Dorset Police Learn How To Fight Crime

Dorset Police Arrest Finger Prints

7:04am 23rd March 2014

Dorset Police is going back to university in their fight against crime.

The service will be working with criminology specialists and academics to look at what tactics they can use against criminals.

Sergeant Justine Elliott is now the Evidence Based Policing Champion for Dorset.

He'll be carrying out trials in Dorset to see which crime prevention measures are most effective.

Director of Public Protection, Detective Superintendent Chris Naughton said: "Dorset Police is working with the College of Policing's academic consortium in supporting the What Works Centre.

"This is an important initiative which could change the ways in which policing is delivered across England and Wales.

"This funding will strengthen academic and police partnerships across the country.

"It has the potential to place Dorset Police at the forefront of evidence based policing."

Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner, Martyn Underhill said: "I welcome Sergeant Justin Elliott's appointment as the Evidence Based Policing Champion for Dorset.

"With a shrinking budget and workforce, the Chief Constable and I are determined that Dorset Police invests its energy and processes in approaches that work.

"Evidence Based Policing is at the core of policing and reassures the public that the police are directing their efforts into work that prevents or reduces crime.

"Of particular interest to me in these trials, is the approach being taken to Restorative Justice initiatives, including the Neighbourhood Justice Panels now being explored here in Dorset. I shall watch these developments with interest."
