Safe and secure plans for the future of Poole

Bookmark and Share

Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill visited the board of directors at Poole BID in December to discuss a variety of initiatives that could be employed within the town and seek a potential security solution.

Poole town centre, like many other towns, struggles with aspects of anti-social behaviour. The Public Service Protection Order (PSPO) introduced by Borough of Poole in 2018 has helped to improve issues such as reducing persistent anti-social behaviour relating to street drinking, begging and drugs however it can only be applied to those over the age of 16.

Adam Keen, Poole BID Chairman, commented: “We had a very productive meeting with Martyn Underhill and have a selection of positive actions to take forward with Borough of Poole and Dorset Police.

“One of the projects, as outlined in the Poole BID business plan, is to ensure that the high street is safe and secure. It is our duty to listen to the feedback from our levy payers and voice their frustrations at the appropriate levels. We’re looking forward to keeping our levy payers updated as we reach developments in the plans that have been discussed.”
