News and appeals

This year’s Eastbourne 999 was a roaring success bringing large crowds across the weekend (6 and 7 July 2019)

The 999 event at Eastbourne is a fantastic opportunity to allow Sussex Police and other partners to provide up to date and relevant information for the community. This year was no different. Alongside giving prevention advice on areas such as how to protect your homes and your belongings, road safety and the dangers of using illegal substances, we wanted our focus to be on preventing knife crime.

Inspector Howard Nevill said “This event meant we were able to provide information, to those present, so that they are aware of our shared concerns around knife crime and what we are looking to do.  We always welcome information and intelligence, in respect of those in carrying knives, so that we can intervene, at the earliest chance and therefore minimise the impact on others.  If you have any information please call 101 or 999 if it is an emergency or active crime or you can fill out the information on our website at www.sussex.police.uk or via crime stoppers on 0800555111 or on their website www.crimestoppers-uk.org both anonymously”

In addition to giving crime prevention advice we also had a ‘criminal line up’ where children and adults alike could dress up to get there photos taken, alongside games and activities for children to learn about how the police can be there to help them.

The crowds also saw lots of demonstrations from various emergency services. East Sussex Fire and Rescue were on hand to demonstrate the dangers of putting water on hot oil cooking fires, as well as working alongside the South Coast Ambulance to show how they rescue someone trapped in a crashed car.

Furthermore, demonstrations included a public order display from British Transport Police, CPR demonstrations and cliff rescue exercises from the Coastguard.
We would like to say a big thank you for everyone that attended the event and we hope that you enjoyed it just as much as we did!
