New Rossmore Snt Office Opens In Poole

A new office has opened for the Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT) in Rossmore, Poole, thanks to partnership working with the local community and borough council.

A coffee morning marked the opening of the new offices on Thursday 17 October. The office is based within the Everyone Active Leisure Centre in Rossmore.

Among those present at the official opening were representatives from Dorset Police, the Safer Poole Partnership, Neighbourhood Watch Groups, Residents’ Associations and the Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset.

The office will be used as a base by the Safer Neighbourhood Teams that cover the areas of Rossmore, Alderney, Newtown and Branksome.

Poole North Neighbourhood Inspector, Ian Roe, said: “I am delighted that the new Safer Neighbourhood Team office is now open for our officers.

“This facility places the officers in the heart of the communities they serve and will ensure they can continue to work hard to reduce crime, anti-social behaviour and provide a visible presence.

“I would also like to thank the community and our partners for the significant help and support we have received which has been a key factor in making this office a reality.”

Councillor Judy Butt, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Public Engagement and Participation and Chair of the Safer Poole Partnership Board, said: “I am delighted that the Safer Poole Partnership is supporting this really positive development. The residents will benefit enormously by having these teams at the centre of their neighbourhoods once again.

“We are fully behind the Safer Neighbourhoods process in Poole and along with many other organisations and local residents we are absolutely committed to ensuring that these highly valued officers are best placed to serve their communities.”

Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner, Martyn Underhill said: “I am delighted with the new office for Rossmore. I want to see effective policing operating in the heart of communities. This new office will increase officer visibility and will improve accessibility to the public.”

Members of the public are reminded that opening times for Poole Police Station, on Wimborne Road, are Monday to Friday 8am – 6pm.
