Find your neighbourhood

Welcome to the Radipole Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) who cover Radipole, Preston and Sutton Poyntz. We conduct regular patrols on foot, cycles and in vehicles 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 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. Anti-social behaviour (ASB).
  2. Scam calls. The general community in Weymouth are receiving a substantial amount of scam calls. The intention is to obtain bank details and pin numbers. The scams are varied but the main theme is to panic the person into believing their bank account has been compromised, the caller then assumes the role of “helper” in order to gain the bank details.
  3. Road safety issues around local schools.

Resolved priorities and actions taken:       

  1. We continue to patrol the parks at various times of the day and evening. We are engaging with any groups we encounter and address any inappropriate behaviour. Please continue to report any criminal damage or ASB via the 101/999 system.
  2. At local level, we are educating and informing residents where and when we have any engagements. We have visited various groups that meet on our areas to make as many people as possible aware. The message is getting out but we do ask for residents to check on their more vulnerable elderly friends and family.
  3. We are patrolling the appropriate locations at appropriate times when possible (depending on operational commitments).  The Dorchester Road and Littlemoor Road areas are a priority for the team. We offer suitable advice whilst conducting patrols and deal accordingly with any issues or offences that are discovered.
