Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Friday night’s Operation Blitz patrols were conducted by Sgt Williams together with PCSO’s Gell, Slow, Catton and Crouch. The evening started off fairly quiet with no activity at the usual hot spot locations. We assisted the response teams by answering a couple of 999 calls where we located a female whom had been screaming for help. She was located safe and well at home and has been referred to adult social care for a follow up visit. We then attended a dropped 999 call and established the elderly male caller was fine. We were then deployed to Hastings to assist with the double shooting incident where we helped in evacuating residents from their homes to a place of safety away from the risk. The arrested male for this incident was brought back to Eastbourne cell block by Sgt Williams. No calls were received or missed to the Operation Blitz phone.


On Saturday 17th March, most of the Prevention Team were deployed back to Hastings to assist in house to house enquiries for the incident the previous night. Sgt Williams together with PCSO’s Gell and Cotterill conducted the Operation Blitz patrols in Eastbourne. Thankfully the Arctic conditions assisted with keeping the streets quiet from anti-social behaviour and no problems were encountered in the residential areas of Eastbourne. No calls were received or missed to the Operation Blitz phone. We assisted staff at Tesco’s Express in the town centre with removing a drunk abusive customer. Despite numerous attempts to encourage him to leave the area he ended up being arrested for being drunk and of disorderly behaviour.
