The PCC is an elected official responsible for the governance and oversight of Dorset Police as well as working more widely with local partners, organisations and communities to improve community safety and criminal justice outcomes across the whole of Dorset. The PCC also acts as the 'public voice in policing' - representing the views of the public in determining the strategic priorities for policing locally during his term of office.With that in mind we want to make it as easy as possible for people to find out information relating to the work of the PCC and to make contact if/when required. One important element of this is our website:www.dorset.pcc.police.ukWorking Together to Keep Dorset Safe
