Busy Nights Ahead For Humberside Police

Busy Nights Ahead For Humberside Police

Published by Karen Liu at 9:57am 30th October 2019.

Humberside Police say Halloween and Bonfire Night are two of the busiest nights of the year for them. 

The force says extra officers will be on patrol to help with any issues when they arise, and they will be well placed in those areas across the area where there have been problems in the past, particularly with anti-social behaviour.

Humberside Police said:

"Our officers are there to keep you safe.  We’re also offering a bit of advice so that both nights pass by safely and you all have a great time. Of course if anyone is behaving inappropriately then we’ll step in.

Last year there was very little monstrous behaviour and no big sparks. We only got 42 Halloween-related reports and 48 Bonfire Night-related reports of ASB across the whole force.

It was a very small minority of people who were causing problems such as throwing eggs and flour. We’re pleased about that and hope that continues this year.

Don’t be too ghoulish on Halloween, and remember that not everyone enjoys trick-or treating. Some people can be vulnerable and may find Halloween genuinely frightening so please keep that in mind.

If you’re going out, here are a few easy tips from Humberside Police to make Halloween a fun night:

  • Adults should always accompany young children.
  • Be seen and be safe. If you’re going trick or treating, make sure you can be easily seen. Take a torch, and wear something reflective particularly if your costume is black.
  • Tell someone where you’re going, what time you’ll be home and plan your route.
  • Stay in a group whenever you can.
  • Remember road safety – look out for traffic if you’re in a busy area.
  • Make sure you all get home safely and don’t accept lifts from strangers
  • If your neighbours don’t want to be disturbed, leave them alone.
  • Don’t make it obvious that your home is empty if you’re all heading out. Don’t make your home a target for burglars. Leave your valuables out of sight.

Humberside Police also say that every year on Bonfire Night, they work extremely close with Humberside Fire and Rescue Service. 

They know where the problem areas are and so do the officers at the force, so they will be working together with them and local authorities to make sure that everyone is safe.
