Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Blitz on Friday 23rd of August.

Weekend patrols were conducted across Eastbourne by PCSOs Honey and Hopgood, and started around 6pm, with the team heading out to local known hotspots, and those areas reported to them throughout the week.

Newly listed areas which have been highlighted as having had youth related disorder included; Gildredge Park which owing to the weather and half term has seen an increase in park users and groups playing in the park, unfortunately not everyone playing the same and a few groups have already been given notice to not frequent to park as a result of their disruptive behaviour to others who are enjoying their time out over the half term.

Other areas of note this weekend included, Langney, where the team headed out on foot and by van to give presence to the streets affected by youth related ASB. A number of residents were spoken to and concerns were raised about ongoing issues in the area, as a result future patrols will be given consideration to the area as a priority. Residents were pleased to see the team out and about and were given the Blitz mobile number in the event anything was witnessed during the team’s weekend patrols. We are pleased to report that no calls were received to the Langney area.

Hampden Park and Shinewater, both areas of known ASB, both general ASB and youth related ASB were given attention this evening following reports from concerned parents during the week of older groups of teens causing issues in the park and communal ground areas. Fortunately this evening no issues were noted as the team walked through the areas, again residents were given contact details for the blitz team should they witness anything ASB related over the weekend.

Patrols continued into the late evening, with Eastbourne town becoming very busy owing to the long weekend and people out enjoying themselves. Unfortunately one or two enjoying themselves too much and a couple of arrests for drunk and disorderly were made over the weekend.


Sovereign View Carpark, Eastbourne College and Old Town were all patrolled during the evening; first thing and then again before officers came off duty. These are areas of known ASB related issues, however this evening no reports of ASB or youth related ASB were reported.

As the team began to wind down their patrols for the evening, a call came in to assist several high-risk missing people in Eastbourne town centre, fortunately both were found safe and well, and the team gave the town centre once last going over before heading back to base; not before the team touched base with late night food restaurants and pubs to ensure all was in order.

Please be reminded that the Blitz phone is primarily for making reports about anti-social behaviour. Any other reports will need to go via 101, 999 if appropriate or via email at: 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk
