What's Happening In Your Area?


Disruption of Drug activity

Further warrants and pro-active patrols are planned that will disrupt drug misuse offences around Bridlington. Officers will continue to use their powers of Stop and Search. Used appropriately, this is a great way of quickly removing drugs from the street and disrupting the activity of those involved. Please report any information that you have in relation to drug supply or misuse via 101 or crime stoppers that you can do anonymously.

Commercial Burglary

There has been an increase in commercial Burglaries in all areas of Bridlington. These are taking place overnight with cash being stolen. Businesses are reminded to remove cash from premises and consider a sign indicating that no cash is left in the premises overnight. A review of general security should also be considered. Officers will be tasked to patrol vulnerable areas.   

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. We are currently aware of complaints of ASB involving youths within the Skate Park in Bridlington and will be increasing high visibility patrols in this area. Operation Endurance is our locality based crime and ASB reduction propriety which focuses on two areas of Bridlington namely the Tennyson Avenue area and West Street area. These areas are benefiting from increased patrols from both community and patrol officers, and also partnership working with the council to address identified issues which are likely to increase crime and ASB issues in these areas. On top of this Operation Topaz addressed ASB over the Halloween and Bonfire period where pro-active patrols were used to nip in the bud any identified individuals who used the period as an excuse to cause mischief.

Christmas Period 

With the approach of Christmas officers will be pro-actively targeting shop lifters and carrying out high visibility patrols in the town centre to reduce the temptation of committing crime on the approach to the festive period. To this end CCTV will be utilised to obtain evidence and secure convictions.

Remembrance Day

Remembrance Day will be on Sunday 10th November which will see the community team supporting partner agencies and the Council with a service through the town centre of Bridlington.

Operation Galaxy – Monday 28 October saw the official launch of a force wide initiative - Operation Galaxy.

Over the last fortnight prior to the launch officers involved in our new proactive task force have been making arrests, gathering intelligence and targeting those responsible for crime. 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
