As the Police and Crime Commissioner, I commission services directly from specialist providers to help prevent crime, support the vulnerable and tackle issues that are important to you. Detailed below are the service providers and partners that support my strategy.

Offender Diversionary Scheme
The Dyfed-Powys Diversionary Scheme seeks to address criminal behaviour at a much earlier stage in an individuals offending journey by tackling the root causes of offending and associated health and community related issues. It aims to reduce the number of victims of crime by offering eligible offenders a four month long programme of interventions as an alternative to prosecution.
To read more about the Commissioner’s work with Pobl, which aims to divert low level offenders away from the Criminal Justice System and reduce reoffending in the force area, read pages 11-12 of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioner’s article here: “PCCs Making a Difference Alcohol and Drugs in Focus”.
Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service
Restorative justice for victims
Restorative Justice Facilitators at Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service deliver a victim-led restorative justice service for those living in Dyfed-Powys. The Police and Crime Commissioner has signed the Restorative Justice pledge and it is one of his priorities to ensure victims have access to restorative justice at all points of their criminal justice journey. The Commissioner holds to account the agencies whose responsibility it is to inform victims of their right to access restorative justice.
