Poole - North
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 specific areas and consist of police officers, PCSOs and volunteers, working in close partnership with other agencies and the local communities to tackle issues and secure long term solutions.
This approach has proven its value and crime levels within Poole North have decreased over the past several years. Through the hard work of the local teams, we have not had any significant rise in crime and the crime figures for 2015/16 remain under 4000.
We will continue to build upon these successes and will never tire in our work to drive down crime and anti-social behaviour. We will support our communities but will deal robustly with offenders.
The NPTs are always interested to hear from members of the public and I would encourage you to contact them to discuss any issues that concern you.
