Draft Domestic Abuse Strategy for Dorset. Tackling domestic abuse is a priority for the Dorset Community Safety Partnership. The partnership has recently agreed a draft domestic abuse strategy and is currently out for public consultation until the 12 December 2021.   

Community Safety Partnerships are committed to tackling not only crime and the fear of crime, but also the causes of crime.

The purpose of the Dorset Community Safety Partnership (CSP)

To deliver safer communities as set out in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and relevant legislation. 

The CSP will co-ordinate community safety activity in Dorset at a strategic level:

  • to reduce crime and the fear of crime
  • to address the risk, threat and harm to victims and local communities
  • facilitate the strengthening of Dorset's communities in the delivery of local initiatives
