Weymouth & Portland is recognised as one of the most attractive areas in the country, and received international recognition by hosting the Olympic and Paralympic sailing events in the summer of 2012. The Weymouth & Portland Sailing Academy is the country’s premier sailing venue.

The area has been a traditional summer holiday resort since King George III came to Weymouth in 1789 and the large white horse carved into the hills on the edge of Weymouth remind residents and tourists of this.

The area has much to offer residents and visitors alike, being part of the Jurassic Coast, the scenery attracts visitors back time and time again, many staying in the towns popular hotels or at one of the campsites situated in the Borough.

Dorset Police in Weymouth operate from the building at Radipole Lane, near to the football ground, with Patrol and Safer Neighborhood Teams working together with other Agencies to make the area even safer than it already is.

Crime and Anti Social Behaviour has been falling over a number of years and with diminishing resources available, the challenge will be to continue this downward trend.

The key priority of the team at Weymouth and Portland is to find long term solutions to problems of Anti Social Behaviour and the aim of the team is to improve the quality of people’s lives within our community.

Officers follow a victim focused approach which is designed to support the needs of the victim putting them at the heart of everything that we do. Alongside this officers are proactive in targeting offenders .

We will be working with all our partners to enhance the Town Centre, in order to improve the quality of its family orientated facilities
