Improvements to Police Services;
We are announcing an exciting opportunity to strengthen policing with an additional 200 police officers following the raise in local precept.
Chief Constable Giles York said “Over the last few years, we have dealt with significant challenges created by the financial constraints in which the force has found itself. This has meant difficult decisions have had to be made resulting in fewer people than we had before. Some areas of policing are stretched due to increasing demand and a change in the complexity of what we deal with.
“This change in our financial position has created an exciting opportunity to strengthen areas where it is needed most.”

National Rural Crime Survey;
Sussex Police are looking for people whom live, work, or visit rural communities to take part in the National Rural Crime Survey which provides the opportunity for you to give your views on matters relating to rural crime.
Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy BOURNE said “It’s vital that the voice of rural communities is heard by those who can make a difference – from the Police to Government. I urge residents to take part in the survey and help us build a clear picture of crim and anti-social behaviour in rural Sussex and to understand the impact it has where you live or work”.

When you need the police, do you know the different ways to contact them?
Sussex Police has created animated scenarios to reinforce how to contact the police.
In the two 90 second animations, members of the community share their experiences in choosing the most appropriate way to contact the police be that via their local prevention team, reporting online, calling 101 or 999. The animations include incidents of anti-social behaviour, drink driving, household burglary and distraction burglary. Click for link.
