Police and Crime Commissioner hosts engagement events for community representatives with Police

This week (27-31 March 2023), Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn hosted two engagement events for community representatives in Carmarthenshire with the aim of informing councillors and other representatives of recent developments and changes within Dyfed-Powys Police, and to provide an opportunity for people to share any local concerns or issues with the Force.

On Wednesday 29 March 2023, and Thursday 30 March 2023, the events titled – Here for you: Getting the most from your Police Services, took place in the Halliwell Centre in Carmarthen, and Ffwrnes Llanelli.

During the events, councillors were briefed on the Force’s current priorities for tackling crime in our area, the new Neighbourhood Policing Team model, how the Force Communication Centre operates, and the Force’s partnership approach to tackling Antisocial behaviour.

There was also an opportunity for Councillors to engage with the Dyfed-Powys School Beat Team Officers, Rural Crime Officers and representatives from several of the PCC’s Commissioned Services such as Goleudy, and New Pathways.

Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn said, “As Police and Crime Commissioners, we are often considered to be the bridge between the communities and the Police. In that sense, these engagement events are key for us as we look to ensure that our communities understand and know of any developments within their Police Force, and the level of service that they should expect. Over the next month my Office has arranged six of these events across the Force area, which started this week in Carmarthenshire.

“Not only are they an opportunity for us to update councillors and other community representatives of key messages and developments within Dyfed-Powys Police, but also an opportunity for us to listen, and for councillors to raise their concerns directly with us.

“We have also invited representatives from some of the victim support agencies that I commission in the area, and I would like to thank all who attended this week in Carmarthenshire to engage with us, and look forward to travel the Force area to the rest of the events over the next month.
The next Here for you events will take place on the following dates:

5th April in Newtown, 6th of April in Brecon, 19th of April in Haverfordwest, and 26th of April in Lampeter. Any councillors or community representatives who would like to attend are asked to contact the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner via the following email address: OPCC.Communication@dyfed-powys.police.uk
