Hi and welcome to Melcombe Regis Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) who cover Melcombe Regis and the Park District. 

We are a victim focussed team and work closely with partner agencies to help resolve the policing priorities of the local community.

To see our section priorities, please visit the Weymouth and Portland Homepage.

Please see below for our local priorities and actions taken towards them.

To meet us, see the local engagement events below or follow us on our local Facebook Page for the most up to date information.

Local priorities

(Last reviewed December 2019)

Street drinking, begging and homelessness are common themes reported to us. We conduct regular patrols in the area on foot, cycle and vehicles, interacting with and signposting those requiring assistance to services that can help them if needed. We also deal with any offences we may come across.

Our 100 Days of Summer campaign means that there are dedicated patrols within the town centre every day from the end of May until the beginning of September. For more information on the campaign, please click here.

Please contact us or come to an engagement event to tell us your concerns.

We did
We increased our patrols in the town and utilised Section 35 dispersal orders where appropriate. We are constantly working with the Council's ASB team and the parents of the young people causing the issues to help address the current situations and help work out long-term solutions to the problems.
