Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

This weekend’s blitz the weather was wet and cold throughout the evenings, which may have had an impact on the amount of anti – social behaviour we came across.

Our first point of call was to the Old Town Bowls Club, whereby we have recently had reports of youths causing damage in the area. However, we are happy to report on this occasion that it appeared the weather had successfully deterred any issues.

We then moved on to Eastbourne Town Centre for a patrol around The Beacon checking in with the new Cineworld cinema who have had a few problems with youths.

We walked through the town centre and engaged well with some of the homeless community, checking on their wellbeing, who were in good spirits despite the wet weather.

This brought us onto patrolling the Shine Water area of Eastbourne, we made a visit to the new youth team in the area who are looking at taking younger kids and teenagers off the street to teach them about looking after themselves, but also having lots of fun! Their aim is to help improve the local area.

Once we had made a visit to the youth group we walked around Shinewater Park and the playground. Again, due to the weather there were very few people about. We did speak with a group of youths who were having an enjoyable time, however, the weather got the best of them and they weren’t out for long.

We then finished off the evening conducting a patrol around Hampden Park, however, there was nothing to report there this evening.

We had one call to the Blitz phone to Burlton Place, Eastbourne, which was a report of males being unruly in the area for a number of hours. We went to investigate but no one was found in the area at the time.
