Every Football Club has a Dedicated Football Officer (DFO) here at Burnley FC we have Ross Bosdorff, who has been a Police Officer for almost 20 years.
In 2018 Ross became the DFO for Burnley FC.
His role isn’t just arresting and banning supporters although you will be aware that this does play a part from time to time. He is the link between Lancashire Police and the Community.
Ross is happy to work across all areas of provision and will support on Community activities when required.
Last November Ross and a colleague initiated the first hate crime in football conference which took place at Turf Moor and was a great success. This was the first of its kind in the UK.
Ross is available via the safeguarding team firstname.lastname@example.org – whether it is to report a crime, ask a question or just for a chat he is more than happy to take the time out for you.
A message from Ross “I look forward to seeing you all when we get back to normality, in the meantime thanks for all your help and stay safe.”
