Dorset Police, UK - Points Simulator

Closes 12 Dec 2019

Opened 19 Nov 2019

Overview

Dorset Police in England wanted to involve their citizens in prioritising police services and take part in allocating resources to specific services in order to get a better grasp of the real life challenges that the force face when trying to ensure that all aspects of tackling crime are accounted for.

They opted to use a points Simulator and broke their Simulator down in to 2 simple groups: High Harm Crime, and Neighbourhood and rural policing. 

Participants could allocate points to the services they valued most, but understand that for every service you improve there must be a trade-off elsewhere as resources are not endless.
