to Bournemouth North Section
Bournemouth police area covers a large geographical area taking in
many different and diverse communities. It has a large area of
residential housing to the North and in general throughout the
area, two large Golf courses and parkland on the East and West,
with the almost continental feel of Charminster with it's cafes,
restaurants and night time entertainment to the South.
The ethos of policing in North Bournemouth is to make it an even
more safe and pleasant place in which to live, work or visit, for
all sections of our community.
With the introduction of Safer
Neighbourhood Teams they provide a regular and highly visible
on-street presence, tackling issues of concern and building
relationships with the communities they serve.

Crime levels within North
Bournemouth have decreased over the past three years. There
were 6,865 recorded crimes in 2010/11, 6,434 in 2011/12
and 5,792 in 2012/13 – a fall of 15%. This represents 1,073
fewer victims of crime than there were three years ago.
It is a very busy area to police
and North Bournemouth officers and staff, all based at Winton
Police Station, are fully committed to delivering the best service
possible. Anti-social behaviour is one of our main priorities and
this is being tackled in a number of ways such as high visibility
patrolling and carrying out interactive educational programmes with
partner agencies in secondary schools.
We recognise that the effect of crime and anti social behaviour
in North Bournemouth can have a big impact on people's quality of
life, the area's economy and reputation. Our challenge is to work
together in partnership with other key agencies responsible for
public safety and wellbeing, in order to to reduce crime and
disorder and the fear of such. In addition, we aim to reassure the
community of North Bournemouth through regular meetings and updates
organised and held by the various Safer Neighbourhood Teams that
operate throughout North Bournemouth.
