Dorset Police Launch Patrols To Ensure Lockdown Rule Compliance

The government has given Dorset Police funding to launch a dedicated COVID-19 response team.

This ‘Operation Tatoo’ money allows the force to patrol in one devoted vehicle with additional support from a second crew at certain times.

Officers will advise locals and support Dorset Council staff who will investigate regulation breaches by businesses.

Dorset Police say they will encourage residents to abide by the rules and carry out enforcement if it is necessary.
