Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Commissioner Review Form

One of the key statutory responsibilities of the Police and Crime Commissioner is to deal with formal complaints received against the Chief Constable (former or current).  The Commissioner must decide initially whether to record the complaint (in line with legislative requirements) and if so, how to address it. 

If you wish to complain against the Chief Constable you can do so in one of the following ways:

  • Email: opcc@dyfed-powys.pnn.police.uk
  • By Post: OPCC, PO Box 99, Llangunnor, Carmarthen, SA31 2PF

There is a slightly different process to follow when complaining about the Police & Crime Commissioner. In accordance with the provisions that are contained in the Elected Local Policing Bodies (Complaints and Misconduct) Regulations 2012, the Police & Crime Panel deals with any complaints about the Police and Crime Commissioner.
