Dafydd Llywelyn, Police and Crime Commissioner for the Dyfed-Powys area, has launched a public consultation on policing priorities and police funding, giving the public the opportunity to influence important policing decisions.

Two of the Commissioner’s main responsibilities are to set the policing priorities for Dyfed-Powys Police and to set the annual police budget along with the level of the police precept – the amount you pay for policing in your council tax.

In launching the consultation, Dafydd Llywelyn said: “I am currently looking ahead to 2021/22 in terms of policing priorities and the annual police budget and police precept. As your Police and Crime Commissioner, it is important to me that I am able to represent our communities in my decision-making. In order to do this effectively, I need to hear from you; residents and business owners across the force area. I have therefore developed a short online survey for you to share your views.”

Alternatively, email OPCC.Communication@dyfed-powys.pnn.police.uk or ring the Commissioner’s office on 01267 226440 to request a paper copy of the survey.

Through the survey, the Commissioner asks you to consider questions such as:

  • What do you feel Dyfed-Powys Police should prioritise as an organisation?
  • What crime types need addressing most in the Dyfed-Powys area?
  • Would you be willing to pay more to support local policing?

Dafydd Llywelyn adds: “I am urging the communities of the Dyfed-Powys area to voice your opinions on these important issues to ensure that Dyfed-Powys Police can continue to safeguard its communities with the highest standard of service available”.

The survey opens on Monday 7 December 2020, and ends on Sunday 3 January 2021.
