North Bournemouth - East

Find your neighbourhood

North Bournemouth forms a large, complex and diverse geographical area with equally diverse demands.

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.

North Bournemouth (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 as well as Bournemouth University and the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB).

Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) based at Winton Police Station provide a regular and highly visible presence, tackling issues of concern and building relationships with the communities they serve.

We are committed to our vision of providing an outstanding service to the people of North Bournemouth and make it an even more safe and pleasant place in which to live, work or visit, for all sections of our community.

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 its reputation.

Our mission it to keep people safe and reassure the Community of North Bournemouth through high visibility patrols, regular meetings, face to face engagement and social media updates where we can be found on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

We do the right thing by focusing on those most vulnerable in our communities and make a difference by ensuring that our targeted activity is evidence based to maximise ethical performance and results.

We collaborate by working together in partnership with other key agencies, key stakeholders and third-party sector organisations responsible for public safety and wellbeing, in order to reduce crime and disorder and the fear of crime and disorder.

This approach has led to development of 2 broad Tactical Section Priorities which are listed below.

If you report any issues to us it would be very helpful if they are clear, concise and as detailed as possible. Highlighting accurate times, locations and details helps us plan to have the right resources in the right location at the right time to ensure we give you the best possible service.

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

With the current situation, we are focusing our efforts on high visibility patrols in key areas. We will be challenging people we come across in line with Government legislation along with supporting the most vulnerable within our communities. Please follow Government guidelines and advice from the NHS to help keep yourself and others safe

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

Tactical Section Priority 1: Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB):

Issue Date: 23/04/2021

 

ASB is consistently one of the top 2 priorities that communities believe local Police teams should prioritise.

It is a broad category that encompasses many types of behaviour. Those listed below are some of the most common that affect the communities of North Bournemouth:

Gatherings of adults at hot spot locations such as Winton and Charminster High Street engaged in street drinking, public urinating and defecating, low level disorder and offending such as Public Order Act offences, begging offences and breach of Covid regulation offences. 

Gatherings of youths at hot spot locations, playing loud music and subsequent offences occurring, such as public disorder, cannabis smoking, criminal damage, theft, littering and breach of Covid regulations. This has been particularly prevalent in areas such as Winton Rec, Muscliff and Howecroft.

Begging:  There continues to be an issue of begging in Winton and Charminster High Streets. Begging; particularly when persistent and/or aggressive can cause concerns to members of the public and retailers; adversely affecting businesses and potentially cause community tension with issues of ASB and breach of Covid regulations.

Vehicle related ASB:  Motorbikes and e-scooters have been reported causing noise nuisance and ASB at Castlepoint.

Action Date: 23/07/2021

Tactical Section Priority 2. Drug dealing and associated criminality:

Issue Date: 23/04/2021

Drug dealing is consistently one of the top 2 priorities that communities believe local Police teams should prioritise. There is significant public concern around the impact of drug dealing and the harm it causes to our communities who are often left feeling unsafe.

The impact of drug dealing and related criminality cannot be underestimated.  Such crime types are commonly associated with a broad range of acquisitive crime, violent crime, knife related crime and the carrying of weapons in general. 

County Lines targets some of the communities most vulnerable individuals especially children.  It features highly as a priority that communities believe Police teams should prioritise.

NPT will continue to develop their collaborative working relationship with the Climate Team to reduce vulnerability, gather information and intelligence, disrupt criminality and enforce legislation.
