Welcome to the Frodingham 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.  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?


BEAUCHAMP/EARLS/TALBOT WALK AND HAIG AVENUE - Anti Social Behaviour & Rough sleepers

Police have been made aware of an increased amount of calls relating to Anti-Social behaviour on BEAUCHAMP, EARLS, TALBOT WALK and HAIG AVENUE in Scunthorpe.

Police have been attending the area regularly to disrupt this activity and are working alongside our partnership agencies Safer Neighbourhoods, Environmental Health, Local Councillors and The Forge. 

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 Frodingham community and understand the impact this sort of behaviour has been having on the community and also local businesses. We are working really hard with our partners to use a broad range of options to target those responsible and make Frodingham a Safer and Stronger Community for all. We are also working closely with the council and The Forge to offer support and engagement to those that need it most. 

June 2020 updates: 

  • We have identified a number of youths responsible for causing issues within the area and we are currently working with local Landlords in order to ensure that the anti-social behaviour young people are causing in the area, stops. Landlords have already begun taking tenancy enforcement action against the parents of the young people and we will continue to monitor the situation.
  • Many of the homeless people are currently being housed around the North Lincolnshire area due to COVID 19 and are working with partner agencies who are offering them further support to keep them off the streets permanently.

Frodingham - Drug Supply

We understand there are concerns in respect of drug dealing across the Frodingham community and we are absolutely committed to taking robust action. The information that the local community have provided us during our Humbertalking surveys has proved pivotal in our response. There have been a number of proactive warrants executed by our Operation Galaxy Team with the assistance of your Neighbourhood Team. I would like to reassure the community that our work doesn't stop once a drug warrant is executed. We are currently working in partnership with ONGO Homes, Guinness Housing and private landlords to ensure that further positive action is taken with breach of tenancy. 

If this fails we will continue to use antisocial behaviour legislation that is available to us in order to place closure orders on properties that are involved with drug dealing or cause serious nuisance to the local community.

Your team have previously secured closure orders at properties on LINDSEY STREET and CEMETERY ROAD. We will continue to monitor issues at further properties within the ward and will not hesitate to secure closure orders if problems continue. We have also had some excellent results with private landlords working with us in order to evict their tenants due to drug dealing and anti-social behaviour.

June 2020 updates:

  • We are pleased to report that Guinness Homes have secured possession of a property on CLIFF STREET and we are awaiting an eviction date. We have executed a number of drug warrants at the property and there continues to be issues however, due to current restrictions it has slowed down the eviction process. We would like to reassure the community that we will continue to disrupt the issues that arise from this property until an eviction is secured.
  • Recent drug warrants were executed at CLIFF STREET, WARLEY ROAD, FURNACE SQUARE and HOLGATE ROAD.

I would urge members of the public to continue 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).

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 the ward area 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 use

June 2020 updates:

  • There have been a number of motorcycles stolen from the ward area recently, please can you ensure that if you own a motorcycle that you leave it locked and secure in order to try and reduce the chances of your motorcycle being stolen.
  • We seized an off-road motorcycle from a property on WARWICK ROAD that had been causing issues across the Scunthorpe area.
  • As the weather improves we expect the calls about motorcycles to increase. I would like the community to let us know where the motorcycles are being stored. You can remain anonymous and i can assure you that we will act upon the information you provide. We will also work with landlords who will take tenancy action against tenants who are storing the off-road motorcycles that cause the community issues.

Again, I would encourage anyone with information to make contact on either 101 or alternatively, anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.


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:
