Newly elected Dyfed-Powys police and crime commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn has vowed to visit Welshpool to hear worries about anti-social behaviour and says local crime will be a trop priority.

Fears about crime and yobbish behaviour in Welshpool have grown in recent months and in March a petition containing more than 500 signatures was handed over to the then police commissioner, Christopher Salmon, calling for a legal order to be imposed to ban anti-social street drinking.

Mr Salmon lost his job to Mr Llywelyn in the police and crime commissioner elections two weeks ago.

The new commissioner has been quick to spell out his priorities and that includes visiting Welshpool to hear from councillors about the town’s problems.

He said: “I plan a meeting with members of Welshpool Town Council in the near future. I look forward to listening carefully to their issues and concerns. I’ll get out amongst local people and will do things that keep them safe. I will work with the police and others to make communities safer. A key focus will be on preventing local crime.”

“I will forge strong partnerships, carry out effective local engagement and develop new levels of trust.”

Mr Dafydd Llywelyn pledged that everything he does will be for the local communities of Dyfed-Powys.

Mr Llywelyn said: “It’s an honour and privilege to serve the people of Dyfed-Powys.

“My early tasks will include the recruitment of a new Chief Constable to replace Simon Prince who plans to retire this summer."
