Funding your police service is an ongoing priority for me, ensuring the Chief Constable has the resources needed to continue the good work already happening across the county. Therefore, it is vital we are able to meet rising cost pressures and deliver a balanced budget moving forward.

As the Police and Crime Commissioner, I place great emphasis on my responsibility to ensure your views help shape the future of policing in our county. This survey is vitally important, and the results will have an impact on every local resident and business in Dorset. I will use the information shared through this process to set the policing element of council tax precept for 2024/25 and to help in deciding how best to allocate our budget.

The survey has the potential to make Dorset a safer place for us all, so thank you for taking the time to add your views and please share the survey with friends, family, and work colleagues so that we can get the greatest possible involvement from residents.
