Peace of Mind for SFA Residents at RM Poole

CRESTResidents of the Royal Marines Poole Service Families Accommodation (SFA) are benefiting from the introduction of a No Cold Calling Zone.

MOD Community Police Officer, PC Andy Gale reports that residents were receiving cold calls mostly from utility companies; some residents were reporting their behviour as suspicious to Police. Andy said, “With partners deployed to theatre, this unwelcome intervention was deemed as a nuisance to residents and on occasions a security concern due to the questions that they would ask”.

With the additional closure of a pedestrian side access entrance/cut through there is no longer a reasonable excuse for someone to be within the service family area without good reason. This has reduced anti social behavior problems considerably from a neighbouring civilian estate.

  1. Well done to PC Gale, I only wish the MDP had a united approach to Policing the SFA’s nationwide. We don’t make our job easy by all doing our own thing.
