Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Operation Blitz was conducted last weekend by PCSO Cotterill and PCSO Brian Davis.
The weather this weekend had heavy rain showers and cold temperatures.

The first point of call for the PCSO’s was to attend Eastbourne Town Centre including checking in with Cineworld cinema due to recent issues over the summer with youths.

We paid close attention in an attempt to keep an eye on any persons who are believed to be involved in anti – social behaviour and criminal activity in the town.

However, fortunately due to the weather, most youths were inside staying out of the wet and brisk conditions.

The shift was extremely busy with officers being called to a large number of incidents unrelated to Blitz including attending a mental health incident and a road traffic collision amongst others.

There were no calls to the Blitz phone, however, we did receive one call over the radio which related to around twenty youths on Warf Road, smashing bottles, smoking and drinking. We arrived on scene and completed an area search, however, when we arrived no one was to be seen and there was nothing to report.

In addition we checked areas including Beachy Head and Willingdon.
