Warning to off-road motorbike and mini-moto users
The Bridlington Community Team are urging people not to risk injuring themselves and members of the community or falling foul of the law when using off-road motorbikes or mini-moto’s.
There are plenty of opportunities for you to meet your local officers and talk to them about problems you're worried about. You can pop along to Police Surgeries, which are informal drop-in sessions at well visited places in the community. It's a chance to meet your local officers, tell them about crime and antisocial behaviour in your area and get crime prevention advice.
You can also have a say in what your local police and other agencies focus on in your area at Priority Setting Meetings. Any member of the community can go along and talk to local officers and PCSO's, council workers and people from Fire and Rescue about issues you face. What you say at these meetings will help the policing teams decide how they should focus their resources in your area. If you think we're getting it right or wrong at the moment, come along and have your say.

Burglary continues to be a problem in Bridlington, specifically Flamborough. In these burglaries jewellery has been taken and on some occasions car keys and subsequently cars. This is known as a Hanoi burglary. Whilst Humberside police continue to try and identify those responsible we ask that residents remain vigilant.
Keep jewellery hidden away. If you have a safe or anything that is lockable, use it.
Neighbourhood watch schemes can also be a huge help to local residents and the police. Word of mouth can be a powerful thing and we rely on a lot of intelligence and information from people who live in the areas we police.
If you are not part of a scheme but are interested then please contact your local officer who can be identified from the Humberside Police website. They can give you further advice on setting up a scheme, joining an existing scheme and even being a coordinator in your area
There have also been two Hanoi burglaries in the North of Bridlington within the space of 48 hours. Offenders have accessed houses, taken car keys and then taken cars.

Shop theft currently accounts for a large portion of crime in Bridlington in January, mainly in the South of Bridlington. This area includes the town centre and main supermarkets. This is something that local officers aim to reduce daily and the shops in Bridlington have great relationships with each other and local officer, passing information and intelligence on potential offenders.
They also link in well with civic CCTV who assist wherever possible

There have been a number of vehicle related crimes in Bridlington in January, mainly in residential areas in and around the Sewerby Road, Jubilee Avenue area.
Offences include vehicle interference, damage and theft from vehicles.
Please consider some of the below advice aimed at reducing your risk of becoming a victim of such crime.
If you have a car alarm, activate it
If you own a work van/vehicle have extra locks fixed and remove tools overnight. Display stickers stating that you do not leave tools in the vehicle. This shows potential criminals that you are security savvy and that the risk may not be worth the reward.
