Operation Blitz – Tackling ASB in your towns and villages

Operation Blitz is a designated ASB patrol, and an on-going drive, each Friday and Saturday night between 4pm-10pm (during the Spring months, and in addition to weekly patrols across the district), in which officers from the Lewes district Prevention team take to the streets in areas which have seen an increase in ASB crimes, or youth related ASB, along with areas which have come to attention from your reports over the week.

Designated ASB patrols continue during the Covid-19 pandemic.

From 4pm-10pm, you can call officers on a designated phone number should you witness or become victim of any ASB, or youth related ASB. The contact number for the Lewes areas (which covers all rural towns north of Lewes, right down through the coast including Peacehaven, Newhaven and Seaford) is: 07989 188960.

Outside of these times, please continue to report ASB on 101, or report online on the newly designed ASB reporting form here

Whilst police continue to direct patrols to known areas of ASB to prevent further occurrences; no one knows your neighbourhood quite like you do – ASB in local districts will not be tolerated, if you have any concerns within your local community around ASB, please report it by either calling 101, or visiting our website www.sussex.police.uk – alternatively you can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, or online at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.

Your reports help to form designated patrols across the district, and assist your local Prevention team in intervening early, to help prevent ASB and crime and disorder from occurring across your towns and villages.

Remember if an offence is occurring, or there is an immediate danger to you or those around you, always call 999.
