Southbourne Safer Neighbourhood Team Police Local Neighbourhood

The Southbourne Safer Neighbourhood Team neighbourhood is situated within the town of Bournemouth and is policed by the Dorset Police.

The majority of the section is residential. The community is very multicultural particularly, the western end of the section where the population has changed within this last decade and is far more mixed in terms of race and culture.

Our ethos of the section is high-profile, positive policing and a substantial part is by either foot or cycle, particularly in Boscombe West and Springbourne. The section runs a number of operations throughout the year to tackle issues such as drugs, anti-social behaviour and to improve road safety.

With the introduction of Safer Neighbourhood Teams they provide a regular and highly visible on-street presence, tackling issues of concern to the communities they serve.

Crime levels within East Bournemouth have decreased over the past three years – from 6161 offences in the year ending March 2005 to 5639 offences in the year ending March 2008, a fall of around 8.5 per cent. This represents 522 fewer victims of crime than there were three years ago.

The average yearly detection rate for all crime during the same period was 30 per cent.

For all of us the priorities remain the protection of life and property, maintaining the peace, the prevention and detection of crime and the arrest and prosecution of offenders.

Steve Federico PS

My role is Safer Neighbourhood Sergeant. I manage a team of PCs, PCSOs, special constables and volunteers in tackling issues that have an impact on the community as a whole. A typical day for me involves the looking after, directing and guiding those individuals I have in my charge.

It is important that I am aware of any incidents that occur on my patch, so that I can brief my team on what might be expected of them.

Iain Fryett PC

I work as a Police Constable for my local Safer Neighbourhood Team. My role is varied and typical duties relate to keeping the peace, law enforcement, protection of persons and property, and the investigation of crimes.

As an officer I am expected to respond to a variety of situations that may arise while they are on duty.

Annette Long PCSO

I am a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) and work as part of my local Safer Neighbourhood Team. It is extremely important that I am out and about in the community, talking to people about local issues.

PCSOs work to increase public confidence by reducing not only crime but also the fear of crime. We aim to deter anti-social behaviour and improve the physical appearance of towns and villages as well as to provide reassurance to the community. We are also a main point of contact between members of the public and the police.

Neighbourhood Priorities for Southbourne Safer Neighbourhood Team

IssueActionDates

Dorset is one of the safest counties in the UK in which to live. Dorset Police is one of the highest performing Police Services in the United Kingdom. We are totally committed to working to make our county an even safer and better place in which to live, but we can't do it on our own. Throughout history policing has been most effective when the community and the police work together, helping each other to reduce crime and the fear of crime.

We have set our operational priorities which have been based on today's risks and from our communities have told us are areas of concern. Each year these priorities are reviewed and throughout the year leaders work to ensure the force is focussed on them.

This year's operational priorities are to:

•Reduce serious violent crime.

•Reduce the crimes most affecting local communities.

•Protect vulnerable people and communities.

•Tackle serious and organised criminals.

•Counter terrorism and domestic extremism.

•Reduce road casualties.

•Bring offenders to justice.

•Secure the trust and confidence of people in Dorset in their Police Force and the wider criminal justice system.

•Be prepared for major incidents and events

Each Safer Neighbourhood Team will have their own local priority which are set by the community and regularly updated. Your local priorities can be found by visiting our web site at www.dorset.police.uk and entering your postcode into the "My Area" section.
