North Dorset Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team comprises of a team of 7 this includes; Sergeant James Francis, PC Phil Sugrue, PC Dave Mullins, PCSO Chris Mullens, PCSO Mandy Robinson, PCSO Vicky Biggs and PCSO Mike Sinnick.  The team supports an area over 200 square miles of beautiful countryside and villages around Shaftesbury, Gillingham, Blandford as well as the rural market town of Sturminster Newton and the villages  that surround it.

Statistically, North Dorset carries low crime and is a very safe place to live.  The team works closely with the Dorset Police Rural Crime Team to help detect and prevent rural crime and support the rural community.

As a team, we are very keen to engage with our rural community at every opportunity.
