“Hello, we are Sergeant Guy Nicholas, PC Kevin Miller & PCSO Sam Venner.

“We can be seen patrolling the two universities' campuses on a regular basis. Please feel free to stop us for a chat. We also work very closely with our colleagues from the Winton, Charminster and Lansdowne Neighbourhood Policing Teams because they cover the areas where the majority of the town’s students live and spend their time.

“We have an office on campus. If you have any community safety concerns or would like to speak to one of us in person, come and see us in Talbot House.

“To find out more you can also visit the Dorset Police BCP web page, our Bournemouth Campus Police Facebook page also has regular updates, and you can also follow us on Twitter and Instagram.”

For more useful safety advice, go to the Live Life Safe website and the National Stalking Helpline. You can also find safety information in the Student Essentials section of our iBU mobile app
