Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Friday 22nd September, Blitz started a little later due to other commitments. We were informed that there was a party taking place in Etchingham Road, Eastbourne. Most of our time was spent around the Langney area specifically Etchingham Road to make sure no nuisance was caused from the aftermath of the party.

When Police arrived there were a small group of youths hanging around the rear of the village hall by the access road. This group was spoken to and were given words of advice the party was due to end around 10.30pm. We stayed in the area for a short while for some reassurance and we had no other issues.

We made our way to other hot spot areas including the Veritek building, Victoria gardens Bowls Club, Gildredge park, Grange Gardens and the town centre Mcdonalds. These areas were patrolled throughout the evening with nothing to report.

Op Blitz – Saturday 22nd September 18

We began our evening patrolling Eastbourne town centre, concentrating on Terminus Road and surrounding areas. There have been several reports recently of anti social behaviour increasing in this area.

We continued our patrols in other areas which have come to our attention, particularly in the Etchingham Road area. There have been reports of late, that young people have been congregating in this area, causing a nuisance and annoying local residents. This evening was quiet and there was nothing to report.

Other areas which have come to our attention include Victoria Gardens, Gildredge Park, Grange Gardens, Hampden Park and the Veritek building. We kept up high visibility patrols in these areas.

Due to the heavy rain this evening, the town was generally quiet and there were not many people out. We did not receive any calls on the blitz phone and are pleased to report that due to our continuous presence in these hot spot areas, this seems to be deterring incidents of anti social behaviour.
