This section highlights key issues around community safety, anti-social behaviour, domestic abuse and crime in Bournemouth. These form part of the Bournemouth’s Strategic Assessment.  The role of community engagement, community development and empowerment of local communities is also crucial in creating safe and cohesive local communities.

In Bournemouth 35 of the Borough's lower layer super output areas are identified within the most deprived quintile in England in the 2015 Index of Multiple Deprivation Crime and Disorder domain.

The priorities are identified through an annual Strategic Assessment.  The 2016/17 delivery plan outlines the latest priorities.
