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?


We encourage everyone to follow the Government guidance and remember #HandsFaceSpace.

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?



Protecting vulnerable persons on our ward is one of the key objectives for the Croft Baker Team , and of the Force.

Vulnerability comes in different forms, establishing and considering vulnerabilities of persons involved,   including victims, witnesses, suspects and children etc.

The team will also:-

As part of the COVID vacination role out, The "BIG LOCAL" organised Stay Safe Booklets with useful information that they might not otherwise recived the Neighbourhood Team supported this by distributing at vacination center. This will again be further supported in the coming month with a further print and distribution #WhereYouAre.

We will also support schools with any online delivery of presentations they require to students.


We have again seen a continued decrease 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.

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. Operation Galaxy continues and we are targeting offenders that are suppling drugs in your area. 

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.

We welcome new staff members and say farewell to another.

This month we say farewell to PCSO Abi CHAMBERS who's moving up the road to Sidney Sussex ward, thankfully this will not affect your local staffing levels as we welcome PCSO Teresa HUXFORD coming the opposite way to revitalise the team.

We are also joined by PC Stacey SOWERBY. Stacey is fresh from one of our patrol teams and will compliment the two constables already in post.
