BU's Neighbourhood Policing Team

We’re still here for you and you can contact us on 101 and The latest information from BU can be found in our Coronavirus FAQs.


The Neighbourhood Policing Team provides security and personal safety advice at BU and AUB.

"Hello we are Sergeant Gemma Barber, 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 Room T108, Talbot House, Talbot Campus. Alternatively you can ring us on 101 or email us at

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.

To find out more you can also visit the Dorset Police website, the Bournemouth Universities NPT Facebook page also has regular updates. 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.
