The Bridport section covers the towns of Bridport, Lyme Regis & Beaminster, the large farming communities of West Dorset, and the world famous Jurassic Coastline.
The section is split into three neighbourhood policing areas, with team members working directly to combat the issues raised by members of their local communities. To find out more about the teams and the work they are involved in, please access the NPT web pages via the links below.
The Bridport policing section consists of police officers, police community support officers, the Special Constabulary and police volunteers, all of whom are committed to providing the highest quality of service to the people who live, work and visit West Dorset. To support this work we have developed strong working relationships with our partners and other key agencies, which is helping to ensure that many issues affecting the people of West Dorset are being addressed and successful outcomes are being achieved through multi-agency working.
We are committed to reducing crime, bringing offenders to justice and working to improve the quality of life for local people. We are always interested to hear from you, so please contact your NPT officers or Bridport police stations.
Section Priorities (reviewed Feb '19)
- Operation Upkeep - Tackling organised drug supply in Bridport Town. We carry out regular safe and well checks on vulnerable members of the community and help to protect them from the risks that county lines drugs suppliers pose. The NPT actively follow up on any information linked to drugs activity in the town and will always safeguard victims of cuckooing.
- Anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Langmoor Gardens and Marine Parade, Lyme Regis. Due to reports of ASB in the area of the gardens the NPT and local response officers carry out regular patrols in the area and pro-actively deal with any concerns that they may encounter when on patrol. The NPT encourage the community to report incidents as they are happening so that we can respond to this and prevent any potential escalation.
- Anti-social behaviour in and around Beaminster Town Centre. Local officers carry out regular patrols of Beaminster Town and the surrounding areas and deal with any anti-social behaviour that they encounter. We encourage members of the community who witness or are victims of ASB to call Police at the time the incident is happening.
