East Dorset is one of the larger policing sections in Dorset, & the team works hard to effectively engage with the public & work with partner agencies to resolve local policing priorities. The team is split into two strands, urban & rural. They both support each other, working closely with our response teams based in Ferndown & are supported by members of the special constabulary & community volunteers.

The urban team is comprised of 2 sergeants, 4 PC’s & 7 PCSO’s. With an inspector nominally in charge of both strands of the team. There are two smaller stations mainly used for NPT’s these are at Verwood & Wimborne, & the urban team is spread from Corfe Mullen with population of approx. 11,000 (2011), through to Wimborne with a population of approx. 16,000 (2014) along to Ferndown population of 27,000 (2011). Then up to Verwood via West Moors, with a combined population of approx. 22,000. Increasing expansion means this particular area has most of the sections population.

The team will patrol the area & engage with the community in order to provide reassurance & to deter crime. They can give advice on crime prevention & work hard with partner agencies to deal with problems reported by the community.

East Dorset has a very low crime rate & is a great place to live. It attracts lots of visitors & as such we want to keep both residents and visitors safe. We also want to continue our support of those affected by crime & protect vulnerable persons in the community.

As your local Neighbourhood Policing Team we are continuing to police toward our local priorities and targets, despite the current situation. We would normally be holding face to face engagements with our communities to help us build a better picture around what our local community priorities should be. We are keen to continue harnessing your community concerns to achieve this. Therefore we have created this quick online survey to help us make an inform decision around our NPT local priorities. Please see the attached link which will take directly to our, (very quick) survey.
