Bournemouth North - East
North Bournemouth forms a large, complex and diverse geographical area with equally diverse demands.
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 its cafes, restaurants and night time entertainment to the south.
North Bournemouth (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 as well as Bournemouth University and the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB).
Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) based at Winton Police Station provide a regular and highly visible presence, tackling issues of concern and building relationships with the communities they serve.
We are committed to our vision of providing an outstanding service to the people of North Bournemouth and make it an even more safe and pleasant place in which to live, work or visit, for all sections of our community.
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 its reputation.
Our mission it to keep people safe and reassure the Community of North Bournemouth through high visibility patrols, regular meetings, face to face engagement and social media updates where we can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
We do the right thing by focusing on those most vulnerable in our communities and make a difference by ensuring that our targeted activity is evidence based to maximise ethical performance and results.
We collaborate by working together in partnership with other key agencies, key stakeholders and third-party sector organisations responsible for public safety and wellbeing, in order to reduce crime and disorder and the fear of crime and disorder.
This approach has led to development of 2 broad Tactical Section Priorities which are listed below.
If you report any issues to us it would be very helpful if they are clear, concise and as detailed as possible. Highlighting accurate times, locations and details helps us plan to have the right resources in the right location at the right time to ensure we give you the best possible service.
YOUR VOICE MATTERS
What do you think our priorities should be?
Let Us Know…
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. Please see the attached link which will take directly to our, (very quick) survey.

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: Bournemouth Central Police Station.
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.
