Monthly updates from the various North Dorset Police Teams. This month’s news from Blandford’s Police Sergeant Jane Hammond
Blandford’s policing team worked hard to ensure everyone’s safety in the aftermath of Storm Eunice this month, says PS Jane Hammond
It’s been a busy few weeks, made ever more challenging by Storm Eunice. She certainly kept the teams busy!
We were able to deal with incidents during the storm, and also the aftermath of fallen trees and power lines with the help of Dorset Council and many other agencies. I was proud of all our teams and their hard work, helping to keep people safe.
The teams were also engaged with following up on crimes and anti-social behaviour; we are committed to putting victims first and being tough on crime. We do rely on our communities to tell us what they know and want you to continue to report incidents. This assists us to detect crimes and be in the right places at the right times to help prevent incidents.
On our social media you can see advertised where and when your local police teams will be in your communities for you to speak to in person.
We love these ‘engagements’ – some of them include partner agencies with whom we work to keep our communities safe. Please also look at our Dorset Police Web pages – ‘Neighbourhood Policing’, where you can see the faces and names of your local neighbourhood police officers and Police Community Support Officers (known as PCSOs).
For details on your local team’s future engagements please refer to our website. As always, if you wish to contact us follow the links. 79 You can report non urgent matters via 101, and remember if you see a crime in progress or a person in danger call 999.
