What you said: Anti-social behaviour by younger children on the estate

Issue raised on 18 Nov 2010

What we did: PCSO Holland maintains a regular patrol in the area. He is working closely with the neighbourhood constables to deal with any issues that occur. Residents have raised concerns over ball games and other activities that are taking place in the area and this is the primary focus of the neighbourhood teams efforts. What Happened? PCSO Holland is working closely with the Housing Associations to visit residents who have been effected by these issues, or have been identified as having children involved in the anti-social behaviour. This work is ongoing and hopefully success will be seen in time.

Dangerous cycling both on the estate and also on Pevensey Bay Road

Issue raised on 18 Nov 2010

What you said: You raised the issue of cyclists not behaving properly on the pavements and roads around the area. This in turn causes problems for pedestrians, especially those with young children and the elderly. What we did: Local officers stop and speak with everyone who are acting inappropriately on cycles. This is along side publicity regarding road safety and cycle safety. With the darker evenings it is very important that we try to prevent incidents and accidents happening. This work continues.

Thefts from Garden Sheds

Eastbourne Police are investigating a number of incidents across Kings Park and Kingsmere where several garden sheds have been broken into. Garden equipment has been targeted with mowers and tools being taken. The majority of these offences have occurred overnight.

Neighbourhood Officer for Kings Park & Kingsmere, PC Ed Faulkner said, “We have increased our patrols and are targeting our resources within the area to prevent any further offences and identify those responsible. In the meantime I encourage all house holders to check the security of sheds and outbuildings and make sure that they are secured with decent locks. We have a number of leaflets available to help advise how to make buildings more secure. Jan Newens, Chair of Neighbourhood Watch has a small supply of shed alarms should anyone wish to make use of them. These are available through local Officers and at the Police Station.

We are also concentrating on outlets for stolen goods and I urge anyone with information about who may be responsible for these offences to contact me or call crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.”

Sgt Ed Ripley, who is responsible for Neighbourhood policing in Kings Park & Kingsmere, “We are determined to catch the people responsible for this spate of thefts but rely on the community to help us by reporting anything suspicious straight away by dialling 999. Overall crime in Eastbourne has again fallen by 8% compared to the previous 12 month period which means there are 656 fewer victims across the town. We intend to continue this reduction in crime.”
