You will still see us out and about as we continue to do our job and keep our communities safe. As always there are a number of ways you can get in touch with us if you need us.

Stay informed through our social media channels, find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

What's Happening In Your Area?


Local News 

Officers using the mobile police van visited residents at Marine Valley over the weekend to carry out a street surgery. We spoke to residents to listen to their concerns and received positive feedback that the police are working closely with the local authority to address ongoing parking issues.

Concerns were also raised regarding cars parking on the car park to the rear of the Caravel bar playing loud music in the early hours of the morning. Regular spot checks will be carried out and PCSO SMITH will continue to liaise with local residents.

The mobile police office also visited Flamborough on South Sea Way speaking to residents and giving advice regarding scams and security.


​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 town centre of Bridlington and will be increasing high visibility patrols in this area.

Operation Galaxy

Our Operation 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.

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. Please report any information that you have in relation to drug supply or misuse via 101 or crime stoppers that you can do anonymously.

Not on our coast! 

That’s our message to people looking to come into Bridlington to deal Class A drugs.   On the 5th and 6th of August Bridlington officers have made arrests in relation to drug supply offences around Bridlington. An adult male was arrested on Promenade, Bridlington after a drug deal was witnessed by an officer. On the 5th two adult females were arrested on Marshall Ave and properties searched on Marshall Avenue and Lansdowne Road.

17/08/20 - Last week alone we arrested six people and seized quantities of heroin, cocaine and cash from people linked to drug-related crime in the resort.    Neighbourhood Beat Manager PC Kevin Jones said: “Drugs and drug-related crime can have a huge impact on communities and it’s not something that we will tolerate here in Bridlington. Over the last week we have arrested six people, carried out searches of people we believe to be involved in the supply of drugs, disrupted suspected drug deals and seized more than £1,000 in cash.  We’ve also recovered quantities of what we believe to be heroin and crack cocaine and we’ll continue to target those suspected of being involved in this kind of offending.”

As a result of the activity:

• Jordan Spalding, 18, of Moser Avenue, Bradford, was remanded to appear before Hull Crown Court on Wednesday, 11 September, 2020. He is charged with assault, possession with intent to supply heroin, possession with intent to supply cocaine and obstructing a police officer.
• Lewis O’Donnell, 18, of Thonfield Avenue, Bradford, is bailed to appear before Hull Magistrates Court on Wednesday, 11 September, 2020, charged with possession of heroin and possession of cocaine.
• Adrian Walsh, 22, of Tennyson Avenue, Bridlington, is bailed to appear before Hull Magistrates Court on Monday, 9 September, charged with driving without a licence.
• An 18-year-old Bridlington man was charged with breaching his bail but the offence was withdrawn at court.
• A 32-year-old Bridlington woman was arrested on suspicion of supplying a controlled drug and a 17-year-old London boy was arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply class A drugs.
Both have been released under investigation, pending further enquiries.

PC Jones added: “By working together, we can make a real impact on offending of this kind, so my plea to everyone living and working in Bridlington is to keep the information coming.   If you have concerns about crime in your area, speak to your local officers or give us a call on our non-emergency 101 line.  The more we know about where and when these people are operating, the more effective we can be in putting a stop to it.”
If you would rather not give your name, you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.   If someone is in immediate danger, always call 999.
