Find your neighbourhood

Welcome to the Weymouth Neighbourhood Policing Team (NPT) page which covers the following ward areas: Chickerell Town, Littlemoor, Melcombe Regis (Town Centre), Nothe & Chapelhay, Radipole, Preston & Sutton Poyntz, Westham, and Wyke Regis.

Weymouth is a picturesque seaside town situated on the south coast of Dorset and has a population of around 60,000 which increases considerably during the summer months.

The NPT work alongside partner agencies and the local community to ensure Weymouth remains a safe place to live, work and visit. Working in partnership means we can tackle the issues that most affect local people and the NPT have 3 main thematic priorities across Weymouth, which are:

1) Disrupting ‘County Lines’ networks and criminal exploitation of vulnerable people
2) Maintaining a safe and vibrant night time economy
3) Reducing daytime Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB), especially in the Town Centre

Please see the Local Priorities section below for more specific and localised issues in your area that we are currently working on.

The NPT believe it’s vitally important that we are accessible to the communities we police. As such, we attend many local events and meetings where you can speak with us face-to-face, as well as regularly updating our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) and arranging individual contact when required.

To come and speak with us at a local event or meeting, please see the Get Involved section below for further details. You can follow us on our local social media accounts by using the relevant links on the right hand side of this page.

If you need to report something or wish to speak to a local officer directly, you can visit the “Contact Us / Do It Online” section of the main Dorset website. For those who are unable to use the internet, you can still call 101 for non-emergencies and 999 should always be called for an emergency where a crime is in progress or life is in danger.

*Complete the Survey here*

As your local Neighbourhood Policing Team we are continuing to police toward our local priorities and targets, despite the current situation. We would normally be holding face to face engagements with our communities to help us build a better picture around what our local policing priorities should be. We are keen to continue harnessing your community concerns to achieve this. Therefore we have created this quick online survey to help us make an informed decision around our NPT local priorities. Please see the above link which will take directly to our, (very short) survey.

Local Priorities

ASB on The Esplanade

Issue Date: 01/05/2019

ASB on The Esplanade from rough sleepers, street drinkers and drug users

Action Date: 30/09/2020

UPDATE JULY 2020

We are once again running our 100 Days of Summer initiative and it is well under way for this year. Individuals coming to notice repeatedly for anti-social behaviour are being issued with Community Protection Notice Warnings (CPNW). If these are breached, the notice can be taken up a step to a full Community Protection Notice (CPN) whereby the individual is arrestable if they breach. Failure to comply with the CPN can lead to a Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) where breaches can carry a custodial sentence. We are following these processes with a number of people in the Town. We are also making use of Section 35 dispersal notice powers.

UPDATE DEC 2019

We have worked with our partner agencies to ensure that during the winter months, those who need somewhere to shelter have access to the safe sleep scheme. We have also offered advice on how to access housing support for the long term.

UPDATE SEP 2019

We started our 100 Days of Summer initiative which saw us putting dedicated high visibility foot patrols every day for 100 days throughout June, July and August to tackle the issues around the town centre. We targeted our known hot spots and used our Section 35 Dispersal powers to move on persistent offenders. We also worked with the Council’s Community Safety Team to gain orders against certain individuals which mean we can now deal with them more robustly should they continue to come to our notice.

ACTIONS WE ARE TAKING

Increasing patrols
Issuing of dispersal orders
Signposting to partner agencies
Robust action when required

ASB from large groups of youths

Issue Date: 01/02/2020

Anti-social behaviour in the areas of the Marsh (swimming pool, play park and bowls club) along with Willowbed Hall, Town Centre and Pleasure Pier.

Large groups are congregating in these areas and we are receiving reports of drug taking and dealing, underage drinking, general anti-social behaviour and, in the case of the Pleasure Pier, dangerous pier jumping into the Harbour.

Action Date: 30/09/2020

UPDATE JULY 2020

Within our 100 Days of Summer patrols, we are including the area around the Pleasure Pier along with the Town Centre. Details of youths found jumping in the water are being taken and appropriate action is being taken in conjunction with the Harbour Master and Dorset Council.

ACTIONS WE ARE TAKING

Increasing patrols
