Summer Safety Survey 2022

Every summer, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner hold a survey and this year its all about how safe you feel in Dorset.

Following his election in May 2021, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset, David Sidwick immediately set about creating his Police and Crime Plan, which was driven by the clear and consistent feedback he had received from people representing the many diverse communities of Dorset.

The PCC gained a clear picture of what mattered to local communities, which enabled him to bring his vision into focus, and work with his team, to develop the Plan - clearly stating his priorities to make Dorset the safest county.

And now, having been Police and Crime Commissioner for just over a year, he is keen to learn more about the people of Dorset’s perception of policing in their community.

The Commissioner commented “I want to know how ‘safe’ you feel in your community, I want to know how ‘visible and connected’ you feel to Dorset Police and whether you think Dorset Police are using their resources to the best effect where you live and so I would be delighted and very grateful if the people of Dorset would participate in this survey and tell me what they think.”

All OPCC surveys are completely anonymous – (no personal information is requested/collected or stored).

The OPCC use the results as anonymised statistics. Where participants have been asked to provide comments, these cannot be identified to a survey user.

Comments are combined with those gathered from other survey participants and are analysed as part of a group.

The OPCC provides these anonymised results to stakeholder partners such as Dorset Police, to help them gain a better understanding of what is working well and identify areas that may need improvement.
