Can you answer our call?

The Force Command Centre is at the front line of policing, providing that vital first point of contact between the public we serve in Dorset and operational Police Officers.

Last year, 401,000 calls were received from members of the public of which 73,000 were 999 emergencies. There is no ‘average’ call. Each caller is treated equally, and each situation is taken on its own merits. We are here for those that need us 24/7, 365 days per year dealing with both emergency and non-emergency calls.

We manage incidents, deploy police officers and record crime. Do you want to find out more? Then click the links below!
