Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner, Dafydd Llywelyn, has published his 2021-2022 Annual Report, which evidences the work undertaken by the Commissioner, his team and partners during the 2021-2022 financial year in delivering against the priorities set out within the 2021-2025 Police and Crime Plan

Dafydd Llywelyn said; “2021-22 has been a productive year, with the appointment of a new Chief Constable for Dyfed-Powys Police, the development and launch of my new 2021-25 Police and Crime Plan and the continued partnership working with key services, stakeholders, and partners both at a local and regional level.”

The Annual Report is available electronically on the Commissioner’s website: https://www.dyfedpowys-pcc.org.uk/en/the-commissioner/police-and-crime-commissioners-annual-report/ , and hard copies can be obtained via the Commissioner’s Office.

The Annual Report reflects on the work undertaken to meet the Commissioner’s priorities: that victims are supported, harm is prevented and our justice system is more effective, as well as how the Commissioner has continued to champion collaboration, accountability, sustainability, and engagement.

There have been many key achievements throughout the year, which the Commissioner reports on, such as, but by no means limited to:

  • The continued delivery of important commissioned services – services funded by the Commissioner – which help prevent crime, support the vulnerable and tackle community issues.
  • The acquisition of further Home Office ‘Safer Streets’ funding, resulting in continued vital support for areas considered as the most deprived in Carmarthenshire.
  • The headline-grabbing grant of £300,000 the Commissioner awarded to Swansea City AFC Foundation’s Premier League Kicks programme to roll out free weekly football sessions to children and young people in five locations across the force area.
  • The Commissioner’s sixth consecutive annual St David’s Day Conference, where he was joined both in-person and online by numerous key individuals, to shine a light on the challenges we face and opportunities available in tackling anti-social behaviour.
  • The continued opportunities for individuals affected by crime to have their voices heard through the work of the Dyfed-Powys Victim Engagement Forum. This included the development of a training video depicting the real-life experiences of victims and survivors which is now used as a learning resource for police training programmes within Dyfed-Powys Police.

Mr Llywelyn adds; ““I take great pride in what we have achieved over the year and would like to extend my thanks to all those who have contributed and supported our endeavours over the past year.”
