LOCAL NEWS: Dorset police need your help to shape the county’s policing in the future.


Police are asking for public opinion on where resources should be allocated as part of the second phase of their campaign, ‘Your Dorset. Your Police. Your View’.

Local people can take part online by using a simple slider tool on the police website. The will show the potential impact that increasing, or decreasing, resources in any one area could have on the service provided across Dorset.

The first phase, released in October, asked people to make decisions about the resourcing of police priorities in Dorset. A similar investigation took place four years ago, with the finding making key contributions to the state of the force now. 

Chief Constable James Vaughan said: “The first phase of Your Dorset. Your Police. Your View, had an excellent response and I’d like to thank all those who took part.

“With the start of phase two, we are giving the public a chance to decide on two different areas that cover topics like 999 demand or protecting vulnerable people. We hope that the response will be as positive as phase one.

“We want to give the public the opportunity to learn more about the challenges and complexities of modern policing. We also want to know what is most important to you – so you can tell us how Dorset Police can continue to best meet your needs and keep you safe in the future.”
