Please check your boundary hedges and fences including Roads and Railways every day.

Sussex Police rely heavily on people like you to advise them of any suspect vehicle hanging around of entering your property. Please, if you see any such vehicle contact the police on the non-emergency number 101 with as much information as possible. This includes date and time, where and a good description of the vehicle including the reg no and of any people. Please do not put yourself in any danger but if possible take a photograph. By suppling this information, it puts a vehicle in a location at a certain time, this could help us if a crime takes place in your locality around that time.
