Report an abandoned vehicle/anti-social driving

Follow the link to the Operation Crackdown site.

Operation Crackdown is a joint initiative run by Sussex Police and the Safer Sussex Roads Partnership which provides the communities of Sussex with an opportunity to report specific instances of anti-social driving and enables Sussex Police to develop intelligence regarding repeat offenders, vehicles, times and locations which can then be used to plan, target and deploy police resources. 

If you have any specific information about anti-social driving, including speeding, in and around Patching please visit the Operation Crackdown website ( ) to report this. Alternatively, you can call 01243 642222 during office hours to speak to an operator.

About the incident – you will asked for:

  • The vehicle registration number (licence plate)
  • Make, model and colour of vehicle
  • Details about when and where the incident happened – the online map will help you identify the area
  • Any information that may help us identify the driver

About you - your contact details will be treated in confidence. Leaving your email address will allow Operation Crackdown to make contact with you should the report need clarifying and you will receive details of other services that Sussex Police provide online.’
