1. Theft from motor vehicles.

Recent spate of thefts from motor vehicles in the area around Branksome Park and Canford Cliffs.
The majority are insecure vehicles being targeted by opportunists.  Many modern vehicles indicate when they are locked as the wing mirrors fold in; its a dead giveaway and doesn't require much effort by the thief so don't make it easy for them.
Please remember to secure your vehicle and remove any valuables, sat navs or loose change to reduce opportunities for thieves. 

2. Burglary

We have seen a rise in dwelling burglaries - notably to garages where the main focus of the theft would seem to be tools or high value bikes.  Poole police are happy to offer advice with bike or tool marking to help reduce the risk of these crimes and to aid our recovery of items back to their owners.  If you would like more information please feel free to contact your NPT or speak to your NHW co-ordinators.
Your local beat team are working hard to tackle these issues and we will provide updates on the new ‘You Said We Did’ section below.
If you have any local community concerns you would like the team to look at please contact us and let us know. We will review them all and consider them for priorities in the future.
Working together we can make the area safer and feel safer.
