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.

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.

Neighbourhood policing improves the quality of life within Dorset communities. Working together with partner agencies and problem-solving with local people and groups, we will target the policing issues that matter most in your area.

Get in touch with us today to raise any issues you have and to find out what priorities we are currently working on. This is your chance to influence the service that the police, and our partners, provide.
