The Police and Crime Commissioner – the Voice of the Public in Policing

PCC logoThe role of the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is to listen to the public and respond to their needs, bringing more of a public voice to policing and giving the public a name and a face to complain to if they aren’t satisfied.

The PCC will act as the voice of the public in policing, ensuring that public priorities are acted upon, that victims are consulted and that the most vulnerable individuals are not overlooked

PCC Community Forums

Dorset’s elected PCC, Martyn Underhill, is committed to engaging with local people and listening to their views. The PCC are establishing PCC Community Forums across Dorset, made up of community volunteers who can reflect the diverse communities and interests that make up each area. We are therefore actively seeking community volunteers to come forward and get involved by joining one of these forums which will be held in a variety of venues across Dorset .

To accompany the Community Engagement Forums, we will also be facilitating local PCC surgeries, in order that members of the community can book a private face to face meeting with the Police and Crime Commissioner to discuss issues in confidence,

If you are interested in making a positive difference to your community, and have an interest in community safety, crime and policing, and would like more information about joining the forums, please contact me for more details. .
