Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

On Friday, we periodically patrolled Fernley Park, Sand Ridge and New Road in the Ridgewood area of Uckfield. There was a few interactions, but no issues or reports of nuisance behaviour.  At around 6:30pm there was a report of a possible fight in Hailsham High Street. When the team arrived they stopped a group of youths, a few of which were causing a bit of a nuisance – riding their bikes on the pavement and going the wrong way up the one-way street. Details were taken and they were sent on their way after some words of advice.

Later in the evening, we received a call about youths drinking outside St. Henry’s Catholic School in Crowborough. Everything was in order when we arrived and there was no evidence that anyone had been drinking. Goldsmith’s Leisure Centre, Wolfe Recreation Ground and the Community Centre were also patrolled whilst we were in the area.

The final call we attended was to youths shoplifting from Tesco in Uckfield. After a negative search for the offenders, we remained in the town on foot patrol.

We had six calls to the Blitz phone on Saturday. Early on in the evening we attended Old Common Way in Uckfield after receiving a report of kids congregating. We also received complaints about a noisy party at The Diplocks, Hailsham; underage drinking on the school grounds a Beacon Academy in Crowborough; youths shouting and screaming in New Road, Uckfield and two females arguing and squaring up to each other in Jeffrey’s Walk, Uckfield. We responded to all the calls and everything was in order once we’d arrived.
