Quality Streets event taking place at St John’s church hall

A QUALITY Streets event is taking place at St John’s church hall, Meads, on January 26 (12pm-2pm).

The aim of Quality Streets is to identify one area per month per police district and to work with partners to take visible positive action.

It is hoped that the event will help raise the visibility of the local Neighbourhood Policing Teams.

Organisers also hope it will encourage communities to engage with the police and other agencies, to give people an understanding of crime prevention techniques, and to help target the more deprived communities in Eastbourne in improving public confidence.

This, in turn, will help encourage people to report anti-social behaviour.

There will be representatives from the Fire Service, Eastbourne Homes, Eastbourne Borough Council, ESSC Trading Standards, Neighbourhood Watch and the Seaside Neighbourhood Panel.
