HAVE your say on which areas of policing are most important to you in a new survey.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Dorset David Sidwick has launched a survey to gauge which areas of policing are most important to people living in the county as he sets out a new strategic direction for Dorset Police and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner over the next three years.

Participants will be shown six different priority areas - such as cutting crime and anti-social behaviour, and making every penny counts - and asked to rate how important each one is.

Mr Sidwick said: "This is your chance to tell me and Dorset Police what you want us to prioritise over the next few years.

"It will look at priorities derived from three years of campaigning and talking to the people of Dorset, which will form the basis for the plan, and now we need to check what you think about them - do you agree with them and do they align with your own values?"

The survey should take no more than five minutes to complete.
