POLICE have warned people their use of beach huts could be rescinded permanently if evidence is found of antisocial behaviour or “block parties”.

Officers from Poole Police will be continuing Operation Sandman this weekend.

A spokesperson said: “Poole Neighbourhood Policing Teams (NPT) Sergeant Williams popped to BCP's Multi Agency Centre (MAC) today to visit our extended colleagues in the Council's seafront team.

“Poole NPT will be running Operation Sandman over this coming weekend, and it was great to get an opportunity to share information between BCP and Police today in prep.

“We also got to check out their amazing HD CCTV set up, which covers the entire beach front from Hengistbury Head to Sandbanks.

“Operation Sandman is a Poole based multi-agency operation to prevent ASB and violence linked to large groups of young people on Poole beaches during summer evenings.

“Poole NPT along with multi agency seafront colleagues will be out on foot patrols in numbers this weekend from the Sandbanks peninsula to Branksome Chine.

“If you are under 18 and in possession of alcohol, it will be disposed of and information may be passed to your parents.

“If Beach Huts can be linked to ASB or 'block parties' information will be shared with our BCP partners who may rescind the use of that beach hut permanently.”
