Crime and disorder reduction

The Crime and Disorder Act requires councils, the police, primary care trusts, the fire and rescue service, other key agencies and the community to work together at borough/district level to develop and implement plans for reducing crime and disorder.

The act also requires councils to integrate consideration of crime and disorder issues into all their functions and corporate thinking.

Dorset borough and district councils, Dorset County Council, Dorset Police, Dorset Health Authority, Dorset Fire and Rescue Service, Dorset Police Authority and Dorset Fire Authority are committed to are doing this through crime and disorder reduction partnerships, with the aim of increasing public reassurance and improving the quality of life for everyone.

The partnerships work closely with the county's drug action and youth offending teams.
