Brighton & Hove smashes targets on begging
Intense activity on the part of the police and Brighton & Hove City Council has lead to a 90% reduction in the number of people begging in the city. This achievement is 50% up on the target of 60% set by the Home Office.
Begging on the streets of Brighton & Hove has almost been eliminated. In 2003 a total of 33 people were identified as regular street beggars. Today this number is just three.
This remarkable success owes much to the efforts of Sergeant Richard Siggs and his team working in close collaboration with the council and other partners.
