Find your neighbourhood

Welcome to the Littlemoor Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) webpage. We conduct regular foot, cycle and vehicle patrols around the area so we are accessible to the people that live, work and visit the area.

Through our engagements we are a victim focused team and work closely with partner agencies to help resolve the policing priorities of the local community.  We work closely with the various housing associations who manage properties on the estate, as many of the complaints that we receive are best dealt with via a multi-agency response.

We conduct a variety of different engagement methods, including face-to-face meetings, social media interaction (Facebook & Twitter), online live chats and individual contact when required. Please do contact us with any issues or concerns that you have in the area and we will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.

We attend as many local events as we can to meet different people and provide updates on what the team have been focusing on and what issues are emerging, providing relevant crime prevention advice and reassurance. If you see us out on patrol, please stop and have a chat or ask any questions that you may have.

Local priorities

Current priorities (last reviewed August 2018):

  1. Off-road motorcycles.  Littlemoor NPT are working to tackle the issue of off-road motorcycles being ridden in the area of Lorton Meadows nature reserve, and on the estate itself.  Dorset Police are receiving many reports of this, and as such we are utilising various tactics to try to combat the issue.  These issues have now resumed in Spring 2018, so we are refreshing our approach to try to tackle these issues.


Resolved priorities and actions taken:       

  1. Off-road motorcycles - Littlemoor NPT in conjunction with Weymouth patrols officers have seized six motorcycles (as of 02/07/2018) for no insurance / no driving license.  We are working closely with the Big 4 Littlemoor group, who have established the Littlemoor Amateur Motocross Club, and take riders to a purpose built track near Clay Pigeon (A37) to practice their hobby - one of the conditions of inclusion in the club is not to ride motorcycles around the estate or on Lorton Meadows. Signage has been produced in conjunction with our partners from the Dorset Councils Partnership Community Safety Team and displayed at key locations.
  2. Scam calls - Through intensive publicising of the scams, advertising the various guises that criminals are using to try to trick victims into parting with personal information and money, and giving clear advice to not disclose personal information over the phone, we have managed to reduce the number of people falling victim to these scams and the number of reports coming into police regarding these calls.

Frequently Asked Questions

Complaints about parking should be referred to Dorset County Council.  Police only have the powers to enforce white zig-zag lines (generally in the area of pedestrian crossings), or physical obstructions (not visual obstructions).

The Weymouth and Portland dog warden is responsible for handling and kennelling stray dogs, promoting responsible ownership and enforcing bye-laws, and will accept reports of dog-on-dog attacks.  Dog fouling and stray/lost dogs can be reported to Weymouth and Portland Borough Council.

Dorset Police will accept and investigate reports of dog-on-human attacks.

Advice on dealing with noisy neighbours and noise complaints are the responsibility of the local authority.  Where appropriate, it may also be worth reporting these issues to the relevant housing association.
