Humber Talking pod coming to Orchard Park Hull

Humber Talking pod coming to Orchard Park Hull

The Humber Talking community pod is due to be moved to Orchard Park, near to the shops on Ellerburn Avenue, on Monday 10 August.

The pod, previously located in Hull City Centre, is a space where people can come and talk to police, the fire service and the council about any concerns or issues.

Chief Inspector Lee Edwards said: “We’ve had the Humber Talking Pod in Hull City Centre for almost a year now and it has been really popular with residents and visitors alike.

“Having a base where we, or colleagues from partner agencies, can work from and encourage people to come and have a chat has been really beneficial and it’s a great way to help us stay connected with the local community.

“I look forward to seeing what it brings for the officers and the wider community in Orchard Park and I would encourage those that live and work in the area to really make the most of it. 

“Whether you want to tell us about issues in the area, ask for safety advice or even just want to say hello we will be delighted to welcome you.”

The Humber Talking pod is a mobile resource that travels around the force area to help ensure a really visible presence the heart of our communities for those that live and work in the area to use. 

Cllr Gary Wareing, Hull City Council Northern Area Chair, said: “Everyone wants to feel safe and have peace of mind in the area where they live. Having a highly visible presence in Orchard Park shopping area, where residents can report issues of concern to police officers and council staff, will reassure residents and highlights our commitment to tackling anti-social behaviour!”

A new separate Safer Hull Pod is now in the city centre and available for people to visit, operated by our officers, Hull City Council’s Neighbourhood Nuisance Team, HullBID, Renew and Emmaeus. 

The Safer Hull Pod has been funded through the Safer Hull Partnership via a grant from the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner and is part of wider work being developed by the Safer City Centre Group.

We’d encourage those in the city centre to come and say hello and discuss any issues and concerns.
