News: Contacting Sussex Police

Posted on 31st December 2019

As part of my induction, I popped into the Burgess Hill police station in The Brow and asked for clarity on how members should contact the police under different circumstances – such as to highlight an incursion by travellers.

FYI – details of gypsy and traveller sites are on WSCC web site. Call the County Council to notify them of any inappropriate incursions on 01243 642139, as well as the Police.

Here’s how to contact Sussex Police:

  • Option 1 – If there’s immediate risk to safety treat the incident as an emergency and call 999
  • Option 2 – If the threat is NOT immediate, call 101
  • Option 3 – For matters of a more preventative nature that require local police involvement call 01273 470101

In all cases make a note of the Police case number, known as the CAD reference and please inform the Coordinator on

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
