Operation blitz in Hailsham & Polegate

OPERATION Blitz is a police operation aimed at reducing antisocial behaviour, underage drinking and low level crime.

A dedicated team of six officers will be deployed to the Hailsham and Polegate area on Saturday, between 6pm and midnight, to interact with people who are seen to be causing a nuisance.

The officers will deal robustly with any young people drinking alcohol and anyone behaving in an antisocial manner.

Should you wish to contact the officers directly, you can use this dedicated mobile number to direct them to problem areas or to report antisocial behaviour whilst it’s happening.

The Op Blitz mobile number, for this date only, is: 07787 685753 (This number will change for each Operation)

Last weekend the team were deployed in the Uckfield and Crowborough area where they interacted with more than 100 youths.

With the exception of a small amount of alcohol being seized, all seemed well behaved and their interaction with police was positive.
