Update on last weekend (Friday) Operation Blitz activity

Officers from Eastbourne Prevention headed out over the Bank Holiday weekend to target areas across the town which have recently been subject to ASB and youth ASB.

The team deployed to areas across Eastbourne, including the seafront, Gildredge Park and Princes park, areas which have recently received calls regarding ASB and youth ASB, and also areas where Officers have noticed on going / increased ASB or youth ASB.

Officers started along the seafront; owing to the market stalls along the front there was an increase in groups congregating along the front; but none of concern and officers focussed their patrols on targeting excessive alcohol consumption and recreational drug use which the seafront often falls victim to over bank holidays.

Other than some of our local street community causing ASB issues along the promenade, officers were pleased to report no issues on their seafront patrol.

Following an increase in language students visiting the town over their half terms, we have noticed an increase in youth related ASB around park areas, officers made their way to these locations and foot patrols were conducted to offer reassurance to students and also act as a deterrent to our problem youths who often congregate in the park areas.

Other than a few dog walkers, all was in order, and officers spoke with residents and gave them the Op Blitz contact number should they witness anything during the course of the evening.

During the evening, officers dropped in on local late night businesses, none of who had anything to report, reassurance visits were conducted and officer contact details given; and Officers were pleased to report that no issues we reported during their Op Blitz patrols during the evening, also the Op Blitz mobile received no calls.
