Street Safe

StreetSafe is a new online tool from Sussex Police where you can anonymously tell them locations on a map where you feel unsafe, even if a crime hasn’t occurred. They can use information you share to help consider what measures could improve public safety. This is a non-emergency tool – if a crime has taken place, always contact the police via their website, by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency.

Burgess Hill has a well-established Shopwatch Scheme with 24 town centre shops actively participating. The Group works closely with Burgess Hill Town Council and Sussex Police. There is a close working relationship with neighbouring Shopwatch schemes and local schools.

The benefits of Burgess Hill Shopwatch include:

•   Information sharing of local issues affecting stores and businesses.
•   Crime prevention, crime detection and working collectively for the benefit of all stores, businesses and customers.
•   Safety – assist vulnerable people and other customers in the town centre.
