Welcome to the Bridlington Neighbourhood Policing Area

About Bridlington

Welcome to the Bridlington Neighbourhood Policing Team, which cover the wards of Bridlington South, Bridlington North and Bridlington Central & Old Town. 

Bridlington is the largest costal town in the East Riding of Yorkshire with a population of approximately 35,000 residents, and is a popular tourist destination. During the summer months the population can more than double. 

With this comes a thriving night time economy, and all the associated alcohol related issues. We pride ourselves on working closely with our communities to find out what issues are affecting you the most, and you have told us that the illicit use of class ‘A’ drugs is a major concern. We work closely with other organisations to deal with those whose behaviour impacts on the community. Our previous operations have resulted in substantial amounts of seizures of drugs destined for the streets of Bridlington and we continue to focus on this area. 

As your Neighbourhood Policing Team, we have responsibility for a large area of rural countryside and farmland stretching from the North Yorkshire boundary to the Flamborough Headland Coast. We have a high number of Wildlife Crime Officers, who are dedicated to investigating specialist rural crime. We’re committed to solving long term crime patterns, dealing with anti-social behaviour and protecting the vulnerable.

Update From Inspector Rob Cocker

As your Neighbourhood Policing Team we are proud to be engaging with our local communities and listening to your concerns. Recent public surveys with residents indicated a real pride in the local amenities and a strong community spirit. We want to support you and address your concerns to ensure that Bridlington remains a safe place to live and support the town as East Riding of Yorkshire’s premier tourist resort.
