Strategic Alliance
Dorset Police and Devon & Cornwall Police formally agreed to go into a strategic alliance in March 2015, which means the two forces are working together in over 30 administrative and operational business areas.
Use of Force
From April 1, 2017, a new way of recording use of force became mandatory for all police forces, with officers required to fill out a form every time any type of force was used in the course of their duties. In line with police forces around the country, we are committed to releasing this data on a quarterly basis.
