A group of Brownies won a chance to tour the Eastbourne Police base in Hamonds Drive and meet sniffer dog Basil.

Police recently ran a competition to design a poster depicting Eastbourne Police in the community, with the winners announced as Amelia Poore, aged 10, Beth Higgins, aged 10, and Sophie Lovatt, aged 7 - all from the 4th Eastbourne Brownies. PC Barrett said, “It was wonderful to see the children’s excited faces when they saw Basil. It was lovely to teach the children about the various dogs we have at Sussex Police and Basil especially enjoys meeting his many fans.”
