The Sussex Local Policing Model - 10th November 2017

Since 2015 we have embarked on a transformational change programme.  We have looked at every element of our local policing service provision, determining how we can manage more demand with fewer people and meet new and emerging threats facing our communities.


Our new local policing model holds on to areas of policing which are much valued and has transformed others to address the changing nature of crime and evolution of new crime types and threats - for example CSE and terrorism.


In the last five years we have seen reductions in reports of ASB, whilst reports of sexual offences, domestic abuse and cybercrimes have increased – in many cases because people have more confidence to report.


Today we are launching the final element of our local policing model – the introduction of new Prevention Teams. Formerly known as Neighbourhood Policing Teams, Prevention officers and staff are now working smarter to prevent crime from happening and actively targeting local problems.  


These teams of skilled PCSOs, police officers and staff are tackling local issues, patrolling where they can make a difference and working closely with you, our partners, to provide better solutions and improved outcomes.


Prevention Teams:


  • are accessible.

  • aim to prevent crime and anti-social b_ehaviour by working with partners and targeting their patrols in areas where they can make a difference.

  • include PCSOs with enhanced skills, police officers and staff, including specialists working with young people in schools and colleges.

  • identify the best ways to solve problems, tackle repeat issues and reduce crime.

  • cover every neighbourhood in Sussex and can be contacted directly.


Response Teams:


  • are there when needed in an emergency, available 24/7.

  • provide proactive intervention in vulnerable areas.

  • also attend non-emergency calls where a policing presence is needed.


Investigations Teams:


  • investigate professionally and effectively.

  • proactively pursue and manage offenders, using the latest technology and digital evidence techniques to catch criminals.

  • support communities and victims, with each crime type investigated and each case considered individually according to the threat and harm caused.

  • through the Investigation and Resolution Centre resolve less serious incidents, which do not require a face to face visit, over the phone.


The launch of our local policing model and vision for future policing shows our commitment to maintain the safest communities in Sussex.


Local policing is at the heart of everything we do and will continue to be the foundation of the service we provide to keep people safe and feeling safe.


I look forward to talking to you in more detail about the changes and how our new, resilient model will enable our teams to respond flexibly to new and emerging demands on our service. In the meantime, from 12 noon today, you can visit our website to find out more.

Employment Fraud Alert - 14th November 2017

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) has identified a number of reports where job seekers are being targeted by fraudsters trying to obtain personal and banking details from them, or requesting money to secure accommodation.


Individuals registering with job seeking websites or searching for jobs on The Student Room website are being contacted by bogus recruitment companies/businesses asking them to complete application and interview forms which request personal details and banking details, as well as copies of identity documents.


In some instances the applicant is invited along for interview, either in person or over the phone, to make the process look as legitimate as possible. This is impacting on students and graduates looking for work both in the UK and overseas. Some job seekers, as well as divulging personal details, have paid money to the fraudsters in order to secure a bogus rental property alongside the job offer.


How to protect yourself:


  • Check emails and documents from the recruiter for poor spelling and grammar – this is often a sign that fraudsters are at work.

  • If visa fees are mentioned, ask the embassy representing the country where you believe you will be working how to obtain a visa and how much it costs. Check that the answers the potential employer or recruiter gave you are the same – if they’re not, it may be a sign of fraud.

  • Carry out thorough research to confirm that the organisation offering you the job actually exists. If it does exist, contact the organisation directly using contact details obtained through your own research or their website to confirm the job offer is genuine.


What to do if you’re a victim:


  • If you think your bank details have been compromised or if you believe you have been defrauded contact your bank immediately.

  • Stop all communication with the ‘agency’ but make a note of their details and report it to Action Fraud.

  • Warn the operators of the job website you used that their site is being used by fraudsters.

  • If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it to Action Fraud by visiting or by calling 0300 123 2040.

Support For Policing In Sussex - 27th November 2017

Will you pay more to support policing in Sussex?


Neighbourhood Watch colleagues, residents, their families and friends can now take part in the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner’s consultation for the 2018/19 Police Precept. This proposes to increase the police element of council tax to sustain policing in Sussex.


The Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner, Katy Bourne, has launched a county-wide consultation to ask the public if they would be prepared to pay more for policing in Sussex. Can you please spare a few moments to complete a very short survey?


The PCC has opened an online survey via her website to seek residents’ views on supporting policing in the county. She explains: “I know that residents support Sussex Police in preparing for threats like terrorism and cybercrime, but I’m also aware that issues closer to home, such as anti-social behaviour, are affecting local people.”


“In previous years, the Chief Constable has asked for my help to raise more funds to invest in specific areas of policing, including public protection, community investigation and armed response. Thanks to the money you’ve already contributed through your council tax, Sussex Police has been able to build its capacity and capabilities in these areas, and others, to deliver a more effective and efficient service to the public. Now we need your help to sustain this service.”


Last year Mrs Bourne carried out her biggest consultation to date: almost 4,500 people responded with nearly 80% supporting an increase in the police precept part of their council tax bill.


Sussex Police has already saved £76m since 2010, and the Chief Constable’s Local Policing Plan is working towards delivering further savings over the next four years.


“The Chief Constable and I are continuing to work together to drive further reform, and substantial progress has already been made through collaboration with local and regional partners and through investment in mobile technology,” added Mrs Bourne.


“I want to help Sussex Police explore and identify all opportunities for investment. That is why I have carried out a review of the amount of money Sussex Police holds in its reserves and released £15m to reduce the impact of reductions in police officer numbers. I’ve done this because I recognise the scale of the impact that these changes are having on the police and the public, and I remain committed to investing in local policing.


“I am also seeking further sources of external funding, including contributions from new building developments that lead to increased demand on local services. I – and other Police & Crime Commissioners – continue to negotiate with the Government for more funding for policing, as well as asking for the removal of the current cap on the police precept.”


You can find a link to the online survey, as well as further information, at We know that some people are, understandably, hesitant to click on links sent by E-mail. If you feel uncomfortable about following this link you can also search online for the PCC’s website, where you will find the link to the survey clearly displayed on the home page, and also there is a short video explaining why the increase is being proposed.


Do you support this proposal? Please give your views by taking part in this short survey by 5th January 2017. We would encourage you to forward this message to all your neighbours and friends in Sussex.

Fake Government Grants Fraud Alert - 18th December 2017

Individuals and businesses are being warned to watch out for cold calls and online contact from fraudsters who are offering victims the opportunity to apply for Government grants for an advance fee.


To make the grants look legitimate fraudsters have set up bogus companies and convincing looking websites that claim to be operating on behalf of the UK Government.


Fraudsters cold call businesses and individuals offering the grant and if they’re interested direct them to fill out an online application form with their personal information.


Once the fraudsters have that information they’ll contact back victims and congratulate them on being accepted onto the grant programme.  


Pre-paid credit cards


Applicants are then asked to provide identification and are instructed to get a pre-paid credit card to deposit their own contribution to the fake Government grant scheme. Fraudsters will then contact victims on the phone or are emailed and asked for the details of their pre-paid credit card and copies of statements to in order for them to add the grant funds.


Of course the grant funds are never given by the fraudsters and the money that’s been loaded by the victim onto the card is stolen.


If you receive one of these calls, hang up immediately and report it to us. We’ve already taken down one website fraudsters have been using to commit this fraud and are working with Companies House to combat this issue.


How to protect yourself:


Be wary of unsolicited callers implying that you can apply for grants. You should never have to pay to receive a government grant, and they definitely won’t instruct you to obtain a pre-paid credit card. The government should have all the information they need if a genuine grant application was submitted, therefore any requests for personal or banking information either over the phone or online should be refused.


What to do if you’re a victim:


  • If you think your bank or personal details have been compromised or if you believe you have been defrauded contact your bank immediately.

  • Stop all communication with the ‘agency’ but make a note of their details and report it to Action Fraud.

  • If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it to Action Fraud by visiting or by calling 0300 123 2040.


The information contained within this alert is based on information from gathered by the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB).  The purpose of this alert is to increase awareness of this type of fraud.

Flight Ticket Fraud Alert - 8th February 2018

Fraudsters are attempting to entice victims who are looking for cheap flights abroad.


Victims have reported booking tickets via websites or a “popular” ticket broker, only to discover that after payment via bank transfer or electronic wire transfer, the tickets/booking references received are counterfeit. In some cases, all communications between the company or broker and the victim have been severed.


Fraudsters are targeting individuals who are seeking to travel to African nations and the Middle East, particularly those wishing to travel in time for popular public and religious holidays.


Prevention Advice:


  • Pay safe: Be cautious if you're asked to pay directly into a private individual’s bank account. Paying by direct bank transfer is like paying by cash – the money is very difficult to trace and is not refundable. Wherever possible, pay by credit card or a debit card.

  • Conduct research on any company you’re considering purchasing tickets from; for example, are there any negative reviews or forum posts by previous customers online? Don’t just rely on one review - do a thorough online search to check the company’s credentials.

  • Check any company website thoroughly; does it look professional? Are there any spelling mistakes or irregularities? There should be a valid landline phone number and a full postal address so that the company can be contacted. Avoid using the site if there is only a PO Box address and mobile phone number, as it could be difficult to get in touch after you buy tickets. PO Box addresses and mobile phone numbers are easy to change and difficult to trace.

  • Be aware that purchasing tickets from a third party, particularly when initial contact has been made via a social media platform can be incredibly risky.

  • If tickets to your intended destination appear cheaper than any other vendor, always consider this; if it looks too good to be true, it probably is!

  • Look for the logo: Check whether the company is a member of a recognised trade body such as ABTA or ATOL. You can verify membership of ABTA online, at

  • If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040, or visiting

Drugs seized and two arrested by police in Horsham


Shortly before 4pm on Tuesday (20 February) police prevention enforcement officers stopped and searched a white Mercedes-Benz A200 car within the Denne Road car park, Horsham.


The driver, a 21-year-old man from Horsham, was arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis, a Class B drug, with intent to supply, taking a motor vehicle without consent, not having insurance and possession of an offensive weapon (a hammer).


A subsequent search of a flat in London Road, Horsham, and a BMW car in the same road disclosed more cannabis, together with several hundreds of pounds cash.


A 22-year-old woman at the address was arrested on suspicion of possessing cannabis with intent to supply.


Both suspects have been released under investigation while enquiries continue.


A further search carried out at an address in Crawley Road, Horsham, proved inconclusive.


Inspector Sarah Leadbeatter, of Horsham police, said: "The action being taken to tackle illegal drugs activity should leave no one in any doubt that such crimes will not be tolerated. We will continue to make every effort to detect and disrupt drug abuse in our community, and to bring those responsible before the courts."


CCTV image of suspected burglar in Pulborough


Police have released a CCTV image (Please click on link to view)  of a suspected burglar who tried to break into a house in Pulborough.


Officers were called to a property in Rectory Lane at 1.10pm on Friday 2 February and found a window at the rear had been smashed but the would-be intruder had fled after being disturbed by the alarm.


The suspect who was captured on CCTV is a white man, of slim build and aged between 18 and 35. He was wearing a blue raincoat with a hooded peak cap, dark coloured trousers and brown shoes with light brown laces.


PC Glyn Knight said: "We are hoping someone will recognise this man as it is quite a good quality CCTV image. If you know who it is please let us know."


If you have any information contact police online or ring 101 quoting serial 565 of 02/02.


Closure order for Horsham property


A property in Horsham, associated with incidents of anti-social behaviour and drugs, has been given a partial closure order.

Police became aware of anti-social behaviour and criminal activities, including drug taking, being conducted in the property.


Police Constable Adam Ferries said: “This was a successful joint partnership agency collaboration after we received concerns from local residents.


“Sussex Police are committed to tackling anti-social behaviour and drug-related violence in all forms and this will address the concerns we received.

Police are investigating an attack on a 25-year-old man who was walking home along East Street in Horsham town centre at about 1.05am on Sunday (18 February)


At the junction with Park Way, outside the Cycle Room cycle shop, he was subjected to what appears to be an unprovoked attack by three men who were all in light coloured hooded tops or jackets.


The victim sustained serious injuries including three stab wounds, two to his body and one to an arm, and was taken to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton where he underwent surgery and is in a serious but not life threatening condition.  


Nothing was stolen.


Detective Constable Sue MacCallum-Stewart said; "The victim is fortunate that the injuries were not even more serious, and the motive for this vicious attack is not known at present.

Police are investigating an attack on a 17-year-old boy who was walking home along Rushams Road, Horsham, at about 1am on Sunday (18 February).


At the junction with Victory Road he was approached by a white male wearing a dark, possibly green, tracksuit and a dark sleeveless puffa jacket with hood up.

The suspect then made off up Victory Road.


The boy was treated for his wounds at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton and was discharged later that morning.

UK Power Networks Information on Weather and the Electricity Network

4th March 2018

You may be aware that the current cold spell of icy winds and snow may bring ‘freezing rain’. Freezing rain is a very rare weather phenomenon and occurs when very cold rain freezes immediately on landing.  


Our electricity network is built to be resilient but extreme weather can damage overhead power lines, resulting in some customers losing their electricity supply. Where this happens we work to restore power as quickly and safely as possible, and we have organised for additional staff in our contact centre and more engineers on the ground to be available to help customers whose electricity supply might be affected by the cold weather.


You will be able to find regular updates on our website and social media @UKPowerNetworks throughout this period.


Anyone experiencing a power cut should:


  • Call 105 to report power cuts and damage to the electricity network, or 0800 3163 105 (from a corded phone or mobile phone if you have no power)

  • Visit for the latest updates

  • Visit and type in their postcode to view our live power cut map

  • Tweet @ukpowernetworks to report a power cuts or to receive updates.


We advise people to stay clear of power lines and report damaged power lines immediately by calling 105 free from either a landline or a mobile phone. If they see electricity lines that are down or causing significant risk to the public they should call 999.


We provide extra help to customers on our Priority Service Register during a power cut.  Households with older or disabled people, those with children under five, or where someone uses medical or mobility equipment that requires electricity as well as other reasons can join the register.  You can find out more information about our Priority Service on our website:

False Telephone Preference Service Calls

17th March 2018

Fraudsters are cold-calling victims, falsely stating that they are calling from one of the well-known UK telecommunication service providers. They call victims claiming to provide a ‘Telephone Preference Service’ - an enhanced call-barring service, which includes barring international call centres.


The fraudsters ask victims to confirm/provide their bank account details, informing them that there is a one-off charge for the service. Victims instead see monthly debits deducted from their accounts, which they have not authorised. The fraudsters often target elderly victims.


In all instances, direct debits are set up without following proper procedure. The victim is not sent written confirmation of the direct debit instruction, which is supposed to be sent within three days.


On occasions when victims attempted to call back, the telephone number provided by the fraudster was either unable to be reached or the victim’s direct debit cancellation request was refused.


During 2017, there were 493 Action Fraud Reports relating to this fraud.


Protect yourself:


  • There is only one Telephone Preference Service (TPS). The TPS is the only official UK 'do-not-call' register for opting out of live telesales calls. It is FREE to sign-up to the register. TPS never charge for registration. You can register for this service at

  • You will receive postal confirmation of genuine direct debits. If you notice unauthorised payments leaving your account, you should contact your bank promptly.

  • Always be wary of providing personal information, or confirming that personal information the caller already claims to hold is correct. Always be certain that you know who you talking to. If in doubt hang up immediately.


If you have been affected by this, or any other type of fraud, report it to Action Fraud by visiting or by calling 0300 123 2040.

Police News and Appeals - 17th March 2018

Prolific Horsham offender brought before the courts


Determined officers in Horsham have shown their resilience in bringing a prolific criminal to justice.


Darion Bates, 49, of South Holmes Road, Horsham, pleaded guilty to six separate offences of vehicle interference, damaging a car in an attempt to steal the contents, throughout February in the town.


Bates was sentenced at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on Friday 2 March and given a six month community order with curfew conditions.


Prevention Inspector Sarah Leadbeatter said: “Bates has been a prolific offender for vehicle crime in Horsham for a while and we have been determined to catch him. He has now been convicted for 20 separate offences since October 2017.


“Our diligent and hard work behind the scenes enabled us to hand Bates over to the courts to be brought to justice for his behaviour.


“Local officers have worked incredibly hard to catch and convict Bates and we will continue to ensure vehicle crime remains a priority and those persons responsible are dealt with robustly.”


Op Traverse calls on anglers to be 'eyes and ears' to tackle rural crime


Sussex anglers are being encouraged to become 'eyes and ears' for tackling wildlife crime across the county.


The Environment Agency, CEFAS (Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science) and the Angling Trust have joined forces with the National Wildlife Crime Unit (NWCU) and police forces across the country to promote Operation Traverse, highlighting the many problems with criminals operating in rural communities.


Sussex Police announced its involvement on Tuesday (March 13), to coincide with the start of the three-month close season for river fishing starting on March 15, encouraging all users of the countryside and particularly anglers to help tackle the problems.


Crimes are as diverse as the rural environment itself, ranging from theft of fish to public health issues and destruction of Sites of Special Scientific Interest.


The signal crayfish is an alien invader that is having devastating effects on native crayfish and a number of other freshwater species, but while it is illegal to return any to the water, it is also illegal for any unlicensed person to catch them and introduce them to the food chain.


Along the Sussex coast are a number of cockle beds that are attractive to criminals who similarly are introducing shellfish into the human food chain without the rigorous checks necessary to ensure that they are fit for consumption.


There are many miles of rivers and canals and vast acreages of still waters across the county, containing individual fish that can be worth in excess of £10,000 each. These are obviously very attractive to thieves, but along with the losses sustained by the people who own them, including many fishing clubs and organisations, there is the serious risk of the spread of disease. Fish movements, like livestock, are carefully controlled and unauthorised activity can have a devastating impact on freshwater environments, already threatened by water abstraction, pollution and agricultural run-off.


Sergeant Tom Carter, wildlife crime lead for the force, said: "While there may be some romantic notion of a local poacher tickling a trout to take home for the pot, the reality is that illegal fishing in particular is known to involve organised crime gangs and links to drugs and other crimes.


"This isn't restricted to Sussex, nor just to the UK and we know that illegal movement of fish takes place across national borders and is a very lucrative activity. The Angling Trust has been very proactive nationally and has promoted good working practises between the Environment Agency and police, especially here in the south-east. They also work closely with eastern European fisheries enforcement officers and are have fostered further working relationships with other enforcement agencies on the continent.


"Sussex Police receives calls throughout the year not only about illegal fishing, but also the taking of swans and other waterfowl. We are now reinforcing the ways in which we can deal with these offences with our officers and staff who take these reports and linking in with partners to improve our response.


"The Angling Trust has 500 voluntary bailiffs across the country who act as the eyes and ears for rural and fishing-related crime and we will be working with them to gather intelligence on rural crime issues. However, there are thousands of people who walk the county's rivers, lakes and waterways and we are asking them to also report any suspicious activity to help us build an accurate picture of the scale of the problem and to deal with it more effectively."


Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne has already met with the Angling Trust and agreed to join them and Sussex Police on Op Traverse wildlife patrols.


"Wildlife Crime is often seen as a less serious issue than other rural crimes which is why it's vital to raise awareness of the actual scale of it, and the potentially irreparable damage to the ecology and species sustainability.


"It's also important to recognise the extent to which organised crime is driving the exploitation of the environment and damaging legitimate businesses such as fisheries. I have assured the public that I will make rural crime a priority, and so I am looking forward to the launch of Sussex Police's comprehensive rural crime strategy in the spring.


"In the meantime, I wanted to praise the Angling Trust and Sergeant Tom Carter for driving this initiative and to thank in anticipation all those local anglers who can support Op Traverse."


Charles Bacchus, the Environment Agency's fisheries technical specialist for Sussex, said: "The Environment Agency is delighted to be working with Sussex Police and the Angling Trust to ensure we support legal fishing in Sussex and prevent unlawful activities on our waterways."


David Wardley-Wilkins, the Angling Trust's regional enforcement manager for the south-east, said: "Tackling fish theft and illegal fishing is vital if we are to protect fisheries and having Sussex Police join Operation TRAVERSE is terrific news for all responsible, law-abiding anglers. We very much look forward to working closely with Sussex Police alongside our existing and future partners."


You can report incidents to Sussex Police online or by calling 101. If a crime is taking place, please dial 999. If you believe it to be an Environment Agency issue, you can contact their 24-hour incident line on 0800 807060
