Beaminster Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team Police Local Neighbourhood

The Bridport section covers the towns of Bridport, Lyme Regis & Beaminster, the large farming communities of West Dorset, and the world famous Jurassic Coastline.

The section is split into three Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNTs) who work directly to combat the issues raised by members of their local communities. To find out more about the teams and the work they are involved in, please access the SNT web pages via the link below.

The Bridport policing section consists of police officers, police community support officers, police staff, the Special Constabulary and police volunteers, all of whom are committed to providing the highest quality of service to the people who live, work and visit West Dorset. To support this work we have developed strong working relationships with our partners and other key agencies, which is helping to ensure that many issues affecting the people of West Dorset are being addressed and successful outcomes are being achieved through multi-agency working.

We are committed to reducing crime, bringing offenders to justice, and working to improve the quality of life for local people. Therefore we are always interested to hear from you, so please contact your SNT officers or contact Bridport Police Stations.

Neighbourhood Priorities for Beaminster Rural Safer Neighbourhood Team

IssueActionDates

Dorset is one of the safest counties in the UK in which to live. Dorset Police is one of the highest performing Police Services in the United Kingdom. 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 our communities have told us are areas of concern. Each year these priorities are reviewed and throughout the year leaders work to ensure the force is focussed on them.

This year's operational priorities are to:

•Reduce serious violent crime.

•Reduce the crimes most affecting local communities.

•Protect vulnerable people and communities.

•Tackle serious and organised criminals.

•Counter terrorism and domestic extremism.

•Reduce road casualties.

•Bring offenders to justice.

•Secure the trust and confidence of people in Dorset in their Police Force and the wider criminal justice system.

•Be prepared for major incidents and events

Each Safer Neighbourhood Team will have their own local priority which are set by the community and regularly updated. Your local priorities can be found by visiting our web site at www.dorset.police.uk and entering your postcode into the "My Area" section.
