What's Happening In Your Area?



Police have been made aware of continuing 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. 

A number of youths have been spoken to and referred to the ASB Panel

Grange Lane North and Warley Road Park

We have also heard concerns around Grange Lane North and Warley Road Park so will be conducting high visibility patrols to address the issues raised to us.

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. 

July 2021 updates: 

Officers continue conducting hi-visibility mobile & foot patrols in all area's of concern and we would urge anyone to report any issues via 101 and to also contact the council if relevant.

We are also currently working with partner agencies including landlords regarding a small minority of youths who continue to frequent this area and we are taking action to ensure these youths don't return to the area.#

If you have any concerns or are experiencing any issues in your area please get in touch VIA 101 OR 999 in an Emergency and we will try to help.

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. 

With help from the Police, ONGO have taken back control an address known to be frequented by drug users

July  2021 updates:

Further warrants are being planned around the Frodingham Ward in areas of concern

The Frodingham Ward area has been part of the recent drugs dog initiative 

Your Neighbourhood Team have conducted some stop searches on people suspected of drug dealing within the Frodingham Ward and this work will continue in order to disrupt their activity. We are currently working with our colleagues from Operation Galaxy to identify and execute warrants at some further properties on the ward.

We will be follwing up on new information around drug use in the Frodingham Area

We are well aware that there are further properties within the ward area where drug dealing activity is taking place including on the street drug dealing. As the Neighbourhood Policing Team for the area we can assure you that all information given to us is treated in the strictest confidence, all reports will be followed up and we don't have to visit you in person but can speak on the telephone if you prefer. You can let us know what is going on by calling 101 or use the My Community Alert online system.

You can also call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 Anonymously -  Crimestopers aren't interested in your name, just what you know

Off Road Motorcycles - Across the ward

This month has seen an increase in the amount of Anti Social Illegal motorcycle around the area and we will continue to be out and about on  covering the Scunthorpe and surounding areas throughout July.

Recently on Operation Yellowfin we have utilised high powered cameras and even a drone which have produced some high level images of motorcylces being ridden with no considration for others.

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. However this month there have been no new reports of Off Road Motorcycles

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

July 2021 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 would urge 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.
We conducted Operation Yellowfin days of action during March where a number of motorcycles were stopped and checked by officers. Due to the Light nights and Longer evenings we have seen a slight increase in the use of these illegal motorcycles across the ward. We are aware that there are a minority of people who continue to ride these illegal motorcycles, we will continue to try and identify these riders and prosecute them where possible.
We have planned further Operation Yellowfin days of action throughout June so watch this space. Further days of action are already planned for the following months

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:
