Find your neighbourhood

Wareham North and Upton NPT area 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 encompasses PCSOs Phil Murray, Mike Gowans, PC Jon Stuart and is led by Sgt Barry Gosling. We deal with a wide variety of incidents, which range from poaching and the rural types of crime, to attending shed and garage breaks, dealing with neighbour complaints and anti-social behavior. We also carry out a large number of crime prevention and reassurance visits and work very closely with partner agencies on all types of matters.
