Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday night, I would like to reassure the public that the extensive planning and preparation work that has taken place within the Dyfed Powys Police Force over the last week is now in place.

I’m in daily contact with colleagues from both the UK Government and the Welsh Government, as well as local authorities, and continuously being updated on operational response through my daily briefings with the Dyfed Powys Chief Constable, Mark Collins.  Rest assured, we will act appropriately to support our key partners in safeguarding our communities.

This week has been an unprecedented experience for me in my 20 year career within Policing, and I would like to thank you all for your cooperation during this difficult and uncertain time for all of us.

Protecting the vulnerable should be everyone’s priority at this point in time. Play your part. Stay home, stay safe and we will save lives.
