Update: 22nd February 2017

A recent spate of anti-social behaviour has been reported in Round Hill (Roundhill Crescent and D'Aubigny Rd.in particular) including: deliberate smashing of bottles on the pavement in two locations ( the bottles were seen to have been taken from a basement flat); eggs and fruit thrown on the paint work and windows of a house, resulting in one broken window; and interference with bikes in the bike racks in D'Aubigny Road.

PC Megan, who covers our area, has responded by promising to increase the patrols in these streets

The police have advised that all crimes should be reported using telephone number 101 if reported after the event, and on 999 if the crime is in the process of being committed.

As with many other areas of our city, Round Hill has lost its community police officer. Bonnie's last day with Sussex Police was on 25th November 2016 and she sent through the November Crime Figures for our neighbourhood that morning. We thank her for her excellent work.

  1. Vehicle Crime
  2. Burglaries
  3. Theft of bicycles

















How secure is your home?

Daily security

  • Keep all wallets, credit cards and car keys out of sight and out of reach.
  • If you leave your house empty, even if you are in the back garden, lock all the doors and windows
  • An intruder alarm can be an effective deterrent against burglars
  • Make it a habit to mark your valuables by using your postcode and house number or name
  • Some articles are unsuitable for marking so photograph them next to a ruler
  • Register your property at www.imobolise.com

After Dark

  • Leave some lights on if it will be dark when you get home
  • When you go out in the evening, always leave a light on in a room that cannot be peered into from the road
  • Fit security lighting that can detect movement

Front Door Security

  • Don’t let anyone into your home that you don’t know. Always ask for identification – official visitors won’t mind being asked
  • for ID
  • Fit a door chain or bar and, if you have a solid front door, a wide angle door viewer

In the Garden

  • Ensure that gates or access to the rear of the house are locked and secure
  • Trim overgrown plants – don’t give burglars a hiding place
  • Secure garden tools and ladders in a locked shed or garage to prevent them being used to break in to your home.
