Safer Neighbourhood officers join forces with local businesses to raise awareness of industrial crime and offer advice to business owner to help keep their property safe.

In total, 17 local businesses attended an Industrial Watch meeting held by Blandford Safer Neighbourhood officers and a local business owner. 

This meeting was designed to raise awareness of the industrial crimes occurring in Blandford and to introduce the community to ringmaster. 

Ringmaster is a free service offered by Dorset Police. 

It is a community messaging system delivering messages to recipients about local issues in their area. 

Police Community Support Officer Rich Mullins, from the Blandford Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: "This meeting will continue to be a regular one in Blandford.

"This will give the Blandford Safer Neighbourhood Team the opportunity to discuss what is happening in the area and what we, the police, are doing to tackle these issues.

"It also gives us the opportunity to offer crime prevention advice to the industrial community and let them know what they can do to help keep their property safe."
