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.

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 policing 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 informed decision around our NPT local priorities. Please see the above link which will take directly to our, (very short) survey.

Local Priorities

Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)

Issue Date: 14/10/2020

Anti-social behaviour (ASB)

Poole NPT will be focusing on ASB by providing 'hot spot' policing regularly in the following areas specifically:

- Ashley Road / Alexandra Park

- 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.

Action Date: 08/01/2021

Our last quarterly priority survey identified that anti-social behaviour was Poole residents top priority, therefore we continue to focus on Anti-social behaviour across Poole. Regular patrols of hotspot areas have been carried out and reductions have been seen in certain areas. 

We have worked closely with ASDA in regards to issues with ASB in their car park and this will be ongoing.

Patrols of Poole Town, Quay and bus station by police and CSAS officers over the past months are seeing a reduction in incidents.

New posters are being put up in our hotspot areas encouraging members of the public to report ASB using the QR that takes them straight to our ASB reporting page.

Drugs issues

Issue Date: 08/01/2021

Drugs and County lines issues have been raised as a local priority. 

Substance abuse can be linked to crime and ASB, and therefore causes harm not only to the individual but also to the wider community. We will work with our partners to identify how we can best tackle drug and alcohol misuse; reviewing and learning from our experience; work with the CLIMATE team for Dorset who work with the vulnerable members of the community to tackle local issues and support intervention programmes, so we can work effectively to lessen the effects of substance abuse in our communities.  54% of respondents to the Neighbourhood Policing Priority Survey felt that drugs should be a priority.

Action Date: 01/04/2021

Burglary

Issue Date: 08/01/2021

Burglary was our top 3 priority identified by the public.

Being burgled can have a significant impact on your sense of safety by leaving you feeling vulnerable in your own home. 50% of respondents to the Neighbourhood Policing Priority Survey felt that burglary should be a priority. Tackling burglary can have a wider impact because individuals who commit burglaries are often responsible for other crimes in our neighbourhoods. We can lessen the likelihood of becoming a victim by taking simple crime prevention measures at home. Poole NPT will continue to promote prevention through the police and local partners, and support the strategy to reduce offending through targeted patrols and action against priority offenders.  However be reassured that burglary is continuing to reduce year to date and this is a trend we will aim to continue.
