Dafydd Llywelyn was elected as one of the two new Plaid Cymru PCCs during 2016’s election and is the PCC for Dyfed-Powys Police.
Dyfed-Powys Police covers over half the land mass of Wales and during the PCC elections had the highest turnout of all PCC elections at 49%.
Dafydd is a former Principal Intelligence Analyst and worked within Police Intelligence for many years before, in 2014, moving to Aberystwyth University to lecture on Criminology. His career has provided him with considerable insight into core policing issues as well as an understanding of what the public want from the service.
Dafydd is the APCC Police Leadership Portfolio Lead and hopes his keen interest in Leadership and Corporate Strategy will also be a positive influence on Dyfed Powys Police, the staff and the service it provides.
He has pledged to reinvest in CCTV and prevention activities and has refused to appoint a deputy.
Dafydd is a fluent Welsh speaker, a family man with 5 children and enjoys all sports, but takes particular delight in following Wales’ football team home and abroad.
The salary for the Dyfed-Powys Police & Crime Commissioner is £66,300 per annum. This salary is set nationally by the Home Secretary on recommendations from the Senior Salaries Review Body.
