Police patrols worked to curb trouble
EAST YORKS: Targeted patrols are helping reduce violent crime in the East Riding, according to a senior police officer.

Over the same period, recorded cases of domestic violence in the division fell by 33 per cent.
Chief Inspector Farrow said: "These significant reductions are good news for victims of crime."

The police officer said increased use of targeted patrols in known troublespots over the recent festive season had also delivered encouraging results.
"There were assaults and there were fights but the feeling is we had a good festive period overall with no significant issues.
"That was down to targeted policing supported by the licensees and the council. Even now we are already planning for this Christmas."
