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 Team 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 (last reviewed May 2019):

  1. FRAUD - Telephone / Email Fraud and scams including calls claiming to be from legitimate companies (BT, Microsoft, The Police) asking for bank details ad remote access to computers leading to the risk of viruses, ransom wear and the loss of monies.
  2. ROGUE TRADING- With warmer weather we are seeing an increase in incidents involving Rogue Trading.
  3. ASB- Anti Social Behaviour around the Ferndown Area


Resolved priorities and actions taken:       

  1. ROGUE TRADING - We are distributing crime prevention information on Rogue Trading via Social Media, Dorset Alert, Home Watches and Parish Council notice boards. We are carrying out High Vis patrols across the area.
  2. FRAUD - Fraud leaflets, talks to local residents, crime prevention messages through social media and Dorset Alert Messaging Service (sign up at Dorset Alert.co.uk)
  3. BIKE SAFETY - NPT Patrols and Initiatives to promote safe cycling in the darker months including the provision of bike lights to riders found riding without lights. (Bike Lights kindly provided by our local Home Watch organisations)
  4. ASB- Anti Social Behaviour, targeted patrols to locations across the patch, working with partner agencies.
