Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Last weekend’s Op Blitz (Saturday 27th) was conducted by PCSO’s Honey, Furlong, Jake and Kerr.

Regrettably owing to an operation early afternoon in Eastbourne, 2 of the team were held back to finish duties late afternoon to early evening.

Patrols began in the town centre owing to recent youth ASB, nothing to report and officers made their way to the seafront for a Hiv-Vis patrol following last weeks ASB involving members of the street community causing issues.

Officers attended local public houses and other licensed premises on South Street and into Station Street following reports of stolen pedal cycles. Officers were tasked with obtaining witness statements and assisting the rest of the team recover stolen bikes.

The Op Blitz mobile phone was in use from 6pm although no calls were received the entire evening.

2 visits were made by officers following complaints of a 16th birthday party becoming rowdy in Old Town. On attendance a small group of youths were celebrating a birthday, officers spoke with the group and although there were no concerns during their visit advice regarding rowdy and noisy behaviour was given.

Officers later returned to this address before the end of their shift to check all was still in order, which they are pleased to report it was.

Patrols continued into the late evening with no calls being received on the Op Blitz mobile, and officers continuing to attend known ASB and youth ASB hotspot areas to offer reassurance to residents and late night businesses.
