Friday night’s Operation Blitz was very quiet and started off at Friars Walk in Lewes. The officers patrolled this area, starting at 6:10pm, and there were no issues. They moved over to Winterbourne Hollow in Lewes at 6:50pm, where the officers came across a group of youths. There was a strong smell of cannabis and the youths admitted having smoked it. They were subsequently stop checked and three cannabis grinder were seized. From here, the officers attended the Linklater Building in Lewes at 7:30pm but all was in order. At 8:00pm, the officers visited the Landport Estate in Lewes where they came across a group of youths. They engaged positively and politely with the officers and were not causing any issues. Following this, they travelled over to Newhaven and patrolled the Dacre Road Car Park at 8:30pm. They came across some youths on the top level, however they were not causing any problems. Claremont Car Park, The Crouch and The Salts in Seaford, however no youths were present.


Saturday night’s Operation Blitz was even quieter than Friday and started off at Claremont Road in Seaford. There have been reports of youths gathering in the underground car park recently but the area was checked at 8:45pm and all was in order. The officers returned there at 10:00pm for a second visit, which again was all in order. From here, the officer moved over to West Beach Car Park and Dacre Road Car Park in Newhaven at 7:00pm. Everything was all in order but the officer re-attended the Dacre Road Car Park for a second visit at 9:15pm.
