The Secure Redoubt Journey

10 May 2021

In July 2020, the Home Office granted £419,000 towards a local acquisitive crime reduction initiative in the Redoubt area of Eastbourne.

Secure Redoubt was a six-month partnership project set up to prevent thefts, burglaries, shoplifting and vehicle crime in this specific part of Eastbourne.

The partners included 3VA, Eastbourne Borough Council, Eastbourne Business Crime Group, Neighbourhood Watch, Sussex Police and the Sussex Police & Crime Commissioner.

Secure Redoubt engaged with local people and made the area a safer place to live and work by:

  • Improving the security of 120 homes for free
  • Delivering 250 free home security packs
  • Cleaning-up alleyways and installing lockable gates
  • Enhancing and opening up the Pavilion Gardens to make it a safer place
  • Putting up 38 new CCTV cameras at potential crime hot spots.
