Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Friday’s Op Blitz was a full team effort by A section.

Led by PS Wells, all staff were loaded into the police carrier and driven to hotspot locations where they were dropped off to conduct foot patrols. Other members of the team were PC’s Franklin-Lester and Elliott along with PCSO’s Cotterill and Slow.

The evening started with units being deployed to assist in locating a high risk missing person in the Hampton Park area, thankfully they were located relatively quickly allowing units to re-deploy to Blitz patrols. 

Whilst on patrols there was an early arrest of one male who was wanted on warrant having failed to appear at court who had been outstanding for over 2 years.

Having returned to the patrols again Morrison’s as well as the Marshal Road industrial estate were visited, there were no youths present at either of these locations with the car parks also being clear of any nuisance vehicles.

Whilst on route to Mallard Close the team were again diverted to assist staff at Eastbourne Railway Station with a male who was trespassing on the railway line. This male was successfully and safely removed with the help of BTP officers who dealt with him for believed mental health issues. 

Returning to our patrols once again areas visited included Victoria Drive, Beatty Road, The Crumbles, Shinewater, Langney and The Beacon all of which have been subject of previous reports relating to  anti-social behaviour. All areas were again very quiet with no issues being reported and no groups of youths seen.

There were no calls received on the Blitz phone during the course of the evening. There was however, one incident that was called in to youths playing football in Beachy Avenue. Units  attended, spoke with them and offered words of advice.
