Bournemouth - Central
Central Bournemouth is bright, vibrant and multicultural, and includes large residential areas, a busy town centre and beaches that have won four Blue Flag awards.
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.
The introduction of Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) provides a regular and highly visible on-street presence, tackling issues of concern to the communities they serve.
Like many other urban locations across the UK, the challenge in policing a popular town centre containing many pubs and clubs involves dealing effectively with alcohol linked offending, disorder and anti-social behaviour.
We remain focused 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.
Additionally, to reduce the number of victims of crime and anti-social behaviour within the night time economy, we have implanted the Dispersal Zone in partnership other agencies, including Bournemouth Borough Council.
We have formed a dynamic, proactive working partnership with a wide variety of agencies including but not limited to street services, housing, drug and outreach teams, in order to tackle the issues of street drinking, drug misuse and related anti-social behaviour.
We continue to work very closely with the retailers, pubs, clubs and hotels through a variety of established and well evolved schemes to deliver the safest possible area to live, work and visit.
