Policing

Neighbourhood Policing

Police Force:
Find a Local Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

Poole North is a diverse area that includes large residential areas, places of public entertainment, schools, shopping areas, industrial estates and retail parks alongside heathland areas that are designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

The policing of the area is strongly focused on reducing crime and anti-social behaviour to improve the quality of life for everyone who lives in or visits the area for work or recreation.

Our patrol officers provide a resilient, effective 24 hour policing capability responding to the wide range of incidents and emergencies that can occur in the area. These officers work closely with our Safer Neighbourhood Teams to provide an effective policing service that recognises and responds to the priorities of the community and yet is available to deal with the full spectrum of services required from the police.

The Safer Neighbourhood Teams are dedicated to specific areas and consist of Police Officers, Police Community Support Officers and Volunteers working in close partnership with other agencies and the local communities to tackle issues and secure long term solutions.

This approach has proven it’s value. Crime in the area continues to reduce, in the last year overall crime has reduced by 9.2%. Overall anti-social behaviour has seen an even more significant reduction, specifically rowdy nuisance and inconsiderate behaviour has reduced by 30.3%. This shows how our partnership approach and community support works to secure a better quality of life.

We will continue to build upon these successes and will never tire in our work to drive down crime and anti-social behaviour. We will support our communities but will deal robustly with offenders.

The Safer Neighbourhood Teams are always interested to hear from members of the public and I would encourage you to contact them to discuss any issues that concern you.
