Weymouth and Portland
Weymouth and Portland is recognised as one of the most attractive areas in the country, and received international recognition by hosting the Olympic and Paralympic sailing events in the summer of 2012. The Weymouth and Portland Sailing Academy is the country’s premier sailing venue.
The area has much to offer, being part of the Jurassic Coast, and attracts thousands of visitors each year many of whom return time and time again, often staying in the towns popular hotels or at one of the campsites situated in the Borough.
Dorset Police in Weymouth operate from the building at Radipole Lane, near to the football ground, and have a dedicated office within the building shared with Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue service in Grove Road on Portland. The Patrol and Neighbourhood Policing Teams work in close partnership with other Agencies to continue to make improvements to the priorities that matter most to the public.
Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour have been falling over a number of years and the Policing team remain committed to providing the best service to the public during a period of challenging resources. The team remain victim focussed with a key priority to listen and engage with all aspects of the community via the most suitable methods including social media, face to face meetings, and attending relevant forums in order to better understand the current needs and support the most vulnerable.
We are committed to delivering the key force priorities in conjunction with local perspective, including:
- Reducing the number of victims of both crime and anti-social behaviour
- Reducing the number of people seriously harmed in Weymouth and Portland
- Helping to protect the public from serious threats (local, regional and national) to their safety including organised crime and terrorism
- Reducing Re-offending
- Increasing people’s satisfaction with policing in the area
- Supporting neighbourhood policing that is appropriate for the communities in Weymouth and Portland
I welcome any feedback and support that you can offer so that we can continue to make Weymouth and Portland a safe place to live, visit and work.
