Local priorities

Current priorities - JULY 2019

VULNERABLE TEENAGE MISSING PERSONS  -  we will help locate and support them, alongside other partner agencies, when they are in crisis.

THEFTS FROM FARMS AND FARM MACHINERY INCLUDING TRACTOR GPS SYSTEMS - there has been a spate of thefts from farms and in particular tractor GPS systems have been targeted. We will visit farms and contractors to offer them crime prevention advice. We will also  send out messages to the local communities via social media and Dorset Alert.

BEAUTY SPOT THEFTS   -  breaks to vehicles at beauty spots. There are increased thefts from vehicles at Beauty Spots over the summer months due to valuables ie handbags, wallets along with other items of value being left in vehicles whilst the occupants are enjoying the countryside. We will check signage is in place and replace as required to act as reminders. We will engage with visitors and dog walkers offering advice on removing valuables from vehicles
