Parkstone, Penn Hill and Canford Cliffs Safer Neighbourhood Team Police Local Neighbourhood

Poole is a town with a mix of tourism and industry. It has the largest natural harbour in Europe. Brownsea Island is one of the few sites where red squirrels survive. The beaches have won nineteen Blue Flag awards and two Premier Seaside Awards. Its heathland is a site of special scientific interest.

The town is home to the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Poole Pirates Speedway team, and Sunseeker the luxury motor yacht constructor. The Merck Group – the world's leading manufacturer of liquid crystals found in computers, watches and TV sets, has a centre for excellence in Poole. The RNLI also has its national headquarters in Poole and operates a fleet of lifeboats from there.

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 Poole South have decreased over the past three years – from 7420 offences in the year ending March 2005 to 6613 offences in the year ending March 2008, a fall of around 10.8 per cent. This represents 807 fewer victims of crime than there were three years ago.

The average yearly detection rate for all crime during the same period was 24 per cent.

The police at Poole South are committed to reducing crime and the opportunity for crime as well as reducing anti-social behaviour. The policing takes place on many fronts: community policing, response, operations, partnership and investigations.

PCSOs work to increase public confidence by reducing not only crime but also the fear of crime.

We are also a main point of contact between members of the public and the police.

Neighbourhood Priorities for Parkstone, Penn Hill and Canford Cliffs 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.
