Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

On Friday 23rd February Op Blitz started with a check of the ASDA Crumbles rear car park area, where we came across a small group of six male youths. There were no issues, and they did not hang around as they headed off towards South Harbour. All other Blitz Hotspots were very quiet.

Blitz continued with us taking on extra patrols following a serious incident in Holly Place earlier on in the day, Hi-Vis patrols of the area were completed for public reassurance, and there were no issues here.

We later had a report of youths in the B&Q car park on Marshall Road, throwing trollies around and damaging cars.  On attendance, they had moved on.  There was no visible damage to vehicles.  This group had earlier been involved in anti – social behaviour issues in Morrison’s opposite B&Q where Security staff had already asked them to leave that location.  Kings Church had also experienced that group but they moved on without issue. 

On Saturday 24th February, Op Blitz continued to focus on high visibility patrols around Holly Place in Hampden Park. We only broke away from our patrols to make our way to Sheffield Forrest for two missing people early on in the evening and again later in the evening when we had reports of a suspicious male in the gardens behind a block of flats in the Hampden Park area of Eastbourne. The weather was cold and dreary and meant a smooth evening followed.
