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.

Local Priorities

Bournemouth North East Top 5 Priorities

Issue Date: 18/03/2020

Drug related ASB -  We currently have been receiving a  number of calls around our younger community being involved in ASB and misuse of drugs in and around local parks. We are actively engaging with those reporting to highlight times and locations, we have already started to deploy plain clothes patrol to these areas to locate and deal effectively with those offending. 

 

We are unable to be everywhere all the time, so detailed times is very key for us to deploy our resources to the problem. One we have tried these patrols we then go into an overt role where you will see a uniformed presence, this is in conjunction with visits to local education establishments, highlighting the dangers of drugs and also the effects that ASB has on the wider community.

 

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.

 

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

 

Properties related to drugs – We currently work in partnership with our Council partners in tackling this issue. This will be associated to properties that cause a wider effect on the community as a whole. Examples such as frequent visitors at all times of day and night,  ASB coming from location which has an impact on those around and if a vulnerable person is potentially having their property be exploited by persons unknown (a term often referred to as cuckooing). As a partnership we would be looking at closure orders and tenancy reviews alongside other enforcement action.

 

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

 

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 partners BCP on this matter as there is 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.

 

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

 

Inquisitive crime thefts and breaks – Continue to deal with offenders caught for such crimes. Sadly we see only to often that opportunists prey on the those that forget to look cars or closes 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.
