Westbourne, as the name suggests, is a small town to the west of the main Bournemouth town centre, on the boundary of the Borough of Poole. The retail centre has over 300 trading premises of different types; there are no nightclubs in the area, and thus nowhere near as big a night-time economy as the town centre.

Westcliff is a key tourist location, with many hotels and guesthouses located here. The beaches at Alum and Durley Chines are both popular all year round and particularly beautiful, especially catering for families. Joint patrols on the Overcliff with Council 'Open Spaces' staff are conducted during the busy summer season; these are primarily carried out to deter nuisance, especially street drinking and the lighting of fires.
There is just one school in the area, St Michaels.

We remain focussed on intelligence led policing, using information and crime analysis to direct our patrolling officers. While reducing crime in the area and increasing the number of offenders brought to justice.
