Breaks to vans in Broadbridge Heath
We have received calls with regards to vans being entered and power tools being stolen in Broadbridge Heath. The suspects are dressed in work attire and described as wearing high Vis jackets and hard hats.

People are being reminded to lock vehicles when left unattended.
Steyning Police Station
To keep pace with advances happening elsewhere in society, we recognise the need to reinvest in the areas we serve, ensuring our facilities enable us to work in an agile fashion, using technology to serve our communities in the best way possible. As a result, we recently undertook a refurbishment of Steyning Police Station.

This refurbishment has vastly improved areas for staff, officers and the public, providing a modernised, open plan space that makes the very best use of the building.

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne said, “I am pleased that this hub for community policing in Steyning has been remodelled with new operational technology and a much brighter, welcoming décor, making it friendlier for the public and a nicer working environment for staff.

“I have responsibility for the police estates and this is part of an ongoing refurbishment plan to modernise and improve Sussex Police stations that are no longer fit for purpose, with high running costs and layouts that don’t support modern policing requirements. These updated facilities will further enable officers and staff to provide the very best service to the public”.
The station is now fully accessible to the public and will be open Monday – Friday between the hours of 10:00 and 14:00, excluding bank holidays. A yellow phone will also remain on site permanently which can be used 24 hours a day to report crime.

'Run, Hide, Tell International' - advice for summer holidaymakers overseas
As UK schools break up for the summer holidays, security experts want holidaymakers in Surrey and Sussex to join the millions of people who have watched vital safety information before they fly.

Since being launched in 2017, the four-minute 'Run, Hide, Tell International' film – which highlights what to do in the unlikely event of a gun or knife terror attack – has been viewed by more than 10 million people nationwide.

As the busy holiday period gets underway, the film will be promoted on social media channels in a bid to reach as many holidaymakers as possible.
Since the devastating Sousse attack in 2015, CT Policing’s international footprint has expanded significantly, with increases to the number of officers providing a range of security liaison and advice to other countries, ensuring they are better prepared to keep British citizens safe when overseas. 

ABTA have also translated the video into 15 different languages for use in multiple countries, to improve awareness amongst the holiday representatives, hotel staff and security guards who look after millions of UK tourists every year.

Police issue renewed appeal to A283 collision
Police have issued a renewed appeal for witnesses after a car collided with a man on the A283 at Steyning.

The incident occurred in a layby shortly before 6.30pm on Wednesday 5 June.

The victim, a local man in his 60s, was hit by the car which then drove off. He was subsequently treated for his injuries at Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.

Police enquiries led to the arrest of two people shortly afterwards – a 42-year-old man from Worthing, arrested on suspicion of committing grievous bodily harm and failing to stop after a road traffic accident, has been bailed until 22 August pending further enquiries; a 40-year-old woman from Worthing also arrested in connection with the incident has since been released without charge.

Detectives are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident – or anyone who has dash cam or CCTV which may have captured it – to report it online or call 101, quoting serial 1073 of 05/06.

You can also contact the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or report it online.
