I moved to brighton and hove 25 years ago as it felt safe,ive since been a victim of crime several times.The thing that annoys me now is officially crime is down but in reality crime especially over the last 12 months is dramatically up especially after dark but its not recorded as we have very few police on duty after dark to record it.Even the local police stations have now closed and the police on-line reporting form gets ignored as I found out last year so even the public cant easily report crime.Our nightlife is policed by private security backed up by private security in cars parked where police cars used to park.Ive also noticed police don't ask for help from the public until months after an event is this to cut the workload down? I certainly don't feel safe in this city anymore and one thing for sure you cant rely on police backup in your time of need as the police even admit after the cuts they cant always respond to all 999 calls.Perhaps communities should be given the option what our nightlife has done and be able to hire private security patrols as at the moment sussex is OPEN for crime with a police force due to the cuts UNFIT FOR SERVICE.

Why do you use multiple user names to post the same response to everyone of these types of stories? It wouldn't be so annoying if you didn't copy and paste exactly the same thing over and over again. "Not fit for purpose". We get it. You've already said it. Why say it again.

If your gonna keep repeating yourself add some detail. What are are the serious crimes you have been victim to? Where do you get the information that crime is up? Do you actually live in Brighton? I only ask because you never divulge the information or the sources your argument, just the same generic uninformed hearsay.

Brighton is as safe a city as your likely to find in England. In fact, compared to other places I've lived it's very safe.

Irony? I didn't see any mention of the sport of boxing in the article.
The only irony is in your username. "NoBrains" would also be ironic!

I've lived in Brighton for nigh on 50 years, grew up in Moulsecoomb and lived in Whitehawk for a time and have NEVER been the victim of a crime and nor has any of my family or close friends that I can think of - so you are either very unlucky or are frequenting places where this sort of behaviour happens or maybe associating with people who carry out these type of crimes?!
