Update on last weekend's Operation Blitz activity

Saturday 2nd February 2019

Lewes Patrol.

Saturday night’s Operation Blitz was patrolled by PCSO Chris Marchant, PCSO Jules Nicholson and PC Carolyn Ross.

This started around 1900 hours in the Lewes town centre area, with officers starting at Friars walk and making their way around to Cliffe High Street and the surrounding areas. Nothing to report in the town area so officers made their way to Malling; where on speaking to a security guard, officers took statements and obtained CCTV in relation an assault that had happened previously that day.
Officers then moved on towards the Pells area, this area has previously suffered from ASB and vehicle damage caused by youths using a cut through/footpath that leads to and from the Landport Estate. Residents have been spoken to on previous occasions, but this evening there were no youths present and all was in order.
The Blitz team made their way from Lewes to Newick around 1945 and attended the George V Playing fields and skate park. There has, over the past few weeks, been calls regarding the throwing of fireworks and large groups of youth congregating. No youths this evening but nice to speak to residents and members of the Social Club who popped out to say hello.
Around 2000 the team returned to Lewes, patrolling the area around Aqua and Fuego Lounge, a number of youths seen hanging in the vicinity causing issues, youths moved themselves on but we later caught up with them again on Cliffe Bridge where stern words of advice were given, with their actions filmed on body worn video should any further ASB be spotted in the evening. The same group were spotted later towards the rear of the Harvey’s Brewery heading back along the river in the direction of Tesco, again they were approached with body worn video to which they took umbrage towards and reluctantly scuttled off into the night.
The latter part of the evening saw little activity in Lewes, officers made their way to Newhaven and took the opportunity to incorporate some nigh time bail checks in the area, and all was in order.
Officers ended their Blitz shift around 0030 after revisiting all areas for one last check.
Thank you for signing up to ASB In The Know alerts, please continue to report any ASB issues in your local area to us on 101, or by emailing 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk.
Remember in an emergency, or if you believe an offence is about to happen, always call 999.
