Neighbourhood Policing

Find a Local Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

Purbeck Section covers an area in excess of 200 square miles incorporating Wareham, Swanage, Upton, Bere Regis, Bovington, Wool, Briantspuddle, Affpuddle, Winfrith Newburgh, Lulworth, Lytchett Matravers, Lytchett Minster, Bloxworth, Morden, Sandford, Arne, Stoborough, Studland and Kimmeridge.

An area of outstanding natural beauty, we are responsible for the policing of the Purbeck Peninsula and World Heritage coastline as well as Brownsea Island and the many popular holiday destinations in this largely rural area.

Each area has a dedicated Safer Neighbourhood Team working directly to combat the issues raised with us by members of the community. Please use the link below to find out who your local officers are and make contact with them and get involved in dealing with the issues that effect you and your family - where you live, work and visit. Purbeck Section works closely with our partners in Purbeck District Council and their Crime and Disorder lead Karen Jaggs. We also work with other agencies such as the coastguard, Dorset Fire and Rescue and Youth Services. Community policing is, and will remain, our top priority.

Of course we are committed to reducing crime and bringing those that are responsible for crimes and anti-social behaviour to account. We have had some real successes over the last year and have seen a significant reduction in crimes and an increase in the detection of offenders. There is always more to do and we look forward to continuing to build on these successes.

Please feel free to contact me at Wareham Police Station.
