Poole is a town with a mix of tourism and industry. It has the largest natural harbour in Europe. Brownsea Island is one of the few sites where red squirrels survive. The beaches have won nineteen Blue Flag awards and two Premier Seaside Awards. Its heathland is a site of special scientific interest.

The town is home to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Poole Pirates Speedway team, and Sunseeker the luxury motor yacht constructor. The Merck Group – the world's leading manufacturer of liquid crystals found in computers, watches and TV sets, has a centre for excellence in Poole. The RNLI also has its national headquarters in Poole and operates a fleet of lifeboats from there.

With the introduction of Safer Neighbourhood Teams they provide a regular and highly visible on-street presence, tackling issues of concern to the communities they serve.

Crime levels within Poole South have decreased over the past three years – from 7420 offences in the year ending March 2005 to 6613 offences in the year ending March 2008, a fall of around 10.8 per cent. This represents 807 fewer victims of crime than there were three years ago.

The average yearly detection rate for all crime during the same period was 24 per cent.

The police at Poole South are committed to reducing crime and the opportunity for crime as well as reducing anti-social behaviour. The policing takes place on many fronts: community policing, response, operations, partnership and investigations.
