The Community Road Safe initiative is derived from the Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner’s manifesto promise to work with charities to target and educate the general driving population, not just offenders, and also the Dorset Police priority to ‘Reduce the number of people seriously harmed in Dorset’ and the SafeWise charity’s aim to reduce the number of people killed in preventable accidents on the roads and in the home.

Please note: Community Road Safe sessions are not suitable for children to attend.
