Christchurch Section covers the whole Borough of Christchurch which includes Highcliffe which has its own small police station, and also the parishes of Burton and Hurn. The section also takes responsibility for Bournemouth International Airport and Christchurch Harbour, which is covered by the section’s Marine Unit.

The Borough has a population of approximately 45,000 which swells in the summer due to the influx of tourists who stay at local campsites and hotels, and visit the town’s beaches and the nearby New Forest.

There is a strong relationship between Christchurch Section and Christchurch Borough Council who work as a partnership to improve the lot of local residents. The Christchurch Community Safety Action Group (CSAG), which I chair, has recently been instrumental in establishing a multi-agency youth outreach project – MAYO – engaging with young people in the borough, giving valuable advice on services available, including drugs and sexual health.

We also work closely with the council's Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) to issue fixed penalty notices for issues such as littering and dog fouling.
