Dorset Police Launch Water Scooters to Curb Anti-Social Behaviour

18

In an inspired response to growing local unrest, police officers of Dorset are introducing the use of water scooters to combat increasing anti-social behaviour. The decision follows a string of grievances from residents and tourists alike who allege that certain individuals brazenly flout restrictions, recklessly driving in swim-only zones and exceeding speed regulations on rivers.

The strategic employment of these aquatic vessels is set to empower police to ramp up patrols significantly. They will be able to extend their reach along close to 100 miles of the county’s picturesque coastline and deep into the scenic inland waterways.
