Security firm to take over guarding crime scenes

A private security firm will be guarding serious crime scenes in Dorset from now on.

Dorset Police are outsourcing this part of their security to Securitas in a four month trial. Police say officers can now concentrate on frontline policing.

The work our Crime Scene Officers conduct is of the highest standard, having been police vetted and specifically trained for such a role prior to any deployment. Our density of branch network and front line staff enables us to deploy with pace, professionalism and the reliability you would expect from an organisation of our strength, depth and expertise. We look forward to supporting Dorset Police in this way in the months and years ahead.

– Mike Clancy, South West Area Director of Securitas
