Please note, if a crime is in progress or life is in danger, dial 999.
You can call both 999 and 101 from a landline or a mobile phone for free, even if you have no credit, and most smartphones allow you to make calls without unlocking the home screen.
If you're deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired you can use the emergency SMS/Text: 80999 or non-emergency SMS/Text: 67101 for off campus incidents. Please note: you'll need to register your mobile phone first to use this service.
The Bournemouth Campus Police provide security and personal safety advice at both BU and AUB campuses.
“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.
