New sergeant Stuart joins the team at Seaford

A new face has joined the team at Seaford.

Sergeant Stuart Mullins had been the Neighbourhood Policing Team Sergeant at Bexhill before moving over to Seaford earlier this month as acting Sergeant Chris Wright leaves to head to Lewes where he will continue his work for Sussex Police. Sgt Mullins, trained at the Regional Training Centre in Kent, and joined Sussex Police in 1989. In his 23 years with the force the 49-year-old has worked as a response PC at Eastbourne and Gatwick. As a Sergeant he has previously worked in Seaford and the Lewes district when he was based at Newhaven. Other roles have seen him working as a custody sergeant at Hastings, Brighton and Eastbourne and as a Neighbourhood Policing Team Sergeant in Bexhill.

He said, “I joined the police because I wanted to do something different and genuinely wanted to do something to help people.

“My role in Seaford is to lead the Neighbourhood Policing Team and to follow on from all of the good work that Chris Wright has done. Our job is to is reassure the public and to encourage them to engage with us and tell us about the problems they have that may appear to be petty but at the same time have the potential to blight their lives. “We then try to work with our partners and other agencies to sort these problems out. I have an excellent team and hope to bring all of my previous experience to the role. I like Seaford and have strong links to the town. I was delighted to be the successful applicant for what is a fantastic job and hope to bring some continuity to the post and become as familiar face in the town as the rest of the team.”
