Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Blitz on Saturday 28th of September; was conducted by PCSOs Honey and Hopgood, the team came on duty around 1730 and Blitz shift ended shortly before midnight.

Direct patrols were conducted throughout the night in the areas which have been highlighted as having had youth’s related disorder.

These areas include Gildredge Park, Langney, Hampden Park, Shinewater, Eastbourne Town, Sovereign View Carpark, Terminus Road, Eastbourne College surrounding area, and Old Town.

We are pleased to report that we received no calls via the blitz phone to these areas, and continued to patrol all areas regularly during the course of the wet weekend, likely owning to the poor weather.

Late evening on Saturday officers attended one ASB related incident in Polegate where Police received a report that a group of youths were hanging around in a communal doorway to a residents home.

When officers attended, the youths were very polite and compliant. Furthermore, they stated they were seeking shelter due to the heavy rain.

The youths were advised to seek shelter elsewhere due to the residents home being private in which they understood this and left the area.

Please be reminded that the Blitz phone is primarily for making reports about anti-social behaviour, outside of these time please report via the means above.
