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.

Neighbourhood policing improves the quality of life within Dorset communities. Working together with partner agencies and problem-solving with local people and groups, we will target the policing issues that matter most in your area.

You can contact us via the Dorset Police website or social media, where we also promote upcoming meetings and events. We are based at: Poole Police Station.
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.
