What is Neighbourhood Policing?

Neighbourhood Policing

Neighbourhood policing  is a commitment by community service providers to improving the quality of life in our communities by working together to target the issues identified by local people as those that matter most.

Neighbourhood policing is about providing our communities with:

  • ACCESS to local policing teams and their community safety partners – local councils, health, housing, fire and rescue, youth organisations and probation - through a named point of contact.
  • INFLUENCE for local people over how community safety services are delivered in their area and what the local priorities are.
  • INTERVENTIONS by community safety partners and the community working together to tackle those priorities.
  • ANSWERS - sustainable solutions to problems and feedback on what has been done.

 

Neighbourhood Policing Teams

Neighbourhood Policing Team are a commitment by Dorset Police to improving the quality of life within our communities by working together with partners to target the issues identified by you - local people - as those that matter most.

There are a number of opportunities that the Neighbourhood Policing Team in your area will provide, on an ongoing basis, for you to voice your concerns. Get in touch with your team today to find out how you can raise your issues.

This is your chance to influence the service that we, the police, and our partners, provide. Your opinions are important to us and this process will not work without you.
