The Eastcliff & Springbourne section is made up of a large residential population along with a thriving tourist and business trade, due to the close proximity of the beach and transport links. The problems associated with policing both a business and residential community are complicated and the team work closely with partner agencies to reduce and prevent crime.

Boscombe has a popular shopping precinct which includes a local market and a historical shopping arcade within walking distance from Boscombe Pier and beach. Our iconic Police Enquiry Box is in the centre of this regenerating community, enabling local residents and traders to engage with their local officers. Surrounding the precinct is a large residential community. This provides a diverse range of challenges which the team continuously strive to tackle.

Agencies have identified that there is growing evidence of city-based drug networks extending their drug dealing activity into new areas, many of which are coastal and market towns. The drug networks will often take over the home of a vulnerable person in order to use it as a base for drug dealing. This has a significant impact on the local community and increases the level of street dealing and ASB
