A plan that directs the priorities of policing in the Welshpool area has been ratified by the Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Panel.

The plan, developed by Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn, covers priorities for the force during the next financial year.

Mr Llywelyn said the plan was developed in conjunction with officers, staff, partners and the public.

Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn said: “The security and safety of the residents served by Dyfed-Powys Police is my priority as Commissioner, and through the Police and Crime Plan I have set the strategic direction and priorities for Dyfed-Powys Police during my term in office.

“Partnership working is fundamental to delivering a joined-up approach to tackling the challenges that face all public services, such as a reduction in finances, the increasing diversity of our population and the rapid advances in technology.”

He added: “I will work closely with community safety and criminal justice partners to ensure that services are effective and efficient at keeping people safe, supporting victims and bringing people to justice. With our partners, we will explore opportunities for the joint commissioning of services to help make our communities safer.” 

“My priorities in the plan are keeping our communities safe; safeguarding the vulnerable; protecting our communities from serious threats; and connecting with communities. I will be holding the Chief Constable to account in respect of delivery of this plan.”

The purpose of the Plan is to drive improvement in service provision to the public, and is supported by the Chief Constable’s Delivery Plan.”

Chief Constable Mark Collins said: “As Chief Constable I am responsible for safeguarding our communities through the delivery of efficient, effective and responsive policing. Supporting the Police and Crime Plan is our Police and Crime Delivery Plan that sets out how we will deliver policing against the Police and Crime Plan priorities.

“I look forward to working closely with the Commissioner to ensure that we achieve the objectives of the plan – and we have prioritised the objectives on a short, medium and long-term basis. There is a number of key delivery principles: supporting victims; public engagement; working together; strong leadership; and value for money.”

He added: “As widely publicised, recent inspections by HMIC have graded Dyfed-Powys Police as ‘requiring improvement’ in a number of areas – I acknowledge the challenge ahead but am confident that we can return to being a leading force in England and Wales.”
