Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

This week’s Op Blitz was delayed in starting on Friday because of a diesel spillage at Phonenix Causeway in Lewes. After this was dealt with, the PCSOs then began an early evening foot patrol in Newhaven Town & Dacre Road car park. A group of 12 youths, with some riding on bikes, were greeted by PCSOs in Dacre Road car park. All of the youths engaged in positive conversation with the PCSOs and were compliant with the officers. One of the youths, who had been reported as an unauthorised absence, was sighted with the group, so the Police were able to stand down from their search. The PCSOs also began delivering first warning letters to from the Chief Inspector about anti-social behaviour. These letters were delivered to youth’s parents in Newhaven and Peacehaven, which were targeted to youths who have come to our attention. The team then got diverted to a call from a vulnerable adult who needed assistance. Later on in the evening, there were reports of some drug dealing in Buckle car park in Seaford. However, when the officers arrived, there was no one seen. After this, there were reports of youths congregating outside Seaford House on Crouch Lane in Seaford. But again, when the officers arrived, there was no one present. From here, the officers continued their patrol in their vehicle where everything was in order.

Op Blitz on Saturday night was a cold, wet and quiet patrol, starting with the team continuing to deliver the first warning letters to youth’s parents. After these were delivered, the PCSOs went over to the Meridian Centre, where a small group of youths were just leaving. Some of the locations that were also patrolled included: Dacre Road car park and McDonalds in Newhaven, Sheepfold, Heathy Brow, Woodlands and Centenary Park. However, all of these areas were all in order.
