High visibility Preventative foot patrol is continuing throughout the town centre streets under our Operation Gatehouse which is the community team’s locality based crime and ASB reduction operation within the town centre and surrounding streets.

On 10/12/20 the community team assisted the East Riding of Yorkshire Council with the execution of a Community Protection Notice which has resulted in the removal of litter and hazardous items around the seating shelter within Victoria Gardens on Quay Road, Bridlington.

On 02/12/20 the community team joined forces with ward councillors Tim Norman and Andy Walker during a street walk of the town centre and adjoining streets discussing how partnership working can help improve the environment and assist with the reduction of Anti-Social Behaviour and Drug Misuse under our Operation Gatehouse.


Anti-Social Behaviour

All calls for service relating to Anti-Social Behaviour are attended by the Community Team which may also involve the joint working with the ERYC Anti-Social Behaviour Team. We work closely together with other partner agencies to reduce Anti-Social Behaviour and to mitigate the risk of harm that it brings to the Community. During the latest national lockdown we have been patrolling outdoor public areas and areas of high footfall, dealing with any suspected breaches of COVID and working in partnership with ERYC to deal with individuals and businesses.

Operation Galaxy

Our Op Galaxy officers are focused on proactively tackling crime and those responsible for it, but our task force is also able to identify vulnerabilities and help vulnerable people while we are out in our communities.

Follow us online and on social media for all the updates for Operation Galaxy as we get them

Operation Galileo

Officers from across the East Riding of Yorkshire area continue to engage in the prevention and detection of wildlife offences and poaching across the ward area. Officers will be using intelligence, new equipment and volunteers in helping to identify offenders and obtaining evidence to form prosecution cases. If you see people with dogs in fields, and if safe to do so, please ring 101 and report the incident.

Disruption of Drug activity

Further warrants and pro-active patrols are planned that will disrupt drug misuse offences around Bridlington this includes the assistance of our Pro-Active Teams based in Hull. 

If you have information that you believe we need to know, speak to your local team, call us on our non-emergency 101 line, or message us @humberbeat on Twitter or Facebook.

If you’d rather not give your name, call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
