Sherborne Town Safer Neighbourhood Team Police Local Neighbourhood

The Sherborne Town Safer Neighbourhood Team neighbourhood is situated within the town of Sherborne and is policed by the Dorset Police.

Dorchester and Sherborne section is comprised of Dorchester, Sherborne and their surrounding towns and villages. The section covers a vast 280 square miles (due to its predominantly rural geography) which constitutes a population of around 60,000 people.

The section covers a large area of Dorset's beautiful countryside and two very attractive towns in Dorchester and Sherborne. Dorchester is in fact the county town and both are steeped in history and culture inevitably making the area a tourism hotspot.

Dorchester and Sherborne section has an excellent policing team. The section is always driven to make the area even safer and we work hard to ensure that we deliver local policing as well as an effective response service. Every area in the section has a dedicated Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT), made up of police officers, PCSOs and special constables who are committed to improving their areas.

Police Officer Information for Sherborne Town Safer Neighbourhood Team

NameRankBio
Rachel Goodwin 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.

Glenn Day 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.

Olivia Galliver 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.

Neighbourhood Priorities for Sherborne Town 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.
