Local News

Towards the end of the month we have received around 13 reports of outboard motors being stolen from boats secured in boat compounds. Most have been from the Wilsthorpe compound. We ask the public report anything suspicious they see at the time. Also could boat owners to review their security arrangements.

We would also like to highlight that we have been getting repeated calls to the Alcohol Prohibition Zone on South Cliff Gardens (Ebor Shelter). A reminder that officers do have the power of initiate a fine for those who flout the rules.

There have been issues with young drivers speeding in the area of Flamborough, Bempton Lane and Limekiln Lane recently. We will be looking to use are various powers to combat this.

We have also had a number of reported sightings of drones that have been flying in the area of St. Hilda Street, Edwardian Drive and Savage Road in the late evenings. There is lots of legislation regarding the flying of drones, and the reports that we have had in respect of these it is clear that the legislation is not being adhered to. Please be mindful if you have or own a drone and make yourselves aware of the legislation that goes with the flying of these aircraft

We have received several reports that off road and quad bike users are riding in an Anti-Social manner. A section 59 warning was issued in the field behind Matson Court and we are aware of issues close to Gypsey Road. These problems will likely increase once farmers start to harvest as these bikes tend to be ridden on stubble fields. We are also mindful that this may heighten the risk of hay and stack fires and would ask the public to report any concerns they have. We also ask that farmers consider the below advice from Humberside Fire and Rescue.

We are specifically targeting County Lines crime as part of Op Galaxy’s intensified action. This is where a young persons may be coerced into dealing for older persons and out of area gangs. We have recently been working with the British Transport Police and have identified some young people who have been exploited in this way.

Rural Crime – Farm Thefts

In response to several thefts from Farms in rural locations surrounding Bridlington we have targeted patrols to these areas. During such a patrol a suspect vehicle was recovered and reported thefts appear to have ceased.

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.

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.
