Police Stations within Dorset

Officers and Staff operate from our stations 24 hours a day (or, are on duty in the area 24 hours a day).

Our planned opening hours for our Station Desk Offices are listed against each station below.  If you visit the station outside these hours and the Station Desk Office is unstaffed this normally will be because our officers and operational staff are out on patrol or are engaged in other operational duties.  Consequently, whenever the Station Desk Office is closed please make use of the telephone help point outside the station which will enable you to contact us to assist with your enquiry.  In an emergency always dial ‘999’.
