A message from Sergeant Hearth
I would like to introduce myself as the new Sergeant covering your area from Hove Town Hall.
The team and I are keen to work with you to solve any problems that we can help with from a policing perspective. You will be aware that there have been a number of changes to PCSO’s roles within Sussex Police and I am conscious, having had feedback from several LATS and Neighbourhood Watch meetings, that communication could be improved. There are a number of ways we are looking at keeping you and your residents informed of what the team are up to and ways to be able to contact my team.
We are looking at the following methods to get our message out to as many people from across the different communities within Hove:
Neighbourhood Alerts – This system, if you or your residents sign up to will get regular, at least once a month, updates about issues in Brighton & Hove and if there are developing concerns in your area there will be alerts regarding this too. I would encourage you and your residents to sign up to this. Further details can be found on https://www.neighbourhoodalert.co.uk/
Twitter – People can follow us on our twitter account @BtonHovePolice.
Facebook – People can follow us by liking Brighton and Hove Police Facebook page
LATs and Neighbourhood Watches will be attended when needed.
I am keen to hear from yourselves if there are any other forms of communication you would like so that we can keep you informed.
If people would like to contact my team they can do so via the below methods:
Our generic email address, which is monitored daily, is email@example.com. Further, people can make contact with my team via telephone on 01273 544578, there is an answerphone facility where people can leave messages and my team will get back to them as soon as they are able to. I would stress however, that if people want immediate officer attendance or to report a crime, then they will need to go through 101 or in an emergency 999.
I look forward to working with you.
