Police target the ten most prolific criminals
BRIDLINGTON: Extra police have been drafted into the town to target the ten most prolific criminals.
Six officers have been sent to work in Bridlington alongside Inspector Grant Taylor to focus on the top ten offenders in the town.
Police believe they are responsible for a large proportion of drug-dealing, violence, theft and antisocial behaviour.
The Humberside Police CCTV van is also being used in the town to reduce crime and target offenders.
Inspector Grant Taylor, who heads up neighbourhood policing in the town, said the van will be placed in key locations in the town 24 hours a day.
He said: "This a fantastic piece of equipment to use in the Bridlington area as it not only has the ability to record crime and catch criminals in the act, but it can also act as a deterrent putting people off committing crimes."
