Bournemouth North - East

Find your neighbourhood

North Bournemouth Police area covers a large geographical area taking in many different and diverse communities. It has a large area of residential housing to the north and throughout the area, two large golf courses and parkland on the east and west, with the continental feel of Charminster with it's cafes, restaurants and night time entertainment to the south.

Bournemouth North East NPT is the Dorset Police Neighbourhood Policing team that covers Winton, Townsend, Strouden Park, Moordown, Meyrick & Talbot, Charminster, Queens Park, Throop & Muscliff areas of Bournemouth.

The ethos of policing in North Bournemouth is to make it an even more safe and pleasant place in which to live, work or visit, for all sections of our community.

The introduction of Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) provides a regular and highly visible on-street presence, tackling issues of concern and building relationships with the communities they serve.

It is a very busy area to police and North Bournemouth officers and staff, all based at Winton Police Station, and are fully committed to delivering the best service possible. Anti-social behaviour is one of our main priorities and this is being tackled in a number of ways, such as high visibility patrolling and carrying out interactive educational programmes with partner agencies in secondary schools.

We recognise that the effect of crime and anti-social behaviour in North Bournemouth can have a big impact on people's quality of life, the area's economy and reputation. Our challenge is to work together in partnership with other key agencies responsible for public safety and wellbeing, in order to reduce crime and disorder and the fear of such. In addition, we aim to reassure the Community of North Bournemouth through regular meetings, face to face engagement and social media updates where we can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

When reporting issues it would be really helpful that they are clear, concise and as detailed as possible in the circumstances. Highlighting accurate times, locations and details enables us to plan and look to be in the right location at the right time thereby increasing our success.

 

Our top five priorities are listed below and what we are currently doing to tackle the concerns. Equally we are looking for support from our local communities and as by working to together we can achieve greater success.

 

****************** CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) RESPONSE ******************

With the current situation, we are focusing our efforts on high visibility patrols in key areas. We will be challenging people we come across in line with Government legislation along with supporting the most vulnerable within our communities.

As your local Neighbourhood Policing Team we are continuing to police toward our local priorities and targets, despite the current situation. We would normally be holding face to face engagements with our communities to help us build a better picture around what our local community priorities should be. We are keen to continue harnessing your community concerns to achieve this. Therefore we have created this quick online survey to help us make an inform decision around our NPT local priorities.

Local Priorities

Bournemouth North East Top 5 Priorities

Issue Date: 08/10/2020

Drug related ASB - We currently have been receiving a number of calls around ASB and misuse of drugs in and around our local communities. We are actively engaging with those reporting to highlight times and locations.

 

We are unable to be everywhere all the time, so detailed times is very key for us to deploy our resources to the problem at the right time. Once we have gained community information we will carry out overt patrols where you will see a uniformed presence, looking to arrest offenders causing the issues to our local communities.

 

Drugs effects a wide cohort of ages and if you have concerns around a child, change in behaviour, financial situation or becoming detached don't be afraid to have that discussion with them yourself. If concerns persist then please contact your local school or NPT who can discuss the issue with you. 

 

**********************************************************************************************

 

Vagrancy, begging and street drinking – We will continue to look at dealing with beggars and street dealers, particularly those that persistently demand in a menacing and aggressive manner. We are working with partner BCP on this matter as there is a wider work going on across the country about various schemes that have tackled this national issue and are working together to look at our preferred response. Whilst also working with other external agencies to ensure a joined up and sustainable approach is achieved. We have seen some successes recently and this has been down to communities supporting the partnership approach.

 

************************************************************************************************

 

Inquisitive crime thefts and breaks – We will continue to deal with offenders caught for such crimes. Sadly we see only to often that opportunists prey on those that forget to lock cars or close windows on their properties. NPT to continue to promote crime prevention advice for all to assist in reducing victims of crime.

 

***********************************************************************************************

 

Engagement - Wider engagement to our communities to assist in prevention of crime, education and keeping our residents informed and utilising virtual streams due to current restrictions.

 

***********************************************************************************************

COVID Compliance – Throughout the pandemic we have worked with our partners in BCP and have continued to work with our communities s part of the four E's - to engage with them, explain the rules and encourage compliance. We will however use enforcement when appropriate. The vast majority of the public have been sensible and responsible in their approach throughout the pandemic. Everyone has a social responsibility to stick within the rules to prevent the further spread of the virus. We cannot tolerate people deliberately flouting the rules and putting other people's lives in danger. We will work together with other members of Dorset Police as well as with our partners such as BCP in response to the current situation we are currently in.
