6 Point Plan To Tackle Crime In The County
8:02am 29th March 2013
Dorset's Police and Crime Commissioner has today unveiled his 5 year Police and Crime plan to keep us safe.
Martyn Underhill has 6 priorities.
They are - reducing the number of victims of crime, reducing the number of people seriously harmed, protecting us from serious threats and reducing reoffending.
Mr Underhill also wants to increase our satisfaction in policing and to support Neighbourhood policing.
Mr Underhill added: "I want to see a more visible force which operates in the heart of the community, fighting crime and providing reassurance. Through the recruitment of 250 additional Special Constables, we will see the 'bobbies on the beat' that the people of Dorset desire. Neighbourhood policing is important, for reassurance and to cut crime.
"I also want to see the number of victims reduced, but for those who do become victims, we need to support them every step of the way."
Dorset Police Chief Constable Debbie Simpson said: "I've worked closely with the PCC to ensure we have a Police and Crime Plan in place which will deliver a quality service to our communities.
"Our committed team of officers, police staff, volunteers and special constables will continue to work together with our partners and communities to make Dorset safer and this plan will help to shape how we continue to deliver our policing service in Dorset."
