Chance to drop in and meet police in Hailsham

Residents and businesses in Hailsham are invited to a special drop in session on Saturday (October 26) where they can talk to the police about a range of safety and crime prevention issues.

The drop in session will be held at 4 Market Street (located next to the Town Council offices).

Police officers and PCSOs will be on hand from 11am to 1pm to give advice and support, including how to protect your property and increase vehicle security.

Bill Bentley, oversight councillor for Emergency Services at Hailsham Town Council, said: “This is an excellent opportunity for residents to meet local police officers and PCSOs and get some good crime prevention advice from the experts. We all have a responsibility to help prevent crime by making sure that we take precautions to protect ourselves and our property, so please come along and meet the officers. As well as valuable crime prevention advice, you will be given information about the police’s current priorities and tailored advice on safety and security to help address any aspects where you could be more vulnerable to crime.”

Neighbourhood Policing Team Sgt Howard Nevill said: “We really hope to help local residents reduce the risk of distress from crime or anti-social behaviour in the local community and to continue to keep Hailsham a safe place. Everyone is welcome, we are keen to hear your views and hope this and future drop-in sessions will prove to be popular.”

If you are unable to attend the surgery but wish to raise any concern you can call the Hailsham Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) directly on 101.
