  • District Commanders Monthly Message April 2014

    March was a busy month for Lewes District officers. Our Meet Me In March campaign saw over 50 engagement events across the District, meeting almost 600 members of public in the process. As well as discussing issues important to local residents, traders and workers, officers also conducted over 100 surveys to get feedback on the best ways of engaging with people. We will use this information to try to be even more effective in the future.

    Theft and shoplifting has been highlighted by local traders in Lewes as being a big problem for them at the moment. In response to that, we are now exploring the setting up of a Shopwatch Scheme in the town. All town centre shops have been invited to help shape a scheme which will be most effective for the town and an initial meeting with traders to discuss was extremely productive and promising. I understand how business crime is under-reported to police but hugely impactive on retailers and my Team and I are determined to support them as best we can. If we can make a success of it in Lewes then the model can be rolled out to other locations.

    Lewes Business Crime Group is another really useful crime-reduction initiative. It brings businesses together with partner agencies, such as the police, to tackle crime and disorder.

    The group is a new initiative based on a data-sharing system through this Intranet, which can only be accessed by Members of the Group. Through the Intranet Members share information about people who are committing low-level crime or are involved in anti-social behaviour in the area. The Intranet also enables Members to submit Incident Reports to police. Each Member receives a weekly eNewsletter keeping them up to date with information and updates on the site from the previous 7 days.

    If you wish to join the scheme then please contact PS Rose Hanson at Lewes Police Station on 101 x 563021, or email
