Welcome to the Brumby Neighbourhood Policing Team

Coronovirus (Covid-19) update

We encourage everyone to follow the Government guidance and #StayHomeSaveLives. For this reason we will not be holding any more engagement events with our communities for the foreseeable future. Whilst we love seeing you, these events are non-essential in the current circumstances.   

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.

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.

What's Happening In Your Area?


Youth Related Anti-Social BehaviourWestcliff and Riddings

We have made a number of arrests in respect of crime and antisocial behaviour around the Westcliff estate, and 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. 


25 January 2020: 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. One male has been summonsed to court

Off Road Motorcycles - Across the ward

Over recent months we have visited thousands of households across North Lincolnshire and we understand that the antisocial use of off road motorcycles is causing concern in your community. The policing team have been working really hard to respond to local concerns in respect of this issue and while good progress was made around Foxhills Rd, Scunthorpe we recognise that there is still more to do.

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 continue to undertake Op Yellowfin 'days of action' which is seeing more and more nuisance motorbikes being stopped and seized. We are absolutely committed to continuing in this approach while this remains a priority issue. You can see some of our recent seizures by scrolling through the Twitter and Facebook feeds below. 

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 alternatviely, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.


25 January 2020: Nuisance motorbikes are still an issue in the area. Several cars and motorbikes have been seized and taken off the road in recent months.

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. There have been a number of proactive warrants executed over recent months along with properties being closed down under our Antisocial Behaviour Legislation. Recently, this has seen two houses being closed down on Canterbury Close. You said these were causing an issue - we have taken action to protect you from crime and antisocial behaviour. 

We have recently 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. 

This work will continue. We are working hard to understand the nature of this problem and urge members of the public to report their concerns to their local team, to police through the 101 number or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).


25 January 2020: 2 warrants have taken place on the Riddings area in the past 3 months. Investigations are now ongoing. This is in direct response from the community team listening to what the community is saying and taking action on its behalf #yousaidwedid. A closure order is being applied for.

3 October 2019: There has been several arrests of local drug dealers in the area these involving local youths. We continue gathering intelligence to disrupt and arrest local dealers and will continue with high visibility patrols to reassure the public.

FRAUD/SCAMS: Westcliff and Riddings

These are difficult times, it is in these times that fraudsters look to exploit vulnerability and as more and more people self-isolate then vulnerability will increase. Attached are number of useful links that people can follow for advice as per below:
