Officers were called to a group of youngsters reported to be causing damage around the War Memorial on #Hailsham High Street around 7:30pm Tuesday evening.

Units attended, however unfortunately were unable to locate those involved – officers remained in the area and assisted in tidying up the damaged flowers.

Senseless acts of vandalism will not be tolerated.

In response to repeated reports of anti-social behaviour around the town centre, additional teams have been out regularly patrolling; unrelated to this matter, 3 arrests have already been made this week.

Whilst we can not be everywhere we continue to target hot-spot areas, and would urge communities to continue reporting ASB at the time to us online or to 101 (non-emergencies), or by calling 999 in an emergency/crime in action.
