Welcome to the Wolds 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?



Our priorities remain the same.  We are there and out and about for you, even in these  testing times. Due to the current situation, our main priority is the issues and problems that may arise from this. What we would like is for people to contact us or the council where there are concerns for vulnerabilities. Now is the time to be keeping an eye out for your neighbours, family and friends and as such, if there is something that your local policing team can do, then do not hesitate to contact us via the usual route - 101 - non-emergency and 999 for emergency purposes.

I want to assure you that we will be there for you as best we can under the circumstances whilst still responding to our normal day to day business. Please be safe out there and remember the advice and guidance you have been provided with from the Government.

Off Road Motorcycles 

Over the recent months we have visited households across North East Lincolnshire, and understand that the antisocial use of off road motorcycles is causing concern in your community – particularly on Bradley Pitches. 

The policing team have been working hard, and will continue to do so, to respond to local concerns in respect of this issue. We will not be tolerate the criminal use of motorcycles in this way and we will use all powers at our disposal to recover bikes and hold those responsible for this behaviour to account.

Over recent months we will continue to prioritise our activity around this issue, including a number of tactics as part of Operation Yellowfin.We are absolutely committed to continuing in this approach, working in joint partnership with other wards areas and agencies, while this remains a priority issue. 

If you have any information about where the bikes are being stored, or who is involved, then please do report via 101 or contact your local team in strict confidence. We are grateful for information we have already received which has allowed us to take appropriate action against offenders.

Neighbour Disputes:

We are aware of the impact long-running neighbour disputes can have, especially on people’s emotional and mental wellbeing. We are committed to helping the community by working closely with involved parties, and our partner agencies, to alleviate the upset caused. We want to take an early intervention approach to prevent such disputes escalating, and establish mediation for all involved.

We would encourage you to contact your local team if you want advice and we will do our very best to either assist you ourselves or by referring/signposting you to the agency best placed to do so.


The Wolds Ward has seen an increase in burglaries, including that of outbuildings such as sheds. With the easing of government restrictions, we would like reiterate preventative measures that can be applied to your property.

Homes with no security measures in place are five times more likely to be burgled than those with simple security measures. Taking just a few steps can make a big difference in keeping your home safe from burglary.

Here are a few tips:

  • Lock your doors and windows every time you leave the house, even when you're just out in the garden, remembering to double-lock UPVC doors (lift handle and turn key)
  • Hide all keys, including car keys, out of sight and away from the letterbox (remember a device could be used to hook keys through the letterbox)
  • Install a visual burglar alarm (as part of a suite of prevention measures - a burglar alarm on its own will not prevent entry to your home)
  • Install good outside lighting.
  • Get a trusted neighbour to keep an eye on your property.
  • Leave radios or lights in your house on a timer to make the property appear occupied.
  • Make sure the fences around your garden are in good condition.
  • Secure bikes at home by locking them to an immovable object inside a locked shed or garage.
  • Keep ladders and tools stored away; don't leave them outside where they could be used to break into your home.
  • Ensure side gates are locked to prevent access to the rear of the property.
  • Ensure rear fencing is in good repair
  • Improve natural surveillance at the front of your property i.e. trim high hedges
  • Mark your property with postcode and house number and register your property for free with immobilise.
  • Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
  • Remove valuables from view of ground floor windows
  • Store any high value items (i.e. jewellery, passports) in a properly secured safe

If you see or hear anything suspiciously please report it on 101/999. Alternatively, if you wish to remain anonymous you can provide the information via CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.
