Update on last weekend’s Operation Blitz activity The team were out last weekend patrolling locations in Wealden where anti-social behaviour has recently been reported. We were called to a group of drunk youths in Vicarage Field, Hailsham, around 7pm on Friday evening. On arrival, there was lots of shouting and swearing, and the area was littered with empty beer bottles. It appeared that an 18 year old male had been assaulted in the church yard, but refused to give us any details and left the area. Our main concern was a group of younger teenagers, 14/15 year olds, who were hanging around with the older group. We are trying to identify these individuals, but would encourage anyone with teenage kids to make sure they know where they are and what they’re up to on a Friday and Saturday night. Late Friday evening the team got called to a car crash in Crowborough, which we were committed with for a couple of hours. The team on Saturday didn’t receive any calls on the Blitz mobile and spent the evening patrolling hotspot areas. Our only interactions were with a polite group of youngsters in Heathfield, who weren’t causing any issues.
