Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

PCSO Nicholson and PC Ross were on Operation Blitz this weekend.

We began our patrols in Peacehaven where we first attended the Meridian Centre where all was in order, however, we did have to give words of advice to a small group in the park by the entrance due to social distancing.

We then headed over to the Big Park where we saw members of the public walking their dogs and did not have any issues.

Newhaven was next on our list and a visit to the skate park in Fort Road, there was only about four young people there and we engaged and gave advice, West Quay and West Beach were included and all very peaceful at both locations.

We were then called by our control room to attend an address in Newhaven due to reports of BBQ being held there, on arrival government guideline advice was given to the residents.
OP Blitz then headed North to Lewes, we received a call on the OP Blitz phone saying there was a social gathering in one of the properties on the Landport Estate, PC Ross spoke with the residents and suitable advice was given.

We moved on to Plumpton where it was reported that a group were swimming in a nearby lake but unfortunately we did not manage to catch up with the group, plus the temperature had lowered and we assumed they must have gone on their way. While up in the rural area we were called to deal with another BBQ in Newhaven, when we arrived back on the coast we attended and the guests left.

We then called in to Saxon House in Newhaven to have our break. While having our break we were called to attend an address in Seaford which was reported to be having numerous guests attend, we spoke with the residents and it was in fact a large family living there, we carried on our patrols around Seaford. We did not see any large groups of young people throughout our patrols. So thank you for staying at home.
