There are plenty of ways that you can get involved with policing and community safety in Dorset, including volunteering with us!
Upon re-election, PCC Martyn Underhill pledged to publish an annual engagement report outlining engagement activities carried out by the Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner (OPCC).
In 2018/19, we engaged with over 5,000 people face-to-face at summer events, speaking engagements, conferences, community meetings, PCC surgeries and online via the Precept survey.
We reached over four million people via our social media channels. We delivered two formal public consultations this year: the Devon & Cornwall and Dorset Police Merger Proposal and the Precept consultation, which received a combined figure of 9,000 responses from local people
In addition, an annual postal survey of Dorset residents - the Community Safety Survey - is also commissioned by the PCC.
A report has been produced summarising the findings of those that took the time to respond in 2017-18.
