Dorset is one of the safest counties in the UK in which to live. We are totally committed to working to make our county an even safer and better place in which to live, but we can't do it on our own. Throughout history policing has been most effective when the community and the police work together, helping each other to reduce crime and the fear of crime.
We have set our operational priorities which have been based on today's risks and from what our communities and the Police and Crime Commissioner have told us are areas of concern. Each year these priorities are reviewed and throughout the year we will work with the PCC to ensure the Force is focused on them.
The following priorities are at the heart of activity carried out by Dorset Police over the next four years.
