Find a Local Neighbourhood Watch Scheme

The Bridport section covers the towns of Bridport, Lyme Regis & Beaminster, the large farming communities of West Dorset, and the world famous Jurassic Coastline.

The section is split into three Safer Neighbourhood Teams (SNTs) who work directly to combat the issues raised by members of their local communities. To find out more about the teams and the work they are involved in, please access the SNT web pages via the link below.

The Bridport policing section consists of police officers, police community support officers, police staff, the Special Constabulary and police volunteers, all of whom are committed to providing the highest quality of service to the people who live, work and visit West Dorset. To support this work we have developed strong working relationships with our partners and other key agencies, which is helping to ensure that many issues affecting the people of West Dorset are being addressed and successful outcomes are being achieved through multi-agency working.

We are committed to reducing crime, bringing offenders to justice, and working to improve the quality of life for local people. Therefore we are always interested to hear from you, so please contact your SNT officers or contact Bridport Police Stations.
