Community work carried out by the Dorset Police Neighbourhood teams was celebrated last week as part of the Neighbourhood Policing Week of Action.
The week of action, launched by the National Police Chiefs’ Council, took place from Monday 17 January until Sunday 23 January 2022.
It was an opportunity to display and celebrate the good work the neighbourhood teams carry out in their communities across the county.
Chief Inspector Andy Edwards, from the Dorset policing command area, said: “Seeing the good work celebrated on each local policing team social media page this week was heartening.
“Our neighbourhood policing teams are out in their communities every day, building trust and confidence, making sure that people feel safe and that we are targeting the issues that directly affect residents and business.
“This week was an ideal opportunity to show how we do this and display our continued commitment to neighbourhood policing.”
David Sidwick, Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “I was happy to see the important work of the local neighbourhood policing teams celebrated on social media this week.
“Making policing more visible is a commitment I have made as part of my Police and Crime Plan. Strengthening the link between communities and the police will help us to prevent crime, keep people safe and bring offenders to justice.”
