Young people and local councillors will be among the North Pembrokeshire people visited by Police and Crime Commissioner Christopher Salmon on April 2.

His Your Voice day of activity in the area will also see him meet individuals and small groups privately with 20-minute appointments.

Mr Salmon said: “By speaking to me, the public have a direct say in our criminal justice system. Local people understand local issues better than anybody and I want to know how their thoughts are evolving.”

Those due to meet Mr Salmon include young people and volunteers involved with POINT Young People’s Trust, and members of St Davids City Council and Fishguard Town Council. He also hopes to discuss local policing with local PCSOs.

The Commissioner oversees an annual Dyfed-Powys policing fund of around £96m. As the elected voice of the public, he makes the police answerable to the communities they serve.

He works in partnership across a range of agencies to ensure a unified approach to preventing and reducing crime.

In his first two years in office, his key achievements have included more police officers, improved access to the police, reduced policing costs and around £250,000 distributed to community initiatives through the Commissioner's Fund.

Mr Salmon has arranged 12 Your Voice days through 2015 – three in each Dyfed-Powys county of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys.

The schedule includes: Aberystwyth, Carmarthen and St Clears, Builth Wells and Brecon, New Quay and Aberaeron. He visited South Pembrokeshire in January, the Lampeter area in February then the Presteigne and Llanelli areas in March.
