Local officers get the thumbs up from residents

Police in the North Bournemouth area have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the public – during the Operation Doorstep initiative.

Operation Doorstep, which began on 1 January 2012, saw members of the public who came into contact with North Bournemouth police officers and Police Community Support Officers issued with a feedback form to assess the level of service they received.

The feedback form consisted of five questions relating to the level of service they received. Once completed, they were handed back to an officer, or returned freepost to the police station.

To date, 180 responses have been received – all with very positive comments about the officers in the North Bournemouth neighbourhood area and the service and support provided by the officers.

North Bournemouth Deputy Neighbourhood Inspector, Andy Edwards, said: “Our officers are committed to providing excellent levels of service to members of the public.

“Going out proactively to gauge feedback will help us to improve our service and make any improvements where necessary.

'The responses we have had back have been very positive. We are determined to maintain this good performance, and will take on board all feedback received, with a view to making improvements or changes if required.”
