Emergency Services Family Fun Day 2017
The PCC, OPCC staff and volunteers attended the Emergency Services Family Fun Day at King's park to engage with communities over the 2017-2021 Police & Crime Plan.
Despite poor weather, thousands came from around Dorset to witness this multi-agency event.
Visitors had opportunities to engage with different emergency service teams, watch displays and get a closer look at vehicles and equipment.
On the day, the OPCC surveyed 112 people on a number of issues, including how they would rate the quality of the 101 service, their views on upcoming changes to the police complaints system and prefered methods of contact.
74% of people agreed that changes to the police complaints system, whereby OPCC would be the first point of contact, would be positive. Further findings will be shared in due course.
