Police officers attend surveillance conference in Cardiff

More than 50 officers from forces across Wales descended on Sophia Gardens, Cardiff, recently to learn more about becoming a WECTU Surveillance Officer.
WECTU is the Wales Extremism and Counter Terrorism Unit and is a collaboration of officers from South Wales, Gwent, Dyfed Powys and North Wales police.
Surveillance is just one of the tactics that are used in this arena to combat Counter Terrorism and Domestic Extremism.
Delivered by Surveillance Team members DI Huw Thomas, DC Andrew Goodburn, DC Andrea Marler and Emma Rees, attendees who may be considering a career within Surveillance had the unique opportunity to gain a realistic view of the demands of the role, and to ask questions and learn from the operational officers who have over 90 years of combined experience.
The sessions were particularly aimed at female and BME officers who are currently under represented within the department.
Detective Chief Inspector Jacquie Johnson said: “I was so pleased with the attitude and interest shown by the officers who attended which played a very important part in making the training session such a success.
“The feedback from our police colleagues from around Wales has been extremely positive, and I hope that it has encouraged some to consider WECTU in future career choices.”
