Poole Town & Oakdale
The Poole Town area consists of a highly populated town centre area with numerous commercial properties at its core. The Dolphin Shopping Centre is Poole's main retail area, and the largest indoor shopping centre in Dorset, the centre itself provides 110 stores and two large multi-storey car parks . A pedestrianised high street containing shops, bars, public houses and restaurants connects the Dolphin Centre with the historic Old Town area and Poole Quay, a renowned visitor attraction with an active and diverse night time economy.
Tourism is key component to Poole's economy. Poole Quay, Poole Pottery and the beaches are some of the main attractions for visitors. Tourist accommodation consists of hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfast rooms located around the town that cater for the often transient population throughout the summer.

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.
