Croft Baker

Welcome to the Croft Baker Neighbourhood Policing Team

The ward covered by the Croft Baker Policing Team incorporates an urban area which benefits from recreational resources including Cleethorpes Beach, The Pier, and Arcades. The main shopping area in the resort is along St. Peters Avenue, with further shopping areas on Sea View Street, the High Street, and Alexandra Road. 

There are also a number of public houses, cafes, restaurants and fast food take away establishments in the area.


We are all experiencing challenging times right now. Coronavirus (also know as COVID-19) is having a huge impact not only on our personal lives but also businesses and your jobs. We just need you to know that, as your local neighbourhood policing team, we are still out and about conducting patrols and assisting those who are the most vulnerable within our communities. 

  • Do we know of anyone vulnerable who may need our help?
  • Are you aware of any Policing issues in the area as a result of the COVID-19 virus?

Remember to visit our website for up to date information and to see our current Ward priorities.

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.  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.

What's Happening In Your Area?


Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Please do your part in reducing the spread of COVID 19, by adhering to the new law by not having more than six people in your home at any one time. 

The following advice has been taken from the government webiste and is correct at the time of being published. Please keep uptodate by checking 

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of a new continuous cough or a high temperature or a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia).

If you develop these symptoms, however mild, or you have received a positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test result, then you should immediately self-isolate stay at home for at least 7 days from when your symptoms started. If you live with others, all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. See the stay at home guidance and this explanatory diagram for further information.

You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation. If you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, or your condition gets worse, or your symptoms do not get better after 7 days, then use the NHS 111 online service. If you have do not have internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999

If you have any symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), you should arrange a test by visiting NHS.UK, or contact 119 via telephone if you do not have internet access.

Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and water or hand sanitiser, particularly after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, before you eat or handle food, or when you get to work or arrive home

Cover your mouth and nose with disposable tissues when you cough or sneeze. If you do not have a tissue, sneeze into the crook of your elbow, not into your hand. Dispose of tissues into a disposable rubbish bag and immediately wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser.

If you can, wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet. Social distancing, hand washing and covering coughs and sneezes, remain the most important measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Face coverings do not replace these. See the staying safe outside your home guidance, and you can find guidance on how to wear and make a cloth face covering.

Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.

Do not forget as of the 24th July, it will manditory to wear a face mask/covering before entering ANY retail outlet. We are working closely with our retail businesses to ensure everyone understands the requirement and are encouraging staff to refuse entry into their store if you are not wearing a face covering. 




Since the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions, we’ve seen an increase in the number of burglaries, both commercial and residential being reported to us in recent weeks. In order to keep your home and/or businesses safe, we advise you to follow these simple Crime Prevention steps:

  • Ensure your locks and security devices are of a high quality and specification.
  • Always lock your doors and windows before leaving for work, and going to bed.
  • Take your house and vehicle keys with you when you go to bed to keep them safe. You will also then be able to quickly locate them to aid your escape, if you are unfortunate enough to have a fire in your house.
  • Keep high value items, such as laptops and tablets, out of sight from windows on the ground floor 

If you see anyone acting in a suspicious manner, in a non emergency situation dail 101 (police None emergency number) and report the circumstances to us. In an emergency situation dail 999, keep yourself safe and await our arrival.

During the month of September we have, we have charged two males for two seperate "Commercial Burglaries" they have been remanded for court, awaiting to go to trial. We will update you further once they have been to court.

Drugs supply and misuse on the increase in the Croft Baker Ward

We are taking a no nonsence, proactive stance on drug related offences. However, we need your help, to tackle the recent increase on our ward area.  The information that has been provided to us by members of the community has gone a long way towards the successful drugs warrents being executed under "Operation Galaxy" With your Neighbourhood Policing Team, Op Galaxy teams are working rebustly towards beating the drug suppliers and users within your community.

Our assurance to you.

You can rest assured and sleep peacefully, that any information you supply to the police is handled in the stricktest confidence, your details are NEVER divulged to anyone in or outside of the Police organisation apart from those officers dealing with the incoming inteligence.


Following #CroftBaker Neighbourhood Community Team carrying out Humber talk surveys, concerns where raised with regards drug dealing in the local area.The team have gathered evidence and had a warrant sworn out under the misuse of drugs act.


With the support of our community the local neighbourhood team has been gathering information and inteligence in relation to the issue highlighted by yourselves.

On Wednaesday 23rd September a drugs warrant was carried out at Arundel Place Cleethorpes by our colleagues #OpGalaxy class A drugs and cash have been seized and two male's arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs with intent to supply.

On Thursday 17th September a drugs warrant was carried out at Curzon Court Cleethorpes by our colleagues #OpGalaxy class A drugs and cash have been seized and one male arrested on suspicion of possession of drugs with intent to supply.

Drugs are an issue that effects many lives – the impact of those involved is many, Offenders who take drugs will target properties and shops in order to fund their habit, which can cause burglaries to spike as they have. They also have an impact on the shops as thefts rise, although COVID is possibly aiding a slight reduction in that currently.

Drug use/supply also effects local communities as it often causes disruption to home life to those around the subjects or subject address. Our challenges are to target those involved in this type of crime – inteligence gathering for warrants at address’s, using social media in the way of My Community Alerts, Facebook & Twitter bringing the issue to the attention of members of our community to highten your awareness and to encourage reporting problems to us.

We utilise local groups – ward councillors, housing partnerships to target those that are effecting the lives of those around them. At the same time, putting support in for those that need it should they be displaced or be put at risk as a result of police actions carried out.

If you see any suspicious activity that may be related to drug taking or dealing, please call us on the 101 number or go online and report your concerns via "Crime Stoppers", you do not even need to give your personal details.
