Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

We are pleased to say that both shifts on Operation Blitz came without issues. We attended all our hotspot areas for anti - social behaviour. 

We recieved a couple of calls to the Blitz phone. One of which was in relation to a male who was seen acting strangely in Princess Park hiding in the bushes. When we arrived at the location it was a false alarm with good intent from the person reporting. 

The second call was around young people riding a BMX around Maderia Way in the Harbour. However, when we arrived no group was present so we updated the individual that reported it to us that we had attended and the outcome of the call.

On the Saturday we did not receive any calls on the Blitz phone, so continued to patrol the hotspot areas. This included Sussex Downs College where no youths were found. We then attended the seafront which was busy with international students enjoying their time in our seaside town. We stayed in the area for a short while to ensure everyone was safe. 

After all areas were check and no issues reported we finished Operation Blitz for the weekend.
