Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Op Blitz on Friday night was a very quiet night for PCSOs Catton & Crouch. All the ASB hotspot, including Pevensey Bay Road and the Crumbles Retail Park, were patrolled with everything being all in order. There was one phone call to the Op Blitz phone from a member of the public reporting that there was a noisy party occurring next door to them. However when the officer arrived, there were no signs of a party or any noise disturbances.

Op Blitz on Saturday night saw PCSOs Wilkinson & Camille made their first appearance working together to tackle the ASB hotspots. A very windy evening with ‘PC Rain’ well on form throughout the shift meant for overall a fairly quiet Saturday night. The latest addition to the Blitz hotspot checklist is the Bandstand which is where they spent most of their time this evening. The Bandstand was added after recent reports of youths gathering in numbers. On their first visit, they came across a large group of youths who were playing music and seemed to be enjoying themselves but very quickly dispersed when the officers arrived! Unfortunately, not all youths were behaving themselves and the officers found a small bag of cannabis and the youth in question was dealt with accordingly. For the second part of the evening, the officers were joined by Sgt Mason & PC Cloake. The weather continued to keep the hotspots quiet until they arrived at the Bandstand. Again there was a number of youths present and there was a feint smell of alcohol and cannabis. The youths were searched by PC Cloake resulting in no further drugs found. Swift work by Sgt Mason who gathered up the youths, phoned their parents and were dropped home.
