Dorset Police chief wants more volunteers

Dorset's police chief says more volunteers and special constables can strengthen her force's community links.

Chief Constable Debbie Simpson wants to capitalise on the impetus volunteers created at the 2012 Olympic sailing and windsurfing events in Weymouth.

But Clive Chamberlain, of Dorset Police Federation, is concerned the move could undermine public faith and perception of the force.
