Newtown & Branksome
The Newtown and Branksome area is located in the east of Poole and shares boundaries with Alderney, Canford Heath East, Oakdale, Parkstone and Westbourne areas. In the east of the ward are the industrial areas of Mannings Heath Industrial Estate and Newtown Business Park, as well as the Tower Park leisure complex. Ashley Road is the second largest local centre in Poole after the town centre. Ashley Road and the Redlands retail park run along the southern boundary and contain a large amount of large retail outlets with high footfall.
Officers are regularly patrolling this demographically diverse area on foot or by car and cycle and will always be more than happy to assist with any enquiries that you may have.

Neighbourhood Policing Team
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.
Get in touch with us today to raise any issues you have and to find out what priorities we are currently working on. This is your chance to influence the service that the police, and our partners, provide.
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 Joint Emergency Services Building Wimborne Road Poole BH15 2BP.
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.
