Bournemouth North - West

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 its cafes, restaurants and night time entertainment to the south.

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.

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

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.

Local Priorities

Bournemouth North West Top 5 Priorities

Issue Date: 19/06/2020

Cuckooing and associated risks:

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. We are committed to tackling this important issue by continued home visits to our most vulnerable addresses to target and disrupt offenders, in a multi agency approach with BCP.



Vulnerability exists in many forms and Bournemouth North are proactive in dealing with vulnerability as a priority in conjunction with our partners. ASB from locations which have an impact on neighbours  is a priority especially if a vulnerable person is potentially having their property exploited by others. As a partnership we can look at closure orders and tenancy reviews alongside other enforcement action.


ASB drink and drug related:

We are aware of members of 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 and high visibility patrols to these areas to locate and deal effectively with those offending through a partnership approach. We are actively engaged with youth centres and the local police cadet scheme to try and signpost young people appropriately. 


ASB open spaces

Public spaces can often be linked to matters of ASB and we do see frequent concerns around criminal damage, noise nuisance, graffiti and other ASB in and around leisure facilities / open spaces. Where we can we have engaged with schools and young people to try and reduce the incidents but sadly sporadic and single events are often difficult to predict and prevent.  We will carry out investigations and look for opportunities to ID offenders through schools, social media, CCTV and other means. High visibility policing is an effective tactic also.


County lines:

‘County Lines' is a national issue which involves the exploitation of vulnerable persons; this can involve both young people and adults who require safeguarding. These vulnerable young people and adults are targeted by violent members of drug networks and gangs in order to move and sell drugs across the country. It is established 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. We are committed to tackling drug networks in the Bournemouth North area by using intelligence led Policing techniques to target and disrupt offenders.
