Welcome to Dorset Alert

Dorset Alert is a two way community messaging system operated by Dorset Police, which allows us to exchange information with you by email or phone at no cost to you. The system is designed to allow people who register, to choose the type of information they would like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events and local good news.

You will not be notified about every crime or incident that happens in your neighbourhood. Our aim is to send you information where we believe to do so will reduce the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour or will help Dorset Police to solve a crime.
