Dyfed Powys Police Commissioner outlines plans


Dyfed Powys Commissioner Dayfdd Llywelyn has updated the Police and Crime Panel on his future plans.
The Commissioner attended the last meeting of the Panel where he provided a progress report on the Police and Crime Plan.
The plan contains details of his priorities which are -
  • preventing and dealing with incidents and crime;
  • protecting vulnerable people;
  • bringing people to justice;
  • enhancing access to policing services;
  • ensuring high standards of professionalism;
  • and spending wisely.
The Panel heard that consultation had been carried out with the public regarding the plan which the Commissioner has a duty to publish annually.
Letters have also been sent to town and community councils within the force area to ask their views.
Mr Llywelyn said responses to date had been varied ranging from local issues to more serious offending.
Partnership work was key to the success of the plan, and would be at its core, he said, along with public engagement.
Mr Llywelyn also answered several questions from panel members on issues such as terrorism threats, alcohol-related crime and the funding formula for police forces, which raised concerns about the budget for the Dyfed Powys area.
Panel Chair Andy Edwards said: “This is the first opportunity the Panel has had to engage with the Police and Crime Commissioner proactively.
“It will make for a more collegiate, stronger and robust plan. Members have had that invitation and can now share their views.”
