Uckfield to become a hub for policing in East Sussex

Uckfield is to become one of five “hubs” for policing in East Sussex.

East Sussex Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Robin Smith said: “In September response officers will move to five hubs across the division based in Hastings, Battle, Eastbourne, Lewes and Uckfield.

“The changes will not impact on the ability of police to respond to emergency calls.

“Response times should not be affected as the response teams will continue to be mobile, visibly patrolling across the districts as they do now.”

A Responsive Investigation Team will also be based at Uckfield and go live towards the end of September.
