Dorset Police have renewed their commitment to making sure local officers communicate with their communities.

The Neighbourhood Engagement Contract (NEC) published over the coming weeks on the relevant neighbourhood policing pages of sets out eight minimum standards and common objectives each neighbourhood policing team aims to achieve. The contract, and the neighbourhood plans outline how local policing teams will hold meetings, form partnerships and provide social media feeds, as well as linking in with partner agencies to share best practice and good ideas.

The plans, which cover separate areas of Dorset, were developed by their respective local policing inspector.

This is the second year of the plans and they coincide with the launch of the second phase of the ‘Your Dorset. Your Police. Your View’ survey, asking the public how it would prefer to contact the force.
