Update on last weekend’s Operation Blitz activity
Friday was a busy shift for the team. 14 calls were made direct to the Blitz officers, mostly reporting nuisance behaviour in and around Fernley Park in Uckfield. This appeared to be down to some drunk youths which had been evicted from a house party in Teelings Drive. Officers confiscated alcohol from a number of youths and took two boys home to parents. Unfortunately they had already caused issues for a number of residents on the estate.
Officers were also called regarding some nuisance motorbikes in Farmingham Road, Crowborough, but they had disappeared before the team arrived.
On the Saturday night, the team were tasked to visit the home addresses of the youths that came to our attention on the previous evening, in Fernley Park. Suitable advice was given in front of their parents and one lad was issued with an Acceptable Behaviour Contract at the Police Station. On the whole, it was a much quieter evening with only one call to the Blitz phone, which was to advise us of some nosy youths at the play park in New Road, Ridgewood.
