Operation Galaxy

Operation Galaxy is our new, proactive task force comprising detectives, officers and staff from Major Crime, Roads Policing, Intelligence, Economic Crime, Police dogs and handlers and various other departments.
They are all now all co-located and are targeting criminals across the Humberside Force area who are causing our communities the most harm.

The team has been up and running since October, and while they are out proactively tackling crime, they are also able to protect and identify vulnerable people, assist in locating missing people and identify individuals with links to organised crime and exploitation, through collating intelligence and information.


Detective Superintendent Martin Smalley, who is part of the Op Galaxy Team: “The remit of Operation Galaxy is to proactively target those responsible for committing crime in our communities, to make the lives of criminals and predators difficult and uncomfortable. It’s all about listening to you, our communities, across the Humberside Force area and acting on what you tell us is a concern in your neighbourhood."


The Op Galaxy team have delivered some great results since their arrival, with over 100 arrests made, numerous warrants executed and thousands of pounds worth of drugs and cash seized.
