initiatives. Yesterday morning (Monday) our ward
councillors along with representatives from Macquarie Quay, The
Broadwalk and SHRA met with Premier Marinas and Premier's security
company to discuss anti-social behaviour around the inner harbour
and on the harbour spit.
Several initiatives are to be put in place. These include new
signage such as warnings about CCTV being in operation and ‘no
fires’, and the installation of a new HD camera at the end of
Macquarie Quay looking towards the spit. It is also planned to
liaise with the language schools to have them include something
about anti-social behaviour in their briefing packs for students and host
families. There will also be increased security at
weekends with security officers covering the spit area.
In addition to this, Insp Barrow from Sussex Police plans to
run operation Blitz in the area at the end of May/beginning of June
for the 9 evenings around the next school half term. The PCSO’s
assigned will have a PC from Prevention joining them.
