With just 67 days until the start of the London 2012 Games, Dorset Police are working with national colleagues to prepare for what will be the largest ever pre planned policing operation.

Starting in just a few days’ time it will keep the sailing venue and the local communities safe with the support of officers from other police forces, as Maria Greenwood reports.

Dorset Police say officers from across Dorset as well as other forces will support the policing of the Olympic and

Paralympic Games in Weymouth and Portland, but they will still be policing the rest of the county.

There'll be a maximum of 150 Dorset officers policing the Games on any one shift.

At the moment around 200 officers are deployed on the busiest days in the county.

The Olympic security operation in Dorset will also be supported by the Royal Navy, the Army and the Royal Air Force
