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.  Don't forget to also sign up to My Community Alert and receive community alerts directly to your devices.

For incidents that don’t require an immediate response call our non-emergency 101 line. You can also report non-emergency crimes online via our reporting portal. In an emergency always dial 999.

Youth Related Anti-Social BehaviourWestcliff and Riddings

Several arrests have been made in the last few weeks relating to crime and anti-social behaviour of local youths. We continue to conduct high visibility patrols in the area tackling this anti-social behaviour. Two local males have been arrested and one currently has Bail conditions not to enter Lichfield Avenue or be in the area of Tesco Express on Lichfield Avenue. The team remain focused on maintaining the momentum of activity over recent weeks into the months ahead. 

We’re really proud to be part of the Westcliff community and understand the impact this sort of behaviour has been having on the community and also our local shops and community centres. We are working really hard with our partners to use a broad range of options to target those responsible and make Westcliff a Safer and Stronger Community for all. We have recently seen the launch of the new multi agency Antisocial Behaviour Panel across North Lincolnshire with a number of referrals already being made from across the urban wards of Scunthorpe. 

Working with North Lincolnshire Council's Safer Neighbourhood Team, and partners from the Youth Offending Service, we have been delivering some targetted interventions with those young people identified as causing repeated issues across the area.

Early indications of this approach are promising and we will regularly review our actions to make sure we can meet the needs and concerns of the local community. 

Updates:

25 January 2020: Several arrests have been made in the last few months relating to crime and anti-social behaviour of local youths. We continue to conduct high visibility patrols in the area tackling this anti-social behaviour.

Off Road Motorcycles - Across the ward

With the good weather that we have been having, off road motorbikes have been a problem all over North Lincolnshire including Westcliff and Riddings. There has been a steady stream of calls for service and the local policing team have been working really hard to respond to local concerns in respect of this issue. Nuisance motorbikes are still an issue in the area. Several motorbikes have been seized and taken off the road in the last few weeks.

Over recent weeks and months we will continue to prioritise our activity around this issue, included a number of tactics as part of Operation Yellowfin.

We want to be clear- we will not be tolerating the criminal use of motorcycles in this way and we will use all powers at our disposal to recover bikes being used in this way and to hold those responsible to account. 

We are appealing for information from our local communities as to the details of who is responsible for riding these bikes and also where they are being stored or housed and so would encourage people with information to make contact on either 101 or alternatively, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Nuisance Motorbikes - Three illegal motorbikes have been seized during June and a number of riders prosecuted. Operation Yellowfin days of action will continue. Officers have been working with Trading Standards to deal with the petrol stations that are selling fuel to illegal riders.

Neighbourhood Officers have also spent time working with our Roads Policing colleagues targeting other illegal users.

Drug Dealing:  Westcliff

We understand there continues to be concerns in respect of drug dealing across the Westcliff community and we remain absolutely committed to taking robust action.

You said these were causing an issue - we have taken action to protect you from crime and antisocial behaviour. 

We have become aware of an increase in the use of Nitrous Oxide gas and that our local communities report finding discarded micro cannisters on the streets. We have issued a HEALTH WARNING in respect of the recreational use of Nitrous Oxide which can have serious health risks including :

  • Loss of Blood Pressure
  • Heart Attack
  • Fainting
  • Bone Marrow Suppression
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Poisoning of the Central Nervous System

The above risks can increase if combined with alcohol or other drugs. Our advice is clear - do not inhale this substance and seek medical advice if consumed. 

It is an offence to supply, or offer to supply a psychoactive substance under the Psychoactive Substance Act 2016 - which could lead to a sentence of up to 7 years and / or a fine if convicted. 

A house on Whitfield Road was searched under warrant and three arrests for drug offences made. Tenancy action has now started against the occupants.

Officers are applying for a Closure Order against the problem address on Selby Court after arrests were made for drug dealing.

In recent weeks there has been evidence of local youths inhaling Nitrous Oxide, canisters being left around the area. We continue gathering intelligence to disrupt and arrest local dealers and will continue with high visibility patrols to reassure the public. We are appealing for information from our local communities please contact 101 or alternatively, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555111

A closure order is being applied for on a property in the Westcliff area with a view to removing the occupants who are causing issues in the area.
