DRUGS and weapons offences have decreased in the Humberside Police Force area, according to the latest recorded crime figures. The statistics from the Office for National Statistics showed Humberside Police is once again bucking national trends. Whilst the national picture shows that possession of offensive weapon crimes rose by 13.2 per cent, the Humberside Force registered a 17.4 per cent decrease. 

Drug offences have also decreased by more than double the national average. Chief Constable Lee Freeman said: “These figures reflect the growth of 800 additional officers that I have added to the ranks of the Force since taking over in 2017 and our focus on getting back to doing the basics well – reducing crime, arresting offenders and bringing them before the courts.”
