Bridport Town 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.

Police Officer Information for Bridport Town Safer Neighbourhood Team

NameRankBio
Scott McGregor PC

I work as a Police Constable for my local Safer Neighbourhood Team. My role is varied and typical duties relate to keeping the peace, law enforcement, protection of persons and property, and the investigation of crimes.

As an officer I am expected to respond to a variety of situations that may arise while they are on duty.

Peter Smith PCSO

I am a Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) and work as part of my local Safer Neighbourhood Team. It is extremely important that I am out and about in the community, talking to people about local issues.

PCSOs work to increase public confidence by reducing not only crime but also the fear of crime. We aim to deter anti-social behaviour and improve the physical appearance of towns and villages as well as to provide reassurance to the community. We are also a main point of contact between members of the public and the police

Geraint Butler PS

My role is Safer Neighbourhood Sergeant. I manage a team of PCs, PCSOs, special constables and volunteers in tackling issues that have an impact on the community as a whole. A typical day for me involves the looking after, directing and guiding those individuals I have in my charge.

It is important that I am aware of any incidents that occur on my patch, so that I can brief my team on what might be expected of them.
