Wimborne & Colehill
Wimborne or Wimborne Minster (its official name) is a market town in East Dorset. The town has a population of approximately 6,790 and is situated at the confluence of the Rivers Stour and Allen.
Colehill is a similar size parish neighbouring Wimborne with a similar sized population, which is expanding as development in East Dorset increases in the area.
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.

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: Wimborne Police Station Hanham Road Wimborne BH21 1AS.
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.
