to Bournemouth Central Section
Central Bournemouth is bright, vibrant and
multicultural, and includes large residential areas, a
busy town centre and beaches that have won four Blue Flag
It has a population that increases
substantially when visitors and workers are taken into account.
The ethos of policing in Central
Bournemouth is one of high visibility patrols to help make the town
safer and feel safer.
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.

Neighbourhood Team by following this link >
Crime levels within Central
Bournemouth have decreased during the past three years. There
were 5,444 recorded crimes in 2010/11, a small increase to 6,083
recorded crimes in 2011/12 and a reduction to 4,874 recorded crimes
in 2012/13. This is an overall reduction in recorded crime of
around 11% over the past three years in Central Bournemouth and
represents 570 fewer victims of crime than there were three years
Like many other urban locations
across the UK, the
challenge in policing a popular town centre containing many pubs
and clubs are unsurprisingly dealing effectively with alcohol
linked offending, disorder and anti-social behaviour.
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.
