What's Happening In Your Area?


Off Road Motorcycles - Across the ward

June 2020

With the good weather that we have been having, off road motorbikes have continued to been a problem. There continues to be a steady stream of calls for service.  We continued with enquiries with residents in the area in respect of identifying others on bikes and breaching them in respect of their tenancy with ONGO. A Community Trigger has been opened for consideration, due to issues on Crosby Fields and we are working closely with North Lincolnshire Council, Ongo Homes and Safer Neighbourhoods in ressolving the issues. As part of Op ATOLL, which will be expanded across the Ward area to combat the youths who remain active, but have generally moved on from the initially identified hotspot areas

More recently, and through Operation Yellowfin, we have been visiting petrol stations and giving advice regarding selling fuel to under 16's and the type of containers they are using to purchase the fuel.

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 in some areas 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 alternatively, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Anti Social Behaviour (ASB)

June 2020

Operation Atoll continues to take place, although there was an inital reduction in ASB problems due to Covid-19, this has seen a increase in associated incidents compared to the previous month, there seems to be large groups congregating around certain areas of the ward causing issues. Covid-19 had reduced the joint visits to these properties of people identified as causing these problems but these will increase resume as we contiue to come out of lockdown.

In recent weeks there has been problems with large groups of youths gathering with the sole purpose of inhaling nitrous Oxide canisters and then causing ASB issues. We continue to gather information on the youths concerned and reviewing each and every incident for any potential offences.

Sainsburys Supermarket.

We understand that there have been some ongoing concerns in respect of antisocial behaviour being caused by groups of youths reportedly congregating at Sainsbury’s Supermarket, Scunthorpe.

We have been working closely with local partners to identify those responsible while also seeing that changes are made to the local environment so as to design out the problems.

We are also proud to share that we have been working with Sainsburys who are working hard to engage with those responsible and support activities to divert them away from such behaviour. 

When suspects have been identified, proportionate action is being taken to hold them to account while also diverting them away from causing further issues. 

Working with colleagues from the Office and Police & Crime Commissioner for Humberside, we have seen the arrival of Tommy Coyle’s Box Clever Project - this new initiative was to engage with young people across Scunthorpe. The double-decker bus was parked in Sainsburys Car Park and did bring healthy and positive activities to communities to Scunthorpe Town Centre including a kitted out gym and a dedicated youth space. Tommy and his team will be worked alongside partners from young peoples’ services to deliver sports activities, arts, craft, music, as well as offering advice on life choices. We will be hoping that this initiative can return to the area after proving popular.

Household Burglaries: Crosby and Park

Recently there had been a spate of burglaries across the ward, the Crosby and Park team have been working hard to provide support and guidance to prevent further offences; to develop intelligence as to those responsible; while also speaking with our communities about places stolen property may be sold or disposed.  

Of concern, we recently completed some patrols of the area and posted leaflets about crime prevention advice in certain areas of the ward making them aware of the problems. 

Please help us  by making such you keep your property safe and give criminals a hard time. 

While a number of enquiries are being developed, we would encourage everyone to take a look on our website to find a range of security advice and guidance for your home.

If anybody has information about those responsible for these type of offences, then please contact us through the 101 number or alternatively, by calling the independent charity Crimestoppers (0800 555 111).

Updates - Crosby


As we continue with Operation Yellowfin, today petrol stations in the local ward area were visited and given advice regards selling fuel to Under 1's and also ensuring that if containers are used that they are of the correct standard.

June 2020

Sheffield Park Avenue have been having issues with speeding lotorists in the area, late at night. There is a problem exploration being carried out with local residents. One driver has already been warned about his manor of driving and once feedback has been recived there will be more to come.

Tensions have been high in several communities of the East Timorese residents on the ward. Engagement has been carried out, in company with the Community Cohesion Officer, with several families of the East Timor Community. There has been an increase of patrols in the problem areas, being to and from their places of work. Letters have been handed out to the East Timor Community advising them of these issues and how we can assist.

Social Media continues to be used and is well received, together with our business usual media posts, which have been very active and has resulted in a positive interaction and feedback from our users.

May 2020

There has been some days of action, however on the majority of days we have been supporting Operation Cameron in respect of Covid-19 restrictions. There has been several large gatherings that have been dispersed and educated on the restrictions.

Issues regards Mirfield Park have dropped off due to the parks being closed as part of the Covid-19 restrictions.

Within the schools, although running on a skeleton staff and pupils, we have still attended some and given reassurance visits.

 There are several addresses that we continue to gather information on with a view of possible investigations and closure orders. of these addresses Operation Galaxy have executed warrants and a couple of other addresses have been successful in obtaining closure notices. We continue to look for other addresses causing issues in which Operation Galaxy can leave their calling card. 

The issues raised regards the social distancing by different Communities working at Two Sisters, has reduced considerably. Contact was made with HR within the company for them to advise their staff regarding distancing in general, especially when travelling to and from work. The team have subsequently, attended, with the cohesion officer and reminded staff of the restrictions by providing a letter in their own language.


As we continue to deal with nuisance motorcycles, one was seized from an address on the Crosby area after being seen by officers riding about on footpaths # OPYellowfin 


A further address on Diana Street had been causing issues in the local commuity and again the local policing team have gathered information and intelligence concerning this address and been successful in obtaining a closure notice by the courts.



An address on Diana Street that was causing a lot of ASB in the area has had a closure order submitted.


  • Problem residents known for drug dealing have now been removed from property on Sheffield St through partnership working between local policing team and the Landlord.

  • 2 x motorbikes have been seized under section 59 powers. One from Crosby Ave & one Dewsbury Ave # OPYellowfin. Please let us know on 101 if you can give us any  information regarding nuisance motorcycles.


We have been working together with Ongo in relation to drug dealing at an address on Berkeley St.  This has since resulted in the tenant being evicted


We are currently running Op Atol in response to calls for service of anti social behaviour around Robinson Close/Theodore Road area. So far 8 offending youths have been identified and all have been visited in their homes and issued warning letters.
