Making our communities even safer

Safer BCP is your community safety partnership for the local area. We bring together the public bodies and the community, voluntary and private sector partners.

Our vision is to make the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole area a safer and healthier place where communities and businesses thrive and where residents and visitors feel safe and welcomed, by working together to increase safety in the community, to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour, and substance misuse and to manage those who commit offences to prevent them from reoffending.


Our mission is to provide a clear vision and leadership in improving safety for residents, businesses, and visitors. We will work to address crime and anti-social behaviour, using data, insight, and a combination of communication, engagement, prevention, early intervention, and enforcement, and will work closely with the community to provide support to victims, especially those who are vulnerable.

Our membership includes representatives from BCP Council, Dorset Police – BCP Local Policing Area, National Probation Service, Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group, Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Services, Dorset Combined Youth Justice Service, Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, and Community and Voluntary sector agencies.
