Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Blitz on Friday 26th of July was carried out by officer from Eastbourne Prevention B section.

The evening started around 6pm with the drafting up the areas of concern from reports made the previous week, and anything they had noted from their weekly patrols around Eastbourne and surrounding areas.

The team headed out shortly after 6pm to the first stops of the evening, to areas highlighted as having had youths related ASB. The team spilt into pairs and headed to Gildridge Park, and Hampden Park with the aim of meeting up again later in the evening.

Both areas were given a thorough patrol by officers, with officers making regular stops to speak to residents out and about, speaking to them about local issues, and gathering intelligence to help form future patrols and build a picture of local issues and hotspot areas. Fortunately this evening neither areas had any issues and offers are pleased to report they had no call outs to the parks during the course of the evening.

Around 8pm a call came through on the Blitz Mobile of two reports from you of problem youths and a motorcycle being ridden in an anti-social manner in Princess Park. The team made their way over, unfortunately following an area search neither youths or motorcycles were seen, that said the team remained in the area for a short while in the event the issue popped up again, before making their way along the coast to tackle issues in the town centre.

The later part of the evening went without issue, with officers giving hi visibility patrols around targeted areas including, Langney, Shinewater, Seaside, Latimer Road, Terminus Road, Renfrew Court and Old Town. Whilst conducting the Blitz Patrols the team are pleased to report that they had no ASB related issues reported via the Blitz phone.

A final call came through on the Blitz phone to a report of youths causing a nuisance around the Veritek buildings, Edgeland Terrace, late in the evening, the team headed over and an area search was conducted but no further issues were witnessed by officers.

Please be reminded that the Blitz phone is primarily for making reports about anti-social behaviour, to report anything else please call via 101 (non-emergency), or 999 if appropriate, you can also email at: 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk (non-emergency) – Thank you.
