City Assist Ambassadors
The City Assist team in the purple t'shirts and wide brimmed hats, have been patrolling the streets of Hastings since October 2013, and have made a huge difference to the feel of the city. They’re quick on the scene to sort out any unruly behaviour or help answer questions for passers by.
The City Assist programme includes six team members, They operate in shifts seven days a week between 9am–6pm.
Their main role is to provide an authoritative presence and to step in to guide people when they display unsociable behaviour within the CBD, but they are also there to and provide assistance to tourists and other visitors. They can help to settle disputes, and pass on details to police where necessary.
If you need assistance from the team to help with these types of situations, phone City Assist One 027 839 6073 or City Assist Two 027 839 5313.
However, if you need to report a crime you must always contact the Police in the first instance by calling 111.
