PC Ian Harman retires
Community policing a huge part of Ian's long career

January 2007
The police force in Sussex has been Ian Harman's life, man and boy, for more than three decades. But now, almost 33 years since he joined as a 16-year-old cadet, he has retired.
The former police constable, who is 48, has spent the bulk of his service in the Petworth area. From 1985 until 1993 he was beat bobby at Northchapel, living in the police house there and patrolling his own patch - Northchapel, Ebernoe, Lurgashall, Balls Cross and Shillinglee.
He was also well known in the Lodsworth area, looking after that when its own officer was off duty. "We used to share the car, and each other's areas as well," he recalled.
Report in January 18 2007 issue of the Observer

High number of motorcyclists being killed or injured on Sussex roads
Press Officer: Patrick Rea
Telephone: 01273 404173

13 August 2007
Press Release:
Sussex Police has become increasingly concerned at the high number of motorcyclists being killed and seriously injured on Sussex roads.
In the past three weeks, four people have been killed and two others so seriously injured that they were thought unlikely to survive. It is not hard to imagine the consequences of these tragedies on the families of those involved, whose lives have been irreversibly blighted, but an often overlooked cost is the trauma experienced by witnesses who can be deeply affected for some time after.
The majority of fatal motorcycle collisions are single motorcycles on 'A' roads where the rider has lost control of his machine. It is apparent to investigating officers that the causes are riders failing to respect the road by ignoring road signs and markings, coupled with thrill seeking behaviour such as excessive speed, taking risks by overtaking vehicles in the face of oncoming traffic, inexperience and riding beyond the capabilities of themselves or their machines.
Road Policing Unit officers are operating a zero tolerance policy to those that are caught and are determined to put pressure on motorcyclists to try to reduce the number of them being killed. As well as the obvious issue of irresponsible, dangerous riding, including speeding, Sussex Police are targeting those who deliberately engage in any illegal behaviour including riders with illegal visors that may look good but impair vision, illegal number plates clearly designed only to avoid detection and other irregularities.
Insp Mark Armstrong, Sussex Police RPU said; "Motorcyclists will tell you that the main cause of their crashes is car drivers not looking properly and not seeing them. This may be true in urban areas where lower speeds make fatalities rare, and in some very few cases on the open road but it is largely a myth."
Insp. Armstrong added, "The vast majority of motorcyclists residing in or visiting Sussex ride in a safe and responsible manner and we are certainly not anti motorcyclist, many of our officers being riders themselves, but unless motorcyclists face up to their own responsibility for these deaths, more will follow. "Research has shown that nine out of ten motorcycling fatalities are on 'A' roads and that the riders themselves are the cause. The latest collisions support these findings. There is still a hard core of riders, a fair number of them old enough to know better, predominantly using high powered sports bikes, using the roads like a race track."
