Your Dorset. Your Police. Your View
We have launched the second phase of our Your Dorset. Your Police. Your View survey.
This part of the survey seeks people’s views on how they would prefer to contact Dorset Police, as well as how they would prefer to learn more about the ongoing work being carried out by the Force.
Findings will be used to help the Force develop the way it communicates with the public, and anyone who lives, works in or visits the county is now being asked to spend a few minutes completing the survey.
The survey looks into which option members of the public would choose if they wanted to report a non-emergency matter to Dorset Police, and how they would expect to be treated if they had to make an emergency call to the Force.
It also asks people which methods they would prefer Dorset Police to use to provide information to the public, and what types of public engagement they regard as being the most important.
The first part of our survey looked into some of the more complex crimes that are often hidden from view, but sadly cause the most serious threats to our lives and target vulnerable members of our community.
It also touched on those organisations who we work alongside to tackle the most complicated elements of modern policing.
On this page you can find out more about these crimes and the specialist teams we work with, as well as more details about how to contact the Force.
Thank you for taking part in our survey. Listening to your views is important to Dorset Police and the information we receive from you over the next few weeks will help steer our future direction.
Chief Constable James Vaughan QPM, MSt (Cantab)
