Current Crime Prevention Projects

Neighbourhood Watch award for Coordinator of the year

Time of your life project

University students NBCPP/NW. Each chapter they type is emailed off and edited/researched for them and sent back with suggestions and ideas and in no time with encouragement, a really good publishable book appears.  So far 12 books and booklets have been printed. (Project on hold at present until we deal with the back log).

Burglary Reduction Action Group (Brag)

NBCPP Working with NPTs, University accommodation, Landlords Association, Fire officers to raise awareness of the importance of securing your home HMO or student accommodation against burglary.

Is Your Number UP?

Partnership project with Redhill Fire Station, BCP NHS, NPTS, NBCPP, Neighbourhood Watch, Utilities, Support is widespread from all organisations that visit properties from Posties, taxi drivers and religious leaders i.e. vicars. It is a legal requirement to mark all properties including business premises with a relevant number & to renew them when they become obliterated or defaced. Emergency Services often waste valuable time searching for an address.  In the case of fire or when an ambulance is needed, it can be a matter of life or death. When a property has no number visible from the road the householder will be required to make sure it is replaced, but in the case of an older or vulnerable householder NBCPP/NWwill fit and replace it free. A supply of temporary reflective numbers are held to be given out when a property or business needs to either put a new number up or replace it.

Evaluation – Great success with thousands of household properties all over Bournemouth but still have a great deal of work to make sure the business community display street number, as often there is just a name display board. BCP Street numbering department Tel. 01202 251360

Dynamic CCTV

The North Bournemouth Crime Prevention Panel (NBCPP) has secured funding to provide a mobile CCTV camera from the Office of the Dorset Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) for deployment in the North Bournemouth area to tackle anti-social behaviour.

The funded project is a twelve-month partnership initiative involving the Police, BCP Council, Local Community Representatives, the NBCPP and local business. The project seeks to identify anti-social behaviour areas and deploy a temporary CCTV camera to deter and detect offending.

NBCPP have been advising residents on what action to take if they encounter an unwanted caller, they hope to protect residents from crimes.. Packs advise residents in the zones to close the door on any uninvited callers and phone trading standards straight away. However, all residents, whether living in a No Cold Calling Zone or not, are advised to make sure that all windows and rear doors are locked before opening the front door to an uninvited caller, and to use a bar or chain on the door if there is one. Residents are also advised to ask the caller for identification and verify their identity by phoning the company they claim to work for, using a number found in a phone book or on a recent bill, as the number given on the card may be false.

The Community took back control following vandalism and fly tipping:

Cllr Dennis Gritt, Alan Keeping, Ted Taylor and Deirdre Redstone went down to see the East Howe Graveyard after it was reported at a Panel meeting that a portaloo had been put in the middle of a grave! Dennis dealt with the matter and it was removed.  It was immediately obvious, as we looked around, that the churchyard was a hidden little historical gem which was being used as a haven for drinking and drugs and a dumping ground for household rubbish.
