LISTEN: Unclear Where New Dorset Police Officers will be Stationed

(Updated 10:45am 13th February 2013)

Dorset's set to get 12 new police officers but it's still unclear where they'll be stationed.

The announcement of more police officers for Dorset was made last week after plans were agreed to raise the force's share of council tax.

Dorset Police say the recruitment is in its early stages and full details have not yet been finalised but they envisage an intake of 12 new officers around June 2013.

Wessex FM asked the Force if we'll see them in Dorchester, Weymouth, Portland or Bridport but the Force refused to comment.

Dorset Police say they're unable to comment on operational deployment.

Speaking to Wessex FM's Luke de Costa Dorset Police and Crime Commisioner Martyn Underhill says he'll be tapping into different rescources to find the right recruits.
