Resources will be secured specifically in support of delivering priorities under the Police and Crime plan for the following organisations:

  • Partners working with Dorset Police and/or the OPCC

Get Involved

The OPCC is particularly keen to hear from individuals, voluntary organisations and businesses that are interested in discussing the development of philanthropic partnerships to deliver enhanced services to help create a safer Dorset.

From time to time there will be consultations facilitating through forums, interviews and surveys.  Areas we will consult in may include:

  • Policy
  • Partnership Strategy
  • Identifying sector needs and knowledge

To get your organisation’s voice heard please do take the time to respond to any surveys we post in our consultations area.  Furthermore should you feel there are particular topics or issues that should be explored in relation to development opportunities then feel free to get in touch here.
