Police are urging people with speech difficulties to join the Dyfed Powys Police Pegasus Scheme.

It is a service designed to make it easier for people who live and/or work in the Dyfed Powys Police area to communicate with the force quickly and easily on both the 101 and 999 numbers.

Application forms for the scheme are available from the local Neighbourhood Policing Team. A request can also be made through the police Communication Centre on 101 or through the advice section of our website http://www.dyfed-powys.police.uk/en/advice/the-pegasus-scheme/.

Registering for the scheme is free. Once a person is registered and their selected password is approved the individual is a member of the scheme.

Chief Inspector Dyfed Bolton said: “The Pegasus Scheme is really simple. The caller will only have to say ‘Pegasus’ and give their password to be identified by our call handlers. They will then have access to that person’s information and how best to communicate with that person.”

Pegasus users are also provided with a Pegasus keyring to carry, so that if they are approached by Officers/PCSOs and find it difficult to communicate with them they can show their card, provide their password to allow officers access to their details.

For more information about the Pegasus Scheme visit http://www.dyfed-powys.police.uk/en/advice/the-pegasus-scheme/ or call 101.
