Community Safety

Tackling crime in Bournemouth

We work with local partners to tackle crime in Bournemouth. This is called the Community Safety Partnership. 

We work with the following groups:

  • Dorset Police
  • Dorset & Wiltshire Fire Service
  • Probation
  • Youth Offending Service
  • Housing associations
  • Local charities and community groups

The biggest crime-related problems we deal with in Bournemouth are: 

We’ve worked on the following projects to make Bournemouth safer: 

  • The Safe Bus – making night time safer by offering a safe place for lost or vulnerable people.
  • Maple Project – offering support to victims of domestic violence.
  • Independent Sexual Violence Advisors - offering support to victims of sexual violence.
  • Moveable CCTV cameras - cameras that can be moved to tackle anti-social behaviour.

We choose priorities through an annual Strategic Assessment. We have an annual Delivery Plan
