Poole South

Find your neighbourhood

Poole is a town with a mix of tourism and industry. It has the largest natural harbour in Europe, Brownsea Island is one of the few sites where red squirrels survive, the beaches have won nineteen Blue Flag awards and two Premier Seaside Awards and its heathland is a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

The town is home to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Poole Pirates Speedway team and Sunseeker, the luxury motor yacht constructor. The Merck Group, the world's leading manufacturer of liquid crystals found in computers, watches and TV sets, has a centre for excellence in Poole. The RNLI also has its national headquarters in Poole and operates a fleet of lifeboats from there.

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: 27/05/2021

Poole NPT are working with the other BCP NPT areas and the local authority on ‘Summer Live’ a multi-agency response to ASb and crime related to the beaches and other identified locations such as Poole Quay for the fireworks, heathland spaces where there is persistent ASB and fire risk as well as other local areas.  We will be focusing on ASB by providing 'hot spot' policing across Poole regularly in the following areas but with the capability to target others areas where there is demand:

 

- 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.  Please be assured that ASB is declining across Poole but we will continue to target and deal with any person causing anti-social behaviour across Poole jointly with the council to ensure our communities feel safer. 

 

Some of the issues we have dealt with in the last quarter include targeting the anti-social use of vehicles in Sandbanks; supporting the council to deliver additional CSAS staff to Ashley Road and the Town; supporting the town centre with patrols and working with the BID and our Design Out Crime Officers to make the town centre safer.  We have also started to target ASB nominals through a series of continuing operations in the town, Ashley Road and Sandbanks.     

Action Date: 01/07/2021

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 & County Lines

Issue Date: 27/05/2021

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; assisting our specialist teams with warrants to target those dealing drugs and working with the Safer Schools teams to deliver advice and support in schools on this issue.  We have dedicated operations running every month to target drug dealers and users as well as good links with local services supporting adults and young people who want support out of addiction.  We will also work with St Mungo’s to support the street homeless community who are also vulnerable to substance abuse and targeting by dealers. 

 

County Lines continues to be a national problem and we work within the new definition to target local groups involved in the exploitation of vulnerable and young people through drugs and violence.  Please follow this link if you are concerned about any person you know who you fear may be involved in county lines - https://www.dorset.police.uk/help-advice-crime-prevention/safety-in-your-community/county-lines/

Action Date: 01/07/2021

Burglary

Issue Date: 27/05/2021

Being burgled can have a significant impact on your sense of safety by leaving you feeling vulnerable in your own home.

 

Tackling burglary can have a wider impact because individuals who commit burglaries are often responsible for other crimes in our neighbourhoods; or are stealing to fund their substance addictions. 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.
