Dorset Police has a clear focus for our Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) resources based upon threat, risk, harm and vulnerability. The operational principles for Neighbourhood policing have been developed after listening to the people we serve and having learned from the most distressing incidents elsewhere in the country.

These Operational Principles are:

  • Prioritisation of the needs of the victim - putting the "Victim First"
  • Targeted and flexible deployment of officers based upon threat, risk, harm and vulnerability
  • Informed and focused community engagement and meetings

Your Neighbourhood Policing officers will ensure that, as a top priority, they look after the people in your communities who are the victims of crime and anti-social behaviour. We are ensuring that they, the victims, are listened to, understood, kept informed, protected and safe alongside the wider community.

Local priorities

Current Priorities: February 2018

  1. You said…You need to protect vulnerable adults from 'Cuckooing'

Cuckooing is a type of crime where criminals, usually drug dealers, befriend a vulnerable person living on their own. They then take over their home to deal drugs or engage in other criminal activities. Generally, the victim of cuckooing is vulnerable due to learning difficulties, mental health needs, disability or even drug use.

We are…We continue to actively targeted properties where we believe vulnerable residents were being cuckooed to ensure the welfare of any vulnerable residents and take appropriate action against any perpetrators.


Resolved priorities and actions taken

  1. You said... There has been an ongoing problem with anti-social behaviour and criminal damage around the Skate Park and Howecroft Community Centre.

We did... We conducted high visibility patrols in the area and trying to gather any further intelligence. We have also been engaging with youths in the area and explaining the consequences which may occur should they continue to cause criminal damage and anti-social behaviour in the area.
