Proposed merger - release of full business case and appendices

A number of documents are being published on the Future Policing website in accordance with the publication strategy for the proposed merger of Devon & Cornwall Police and Dorset Police.

These include:

  • Full business case with five separate sections:
    • Strategic case with the operational thread
    • Economic case
    • Commercial case
    • Financial case
    • Management case
  • Appendices for all of the above cases
  • Full survey report from Enventure, the company that devised and managed the survey

The business case was not submitted to the Home Office so the proposed merger will not go ahead. It is now available to the public as it was agreed that it would be published for transparency as part of the publication strategy regardless of whether it went ahead or not.

The documents can be found on the Progress page, along with the summary of the full business case and the engagement report which were published in September 2018.
