Dorset Police Support Sexual Offences Week


8:04am 4th December 2013
(Updated 4:48pm 4th December 2013)

Dorset Police has joined a national campaign in an attempt to help more victims of sexual assaults.

The "In Focus" campaign highlights how Police deal with rape and sexual offences so people know how the process works.

The Force says "significant improvements" have been made in the way they handle reports of sex crimes. This has included specialist training of officers, the introduction of early evidence kits, greater access to sexual assault referral centres, and increased partnership working with support groups.

Inspector Pete Little said: "Dorset Police remains committed to the investigation of rape and other serious sexual offences. These offences are always treated as a priority and, by working together with professionals from other sectors, we aim to provide seamless healthcare for victims of sexual crime; integrating social care and criminal justice service."
