Southbourne, Pokesdown and Littledown form the Policing area between Boscombe and Christchurch. They are relaxed multi-cultural residential areas, but still retain a bustling locality for tourists with some unique and individual shops and high street chains. The primary attraction is the areas sandy Blue Flag beaches, which provides a quieter retreat from the more crowded beach along the coast at Bournemouth.

Disrupting ‘County Lines’ networks and criminal exploitation of vulnerable people

Issue Date: 20/01/2020

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
