Welcome to the Grimsby Neighbourhood Policing Area

About Grimsby

Welcome to the Grimsby Neighbourhood Policing Team, which covers the wards of Freshney, Park, South, West Marsh and Yarborough.

This Policing area includes the Town Centre, the industrial areas of Pyewipe and Alexandra Dock. We also have the housing areas of West Marsh, Wybers Wood, Willows, Yarborough, Nunsthorpe and Grange. We have a variety of educational premises within the area which range from smaller primary schools to Academies and the further education of Franklin College and Grimsby Institute. 

We have dedicated staff for each ward who have regular contact with those living and working in our communities. This is an important part of neighbourhood policing, in terms of building up trust and confidence and encouraging people to report their concerns. 

We make constant assessments around crime and antisocial behaviour and this includes matters such as nuisance motorbikes which have been an issue recently. We have responded to this and had some motorbikes seized and people prosecuted. We know how reassuring it is to members of our community to see officers out on the beat, and have been sending staff out to where the problems are.

We want you to feel safe and reassured that we are there for you. We will work with our partners to ensure you get the best service and outcomes.

Update From Inspector Martin Hopper

I have over 24 year’s police service, most of which has been spent on the south bank. I’ve spent over 20 years working within the Grimsby area so I know the area extremely well. I also have lots of experience of different roles within the police having previously been a traffic officer, a dog handler, a public order trainer and a custody sergeant. I’ve also worked on a number of large scale events locally, regionally and nationally - policing the London 2012 Olympics is definitely one of my career highlights.

Whilst I am new to this role I am no stranger to North East Lincolnshire and the issues the area faces on a daily basis. I applied for this role as I felt it’s an area of policing where you can genuinely make a difference. I want to get out and personally meet partners and key people, and support my staff to do their jobs. I want members of the local community to enjoy living where they do, and to feel safe in their own homes.
