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.

Award Winning Panel
The North Bournemouth Crime Prevention Panel (NBCPP) was awarded THE DORSET POLICE CRIME REDUCTION PARTNER AWARD In FEBRUARY 2020.
The DPCC presented the trophy which was received by Paul Payne (Chair), Inspector Paul Graham & Deirdre Redstone Coordinator on behalf of all the amazing members of NBCPP.
East Howe Church Yard
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.
