Specialist Operations

This section of Dorset Police is comprised of a number of specialist departments and functions including Traffic Policing, Dog Section, Firearms Response and the Marine Section.

Specialist Operations serves communities across the whole of Dorset.

All of our teams within the section are committed to achieving the Force vision of a ‘Dorset that is and feels safe’ and we will help deliver this by achieving our primary aim of being ‘the best Specialist Operations section in the country’.

We strive to deliver an excellent, people-focused service that supports and works together with Safer Neighbourhood Teams and the wider Force in order to make Dorset feel safer for all the people living in, and visiting, the county.

Specialist Operations is specifically structured to deliver the highest professional service and is divided into key areas.
