Ryedale has one of the lowest crimes rates in the UK, however, the residents of Slingsby, Fryton and South Holme set up a Neighbourhood Watch scheme to help reduce the level of crime in the area even further.
This page contains the recent news updates from Slingsby’s Neighbourhood Watch and the North Yorkshire Police Community messaging service relating to potential or reported criminal activity that the police believe the community should be aware of.
Occasionally there may be no news listed here which, of course, is a good thing, but at other times there may be important information from the police. Please check back regularly for updates.
