Welcome to the Weymouth and Portland
Weymouth & Portland is recognised as one of the
most attractive areas in the country, and received international
recognition by hosting the Olympic and Paralympic sailing events in
the summer of 2012. The Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy is
the country’s premier sailing venue.
The area has been a traditional summer holiday
resort since King George III came to Weymouth in 1789 and the
large white horse carved into the hills on the edge of Weymouth
remind residents and tourists of this.
The area has much to offer residents and
visitors alike, being part of the Jurassic Coast, the scenery
attracts visitors back time and time again, many staying in the
towns popular hotels or at one of the campsites situated in the
Dorset Police in Weymouth operate from the
building at Radipole Lane, near to the football ground, with Patrol
and Safer Neighborhood Teams working together with other Agencies
to make the area even safer than it already is.
Crime and Anti Social Behaviour has been
falling over a number of years and with diminishing resources
available, the challenge will be to continue this downward
The key priority of the team at Weymouth and
Portland is to find long term solutions to problems of Anti Social
Behaviour and the aim of the team is to improve the quality of
people’s lives within our community.
Officers follow a victim focused approach
which is designed to support the needs of the victim putting them
at the heart of everything that we do. Alongside this officers are
proactive in targeting offenders .
We will be working with all our partners to
enhance the Town Centre, in order to improve the quality of its
family orientated facilities
