History of the Trust
The Dyfed Powys Crime Prevention Trust is a registered charitable trust. Established 1996 by Heddlu Dyfed-Powys Police, its primary aim was to support the Bobby Van Scheme across the Dyfed-Powys Police area. The administration of the trust was overseen by the Chief Inspector for Partnerships, but with the agreement of the Chief Constable, Chair of the Trust has now been handed over to the External Funding Manager for the Police and Crime Commissioner.
How the Trust operates today
During a Trustee meeting in 2014, it was felt by Trustee members that the governance framework was unsuitable in its current form. Given this, it was decided that the Trust should be reviewed so that the Trust would be more able to undertake additional responsibilities in future. The External Funding Manager for the Police and Crime Commissioner was tasked to undertake a review to namely;
- advise on the Trust's future development; and
- to ensure the trust had a suitable governance framework in place.
After consultation, it was decided that the Trust would be renamed and the objectives of the charity updated, which are highlighted below -
For the public benefit, the promotion of crime prevention and community safety advice, reduction of the fear of crime and the provision of education and information on community safety in particular but not exclusively;
- To prevent and reduce the fear of crime throughout Dyfed Powys by working with schools, community groups, charities and Dyfed Powys Police to undertake crime and disorder prevention initiatives and programmes;
- Assist in measures to reduce the level of crime and meet the priorities in the Police and Crime Plan and those of Dyfed Powys Police;
- To support families, individuals and vulnerable groups who have become victims of crime and are affected by crime or the fear of crime;
- Other activities that support the work of the Police and the Police and Crime Plan.
