Purbeck North is structured into two teams: Wareham Town & West and Wareham North & Upton, both led by Sergeant Paul Upshall. Purbeck is an area of outstanding natural beauty and we are very fortunate to work in such a fantastic location.
Wareham Town & West covers a large section of rural West Purbeck in addition to the Wareham Town area.
Wareham North & Upton covers Sandford, Holton Heath, Organford, Lytchett Minster, Lytchett Matravers, Upton, Morden, Bloxworth, Bere Regis, and Hyde. This is a mixture of rural villages and towns edging on to the greater conurbation area of Poole, also encompassing Wareham forest. The team consists of PC Harriet Doust, PC Matthew Saunders, PCSO Beth Grew, PCSO Dave Hamilton, PCSO Sarah Hart and PCSO Mike Gowans.

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: Wareham 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.
