Report by PCSO Jamie Honywood:
Jamie congratulated David on his success in the election for Panel Chairman, 47 votes were cast with David receiving 77% of the vote with Katie coming second. Brenda was thanked for her work over the past months.
Jamie said his new role was starting and all PCSOs would now be based in Chatsworth Road Worthing, response times for emergencies were expected to be between 4 & 7 minutes and one hour for non emergencies, there would no longer be beat officers but they will still try to patrol & go to Local Events. Adur Worthing Horsham are now all one Policing area with a shared base in Worthing. It is expected that Lancing could get more coverage under the new scheme. Our Local Sergeant for the last 7 yeas Steve Turner will still bring his local knowledge to the Team. Lancing Police station was still set for sale.
New powers training was ongoing as too many Officers accepted redundancy.

There had been no progress with the A27 east bound speed board, Doris Martin said she would contact the Highways England to see what progress they are making.
Pam Davey reported the loss of the NHW monthly news letter,information coming from the Police is now too generic lacking in detail with no specific locations of the crimes being given, no burglaries on the broadcast system. The NHW committee took the decision today ( 28th June 2016) to stop publication, Pam feels that Neighbourhood Watch is being ignored by the Police, even though sixty percent of NHW members are not on email, so will not benefit from any information coming from Helen Bubloz.
The News Letter was distributed by Pam & Peter Backus to 70 delivery points taking 4 hours, thanks were given to Pam for here efforts over the years. Pam's new email address is pamdavey55@hotmail com.
Some possible solutions : Co-ordinators sign up for the weekly crime reports and print of relevant details for their neighbours, extract Court results for our area from the Worthing Herald.
Music Festival : No problems very well organised.
Doris Martin suggested that people should be sent to boot camps, also reporting that there had been several attempts to break into her garage
Sid Hilsum felt that no local beat policing would cause problems in the future.
