EastCliff, Springbourne & Boscombe
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.

Neighbourhood Policing Team
Neighbourhood policing improves the quality of life within Dorset communities. Working together with partner agencies and problem-solving with local people and groups, we will target the policing issues that matter most in your area.
Get in touch with us today to raise any issues you have and to find out what priorities we are currently working on. This is your chance to influence the service that the police, and our partners, provide.
You can contact us via the Dorset Police website or social media, where we also promote upcoming meetings and events. We are based at: Boscombe Hub 501-507 Christchurch Road Bournemouth.
The Neighbourhood Policing Team works with colleagues across Dorset Police, but does not respond to emergency calls. If a crime is in progress or life is in danger, always dial 999 immediately, so we can help you as quickly as possible.
