LOCAL NEWS: Join the 2,700 having their say on anti-social behaviour in Dorset in new survey


A county-wide survey has been launched by Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner Martyn Underhill to find out what residents think about anti-social behaviour across Dorset. 

The survey was launched last month, with the intention of revealing how much of a problem residents feel anti-social behaviour presents and whether they feel it has improved or worsened in recent years. It also asks whether people are aware of who they should report incidents to, as the police are not the only authority able to handle these concerns. In some cases, local authorities and housing associations are able to offer help.

Talking about the survey, Martyn Underhill said: “We know that anti social behaviour can have a devastating effect on people and on neighbourhoods, but it’s really important we get a much more detailed understanding of the problem in Dorset.

“The information we get from this survey will be used to devise future strategies to help tackle the problem, so it’s essential as many people as possible complete it. Please have your say now!

Make sure your voice is heard; complete the survey before Friday 28 August 2020 to share your opinions.
