What's Happening In Your Area?


Local news

We are pleased to report that three males have been charged with 5 counts of theft linked to the theft of lead from church roofs in the area. Officers continue to conduct HI visibility patrols in the Driffield rural areas and Hornsea in an attempt to combat rural crime/farm machinery thefts.

We have received reports towards the end of the month of eighteen outboard motors being stolen from boats within boat compounds in Hornsea (5) and Wilsthorpe (13). These appear to have occurred on two separate nights. We ask you to report anything suspicious and consider upgrading securing if you are a boat owner.

Three persons where stopped on land with dogs and all were given a section 35 warning and given fairway letters regarding their behaviour.

Officers have also conducted speed surveys in the villages between us and Hornsea. We also assisted on a number of successful drug warrants within the area in line with Operation Galaxy.    

We have also noted an increase in Anti-Social Behaviour due to the lockdown being lifted and youths spending time in parks while not being in education. We you ask you to report any concerns that you may have.

WARNING - Youths jumping in to cold water rivers/canal locks. There have been numerous reports to police regarding young people swimming in rivers and lakes. We would like to remind you of the dangers and real risk to life. The body’s response to being suddenly or unexpectedly immersed into cold water of around 15°C or lower will seriously affect your breathing and capability to move. Also with the effects of alcohol the situation can become very dangerous and potentially life threatening.

Rural Crime – Farm Thefts

In response to several thefts from Farms in rural locations surrounding Bridlington we have targeted patrols to these areas. During such a patrol a suspect vehicle was recovered and reported thefts appear to have ceased.

Officers will continue to conduct drop-ins to farms and businesses to offer advice on target hardening their assets. Fly tipping remains a focus with officers working alongside the East Riding Council Environmental teams to apprehend the culprits.

Residential & Commercial Burglaries

Residential and commercial premises have been targeted in Driffield and surrounding villages. Resources are being directed to vulnerable areas however we would ask householders and businesses to review their security arrangements and upgrade them as required. Also we would like the public to be vigilant and report, at the time, any suspicious incidents

Operation Galileo

Officers from across the East Riding of Yorkshire area continue to engage in the prevention and detection of wildlife offences and poaching across the ward area. Officers will be using intelligence, new equipment and volunteers in helping to identify offenders and obtaining evidence to form prosecution cases. If you see people with dogs in fields, and if safe to do so, please ring 101 and report the incident. 

Operation Galaxy

Operation Galaxy has focused on proactively tackling crime and those responsible for it with numerous arrests made and illegal goods seized. Please take a look at the news section on our website for frequent full updates and details of arrests made.
