From a police perspective: Connecting the community online

This month’s column brings us up-to-date with how the force are reaching out to the community via their online channels.

Humberside Police are always looking for new ways to communicate with the community about the work we are doing, the priority areas, appeals and general news. We therefore use a range of tools to convey our messages and hope to receive feedback about your concerns or information within your community.

Our priorities are set based on the feedback provided to us via these outlets as well as analysing police incident reports data. We cannot assume to know what the community within Goole perceive as being a priority and therefore we do encourage people to report incidents to us so we can use this information to target our resources and address them. If we don’t know it is happening we can’t deal with it, so I do ask that you report any of your concerns. Social media has grown in stature over the last 10 years and we are proud to be active on our online channels, meaning we can connect with the people of Goole and address issues in a new way.

Our Goole is one of the many media outlets we use. It allows us to provide you with updates, advice and appeals. Alongside this partnership, we also like to get as much information out to you as possible. Therefore, we encourage the community to look at our other engagement outlets for interaction and discussion and let us know your concerns.

They can be found at the following sites:

Internet page: www.humberside.police.uk – Find out police surgery times and dates often located in public areas for easy access.

Facebook: Humberside Police – East Riding of Yorkshire West

Twitter account: @Humberbeat_ERYW


Community messaging system by Neighbourhood Alert. Phone, text and email.

Tel 101: Non-emergency police line.

We are also still lucky enough to have the traditional method by reporting directly to the front office staff at Goole police station. Goole is also lucky to have a staffed station where you can seek advice and assistance. Open between 8am-8pm Mondays to Fridays and 8am-4pm on the weekends we are always happy to help with any of your local concerns. Come on down and speak to our staff to let us know about any worries you may have, and remember to always keep up-to-date with our online channels.
