Dyfed-Powys Chief Constable Mark Collins has made the decision to return to a four-county command model.

The new model, which mirrors the local authorities, Supt. Jon Cummins take control of the Powys area with the new Powys approach consisting of a Superintendent, a Chief Inspector for Operations, a Chief Inspector for Partnerships and Support, and a dedicated Detective Chief Inspector.

Chief Constable, Mark Collins, said: “This is a positive change for Dyfed-Powys Police and will make it easier for us to meet the needs and expectations of local people.

“Work is underway to better understand how the neighbourhood policing model can be improved. This structural change at the command level in each county ensures officers and staff on the ground are available and are directed to the areas in which they are needed most. These changes also support better, more co-ordinate problem solving at the earliest opportunity, minimising the need for intervention at a later day.

“All of these efforts aim to provide a better service to the communities we serve and I will be closely monitoring our performance to ensure that the benefits of this new structure are being felt.”

Supt. Cummins, Commander for Powys, said: “There is much change ongoing across our Force area and I’m looking forward to putting the new structure here in Powys into action. As a resident of the county and someone who has previously spent two years working in Powys, I know how committed our staff are and the high level of support we will receive from partners and the community.

“Dyfed-Powys Police is committed to doing as much as we can to safeguard our communities and, to do this with the other organisation also tasked to serve our communities. The new arrangement supports closer working with these other organisations and provides a greater opportunity for long term planning and problem solving for Powys.”
