Bournemouth Campus Police

Find your neighbourhood

We are Sergeant Paul Harding, PC Kev Miller & PCSO Sam Venner and we are responsible for community policing for Bournemouth University and Arts University Bournemouth.

We can be seen patrolling the two universities' campuses on a regular basis. Please feel free to stop us for a chat. We also work very closely with our colleagues from the Winton, Charminster and Lansdowne NPTs because they cover the areas where the majority of the town’s students live and spend their time.

We have a Police Office on Campus. If you have any community safety concerns or would like to speak to one of us in person, come and see us in Room T108, Talbot House, Bournemouth University’s Talbot Campus.  We also have a presence on social media where we would welcome you to follow up so you can keep up to date with what’s going on within your own and the wider community.

Please note, our mail box and social media site is not constantly monitored so if a crime is in progress or life is in danger, please dial 999 or 101 for non-emergency.

Local Priorities

Student noise complaints

Issue Date: 01/10/2021

Bournemouth Campus Police are working closely with Environmental Health Officers from BCP (Council) to educate students around noise related issues. This problem includes parties and persistent loud music which is effecting both student residents and the wider community.

Action Date: 01/03/2022

Student Burglaries

Issue Date: 01/10/2021

Bournemouth campus police will be working closely with accommodation providers for Arts University Bournemouth and Bournemouth University students to offer education and advice to reduce the risk of students becoming victims of burglaries. We often see a spike in incidents during the first few months of term as students adapt to their new independent style of living and therefore we will be conducting patrols around areas that have a large student population.
