Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Blitz last weekend was conducted by PCSO Honey and PCSO Hopgood.

The evening started with patrols around Shinewater including areas such as the park, and the Skate Park. Whilst there we engaged with a group of youths who were happy just sitting there chatting and enjoying the evening. These checks were conducted at 18:05hrs and later on in the evening at around 20:30hrs.

We then moved on to the Industrial Estate around Hampden Park where we have received information of youths causing damage and anti – social behaviour in the area. These checks were carried out around the times of 18:30hrs and later at 20:45hrs.

This led us to patrol the area around Broadwater Way, where again, these were carried out to deter and detect anti – social behaviour caused by youths in the area, these patrols were conducted at 18:35hrs and 20:50hrs.

The next stop was to the Old Town area of Eastbourne, this was due to information being received that youths have been smoking cannabis in the area. We showed a presence at around 18:50hrs and again later at 21:00hrs.

At around the hours of 19:00 and 21:10 we patrolled the town centre, including The Beacon and Terminus Road areas where all was well.

We are pleased to say that we received no reports on the Blitz phone or via 101 with regards to anti – social behaviour during the Operation Blitz shift.
