12:09pm 27th December 2012
Dorset Police has welcomed a report which assesses how well the force monitors and manages integrity issues.
Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary has conducted a review of 43 forces in England and Wales.
They viewed the work of our Dorset force "positively".
Several changes have been made at Dorset Police within the past year including recoding gifts and hospitality received and how staff use social networking sites like Twitter.
Deputy Chief Constable Adrian Whiting said: "We are pleased that Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary has viewed the Force's ongoing work positively, although it must be stressed that we will not become complacent.
"As acknowledged by the report, we have made several changes within the last year. These include improvements to our register of gifts and hospitality - which now records refusals of hospitality - and continued work to ensure that we better identify business interests, second jobs and links with suppliers or potential suppliers.
"Integrity is a key value for Dorset Police and we will continue to build upon this work in the future."
