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.

Poole NPT will be conducting Priority surveys with the communities of Poole when we hold engagement events, or attended in support of local authority or other local events.  These questionnaires are aimed at identifying the problems and concerns which matter the most to the community.  These will be targeted and through a process of Problem Oriented Policing and Problem Solving we will work towards solving the problem.  The top three issues raised by the community will be assessed quarterly and input below.

Local Priorities

Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)

Issue Date: 24/08/2020

Now we are all getting used to an idea of what the new 'normal' is we are seeing an increase in ASB across the Poole area. This includes issues related to drink and drugs. Poole NPT will be focusing on ASB by providing 'hot spot' policing regularly in the following areas specifically:

- Ashley Road / Alexandra Gardens

- Branksome Recreation Ground

- Hamworthy beach / Lake Pier

- Sandbanks beach

- Poole Town / Poole Quay

We will be regularly patrolling these areas every day and ask that if you have any information on specific times / days ASB is happening please contact us through the website on the 'Do It Online' page.

We are also able to ask our colleagues from different departments to help combat ASB and work closely with our partner agencies to provide a more personal approach to reducing ASB across Poole.

In an emergency

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.
