm at the very latest. Most runners will have completed their run well  before 7:00pm.
After the race we will be holding an awards presentation in our lakeside marquee at the Park.

We take great pride in organising safe enjoyable and memorable events, and we want to be a good neighbour to the local residents who live on or near the routes we use for our triathlons. We will do all we can to ensure this is the case at all of our Allerthorpe based triathlons. With all of our triathlon events, competitors must comply fully with the Highway Code, they must not ride in groups and they all must wear cycle helmets. We will have marshals at every turn point on the full cycle and run routes and will use NEG approved motorcycle referees (who are often police officers), who will patrol the race routes ensuring competitors are complying with the rules and riding safely.
