Purbeck North covers a large section of rural West Purbeck, the Wareham Town area, Sandford, Holton Heath, Organford, Lytchett Minster, Lytchett Matravers, Upton, Morden, Bloxworth, Bere Regis, and Hyde. This is a mixture of rural villages and towns edging on to the greater conurbation area of Poole, also encompassing Wareham forest.

***The team's current priority is keeping you safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, we will be patrolling locations where breaches to the recent legislation may be occurring or have occurred. Although we will continue some of our normal work, our priority has got to be working with you and our partners to save lives***

We regularly ask for your views on local policing and what you would like us to prioritise. The results from our February 2020 surveys indicate that your top priority is Anti-social behaviour, followed by Drugs and then Speeding. Please follow us on social media to see how we're addressing this.

The team consists of PC Harriet Doust, PCSO Beth Grew, PCSO Dave Hamilton, PCSO Sarah Hart and PCSO Mike Gowans.

The force responsible for policing and crime prevention in this area is Dorset Police.
