On Friday, 13 March 2020, the Government announced that all local, mayoral and Police and Crime Commissioner elections that were due to take place this May will be postponed until May 2021.

The decision was taken following advice from the Government’s medical experts in relation to the response to the Covid-19 virus and the advice of those delivering elections.

The Association of Police and Crime Commissioners is working closely with the Home Office in their drafting of clauses for emergency legislation in relation to the postponement.

This will allow existing Police and Crime Commissioners to continue in their role for a further year.

Current Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner, Dafydd Llywelyn will therefore remain in office until May 2021.

Carys Morgans, Chief of Staff at Dyfed-Powys Office of Police and Crime Commissioner said, “In light of the current situation, it is our intention to seek approval from the Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Panel to extend the current Police and Crime Plan for a further year. This will allow the Office, and current Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn to continue to work on the key priorities outlined within the Plan for an additional year.”
