Our Force covers a hugely diverse geographic area, from the dramatic cliffs of the Jurassic Coast to rolling hills inland. Although Dorset is predominantly rural, we also police Bournemouth & Poole, an urban area larger than most British cities, and many towns and villages. In addition Dorset is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, with millions of visitors coming every year to enjoy the spectacular scenery and sandy beaches.
This makes policing in Dorset a unique challenge but one that our staff rise to with courage and pride. I am very proud of the work they do and I hope you will choose to join us.
