Poole North

Find your neighbourhood

Poole North is a diverse area that includes large residential areas, places of public entertainment, schools, shopping areas, industrial estates and retail parks, alongside heathland areas that are designated Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

The policing of the area is strongly focused on reducing crime and anti-social behaviour to improve the quality of life for everyone who lives in or visits the area for work or recreation.

Our patrol officers provide a resilient, effective 24 hour policing capability responding to the wide range of incidents and emergencies that can occur in the area. These officers work closely with our Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPTs) to provide an effective policing service that recognises and responds to the priorities of the community and yet is available to deal with the full spectrum of services required from the police.

The NPTs are dedicated to tackle priority crime and Anti Social Behaviour areas and consist of police officers, PCSOs and volunteers led by two dedicated Sergeants all working in close partnership with other agencies and the local communities to tackle issues and secure long term solutions.

Local Priorities

Anti- Social Behaviour

Issue Date: 27/01/2020

ASB is not stereotyped to kids on bikes on pavements, graffiti or noise but has some serious links to organised crime for some young people and is affecting residents, traders and the vulnerable at these locations.  We also have an on-going focus across Poole on Criminal Exploitation which includes Child Sexual Exploitation and Child Exploitation (which is the carrying of drugs and weapons) and County Lines Drug Dealing including exploiting the home address of vulnerable people known as cuckooing.

Action Date: 28/02/2020

Poole as a section has seen a decline in ASB across the area. We have engaged partners and have sought funding for a 'Pop Up' Youth Centre which is deployed around the area to engage local youths and reduce the impact of behaviours on communities.  We have also increased the presence in Broadstone through the deployment of PCSIs from the Broadstone office to give greater uniform visibility in the community.

Street Drinking

Issue Date: 27/01/2020

Street drinking leading to an increase in crime, vagrancy and begging which impacts residents and businesses. Increased street patrols have been requested.

Action Date: 28/02/2020

Further police presence provided for the Ashley Road area to deter crime and support residents, shoppers and local businesses. We have run days of action with specialist units and work closely with the licensing team to reduce the availability of high strength alcohol.  Paul Cleal is the dedicated PC for Ashley Road so please make him aware of any issues.
