Dorset Police

Dorset Police is the territorial police force responsible for policing the county of Dorset in the south-west of England, which includes the largely rural area covered by Dorset Council, and the urban conurbation of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. Dorset Police covers a population of over 700,000, which swells considerably in the tourist season. As of September 2019, the force is the 14th smallest of 48 UK police forces in terms of officer numbers, and the 20th smallest territorial police force in terms of geographic area.
