Dorset Police - Ready For The 2012 Games
Dorset Police say they've been working with national colleagues to prepare for what will be the largest ever pre-planned policing operation -The 2012 Olympic sailing events.
Dorset Police will deliver a 65-day policing operation to keep the sporting venue and local communities safe, with support provided by officers from other police forces through mutual aid arrangements – co-ordinated nationally by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).
Assistant Chief Constable Adrian Whiting is leading the Games safety and security operation in Dorset. He said:
“Officers from across Dorset, as well as officers from other police forces, will support the policing of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Weymouth and Portland but we will still be policing therest of Dorset.
“The maximum number of Dorset officers serving on the Games on any one shift currently will be approximately 150, but this total varies significantly according to the demands of each day and on many days is significantly smaller.
“We will be drawing upon the support of other police forces to provide officers, some with specialist skills, to assist our operation. The maximum number of mutual aid police officers on duty in Dorset on any one shift on our busiest days will currently be approximately 200, but again that number is not constant and is significantly less on many days.
“It is important to recognise that these numbers are approximate and are based upon our planning at this time, which will continually evolve in response to the situation we face.
“We are committed to making Dorset safer and as well as planning for a safe and secure Games, we will continue to provide operational service as usual across the rest of Dorset.”
The Olympic safety and security operation in Dorset is also supported by all three Services – Royal Navy,Army and Royal Air Force – as well as local authority and emergency service partners, particularly through the Bournemouth, Dorset & Poole Local Resilience Forum.
Officers say many of those were after people didn't secure their car properly.
James Hemming pleaded guilty to wounding with intent after a 17-year-old girl was badly injured in Fratton.
Dorset and Hampshire officers will be carrying out extra patrols until New Year's Day.
