Information sent on behalf of Sussex Police


27/10/2021
Sussex Country Watch Newsletter
 
Firstly, I must apologise for the absence of a Newsletter last week, due to technical problems I was unable to access the files I work from. I have incorporated the two weeks.
 

Please check your boundary hedges and fences to include, especially those that border Highways and Railways at least once every day.
 

Crime and incident update
If you have any evidence, no matter how small, on any of the crimes listed below, please call it in on the non-emergency number 101 and quote the reference number and date as given to the left of the report, of for that matter any other crime.
 
 

ADVICE AND INFORMATION
 
In the early hours of this morning, intruders entered a farm just across the East Sussex border in Kent and attempted to steal GPS equipment from tractors. This seems to be a fast growing crime, and as you might know that often these devices are worth tens of thousands of pounds each. Please ensure that vehicles with this type of equipment fitted are kept in highly secure buildings and please ensure that you keep a record of serial numbers.
 
 

POACHING & HARE COURSING
We are still receiving many calls each week concerning Poaching and/or Hare Coursing, far too many to report on without getting boring, anyone who suspects illegal poaching or hare coursing is taking place, please call Sussex Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency, i.e. poaching or hare coursing is occurring in front of you there and then.
