Introducing the new Specialist Enforcement Unit
A new police unit has been launched to track and catch dangerous and wanted criminals
using the Sussex roads network.
The Specialist Enforcement Unit (SEU) will carry out disruption and enforcement
operations on roads across the county, targeting those involved in serious, organised and
violent crime.
The SEU, a mix of highly-trained police officers and detectives, is equipped to be a onestop-shop to fight road crime – with the ability to identify, intercept and apprehend
offenders, seize drugs and stolen goods, and investigate the crimes through to conviction.
The unit is the latest in a series of police enforcement teams to be launched across
Sussex in the past year funded by the Government’s Uplift programme and local precept
investment.
The team has a blend of specialist skills and can use a range of tactics to tackle criminals
using the road network, including advanced driving skills and the use of a police dog unit
to track offenders and search vehicles.
Covering hundreds of miles of road network across Sussex, the team will carry out
operations and proactive patrols, working closely with colleagues and supporting the work
of regional and national agencies, targeting some of Sussex’s most wanted and prolific
criminals.
The SEU forms part of wider investment to support local policing priorities, to strengthen
local policing, tackle crime and prevent harm, disrupt serious and organised crime and to
support victims and safeguard the vulnerable.
