Transparency of Expenditure Over £500

Dorset Police is a publically funded organisation and this page presents the financial records of all our expenditure over £500 for public scrutiny. It demonstrates appropriate openness and transparency in our use of public funds to deliver a policing service to the people of Dorset.  

The details provided are for all payments made which are over £500 (including VAT), showing who we paid, how much we paid, and what this was for. This includes:

  • all items purchased; 
  • payments made to contractors carrying out work on our behalf; and 
  • other spending incurred in the course of our business.

The information detailing the preceding month's spending over £500 will be published no later than 30 days after the month ends.

We aim to be as transparent as we can but in some cases information identified as being commercially or operationally sensitive, or which relates to individuals, has been redacted.
