Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity
Blitz kicked off this week with a call to attend Tollgate Junior School where it was reported that a group of four boys had accessed the school grounds on their bikes. An area search of the school premises and the cycle path that runs alongside the school playing fields showed no-one present at that time.
Following on from this we patrolled the North Harbour and visited Macquarie Quay. On foot we checked the beach and harbour nearby as it often becomes a hot spot for youths gathering, however, the rain showers were keeping everyone off of the beach.
Heading to the Crumbles Retail Park, everything was quiet until we found a 15 year old girl at the back of one of the retail units who was barely conscious but thankfully still breathing. She had consumed what we believe to have been a large volume of alcohol and was with a group of other youths who were attempting to contact one of her family members. Whilst ensuring she remained conscious and safe, we informed the girl’s parents of the incident and called for an ambulance to attend, paramedics were quick to respond and took over her care. The rest of the evening was fortunately much quieter and there were no calls received on the blitz phone.
On Saturday 30th April, due to an Operation in Crowborough and other commitments the Blitz patrols were not carried out on Saturday, however officers were available to respond to calls both reported on the 999/101 numbers and via the Operation Blitz phone.
The only report of anti-social behaviour was early in the evening, where a group of youths in Hampden Park were allegedly being abusive to a family at the play park. The youths were located at the skate park where strong words of advice were given, and all engaged well. There were no calls on the Blitz phone this evening either, and thus Blitz was concluded.
