Neighbourhood Policing

Police Force:
Find a Local Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

North Bournemouth police area covers a large geographical area taking in many different and diverse communities. It has a large area of residential housing to the North and in general throughout the area, two large Golf courses and parkland on the East and West, with the almost continental feel of Charminster with it's cafes, restaurants and night time entertainment to the South.

The ethos of policing in North Bournemouth is to make it an even more safe and pleasant place in which to live, work or visit, for all sections of our community.

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

Crime levels within North Bournemouth have decreased consistently over the past three years – with 7,062 recorded crimes in 2008, 6,893 in 2009 and 6,819 in 2010 – a 3.4% reduction in crime in the North Bournemouth area.

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

It is a very busy area to police and North Bournemouth officers and staff, all based at Winton Police Station, are fully committed to delivering the best service possible. Anti social behaviour is one of our main priorities and this is being tackled in a number of ways such as high visibility patrolling and carrying out interactive educational programmes with partner agencies in sedcondary schools.

We recognise that the effect of crime and anti social behaviour in North Bournemouth can have a big impact on people's quality of life, the area's economy and reputation. Our challenge is to work together in partnership with other key agencies responsible for public safety and wellbeing, in order to to reduce crime and disorder and the fear of such. In addition, we aim to reassure the community of North Bournemouth through regular meetings and updates organised and held by the various Safer Neighbourhood teams that operate throughout North Bournemouth
