Helping to keep our roads safe
Katy Bourne, Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner recently joined volunteers from Hastings Community Speed Watch as they recorded vehicles exceeding the speed limit.

Sussex Police has created animated scenarios to reinforce how to contact them and support their commitment to keep communities safe and feeling safe. In the two 90 second animations, members of the community share their experiences in choosing the most appropriate way to contact the police be that via their local prevention team, reporting online, calling 101 or 999. The animations include incidents of anti-social behaviour, drink driving, household burglary and distraction burglary.
Do you think rural crime has gone up or down in Sussex? Do you feel safer? What’s your view of the police in your community? It’s vital that the voice of rural communities is heard by those who can make a difference. I urge residents to take part in the survey and help us build a clear picture of crime and anti-social behaviour in rural Sussex and to understand the impact it has where you live or work.
