Update on last weekend (Saturday) Operation Blitz activity

Officers from Eastbourne Prevention set off for their Op Blitz patrols over the Bank Holiday weekend to hit areas across the town which have recently received calls regarding ASB and youth ASB, and also areas where Officers have noticed on going / increased ASB or youth ASB.

Officers started along the seafront; sunshine and Bank Holidays often brings an increase of ASB into the area, and we see a rise in ASB related issues for a number of reasons; excessive alcohol consumption, recreational drug use etc.

The team started along the promenade from the pier, up to the Wish Tower. The beach was exceptionally busy owing to Bank Holiday makers and locals enjoying the hot temperatures.

Regrettably some taking it too far, officers had only just got out when they had to intervene with some of our local street community causing ASB issues along the promenade, officers seized alcohol from them on more than occasion on their walk along the front. One individual from the same group continued to cause issues and was subsequently arrested for disorderly behaviour, and went on to the assault the arresting officer.

Unfortunately Op Blitz was cut short this weekend owing to units being requested to assist with ‘Op Foxmere’, following a collision and isolated stabbing incident in Eastbourne, officers were tied up with scene guards, statements and road closures. (For more information please visit: https://news.sussex.police.uk/news/witnesses-sought-to-collision-between-motor-cycle-and-car-in-eastbourne-366486)

The Op Blitz phone was kept on with Officers to which no calls regarding ASB related issues being called in.
