The police investigation into the December 2018 Gatwick drone incursion will be under the spotlight at Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne’s monthly Performance & Accountability Meeting (PAM) this Friday (18th October).
PCC Katy Bourne has taken to social media during National Hate Crime Awareness Week, publicly sharing the latest figures for all types of hate crime to show how many people have been affected in the last year.
Sussex PCC Katy Bourne has announced that Sussex Police will get funding for an extra 129 Police officers as part of the Government’s programme to recruit 20,000 more police officers across England and Wales.
Today Police & Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne awarded Veritas Justice, the only stalking advocacy service in Sussex, a further £150,000. This money will enable them to provide life saving support to nearly 300 more high risk victims of stalking across Sussex.
