A New Way To Report Crimes And Information Across Sussex
15th April 2019


Police Forces across England & Wales are using a new system called Single Online Home (SOH). This is a policing portal which allows the public to easily report crimes, incidents and information online.


The police non-emergency phone number 101 remains available if personal contact is required. However, using SOH significantly reduces wait times for those reporting crimes or incidents, or if you simply wish to provide some information to the police. Reporting online via SOH is easy and effective. It has been positively endorsed by a number of Neighbourhood Watch members who have had the opportunity to use it.


The new portal can be found on the home page of the recently updated Sussex Police website In addition to the Report area, here you will find a new box "Tell us about ". There is a drop down from which you can select, for example, "Something you've seen or heard".


We have given you this information as we know that some people are rightly cautious about clicking on links in E-mails. However, there are some shortcut links available as below, which we have tested for you.


If reporting a crime or incident which has occurred in Sussex, SOH is available directly via You can scroll further down that page to see other options.


If reporting a crime or incident which has occurred outside of Sussex, SOH is available via


If it's something that you've seen or heard the link is


SOH should not be used for an emergency - dialling 999 remains the means of contact if there is danger to a person or if a crime is being committed.


All reports submitted via SOH will receive an immediate acknowledgement message. Reports are reviewed in live time, and within 48 hours Sussex Police will provide a personal response from a named staff member.



Beach Green Lighting Project
8th April 2019



Many comments are received regarding the lack of lighting on Beach Green. The Parish Council had considered installing promenade lighting (possibly extending as far as Widewater) but this has proved too costly.


However, there is an alternative option - to install lighting from the path at the southwest corner of the Car Park, along the back of the Car Wash running south towards The Perch and kiosk, along to the central path, to switch on at dusk and automatically switch off at a nominated time. There would be the ability to add to the scheme in the future.


We would like to hear your views on this suggestion. Please contact the Parish Office to let us know whether you support this section of Beach Green being lit.


Sussex Police funding 2018-2022
17th November 2018


Sussex Police funding 2018-2022


Sussex Police have started the biggest intake of new police officers for over a decade. This has been made possible by the increase in police precept of an average £12 for a band D property, and the PCC releasing £17 million from reserves. It means that over the next four years, Sussex will have 200 more police officers on the frontline than it does today.


Although residents are pleased to hear that local policing will be strengthened by these 200 extra officers, they are already indicating that they would like even more. That is why the PCC has opened a survey on her website to gauge potential support for raising more funding locally if the Government lifts the current cap on the police precept.
