Dyfed Powys Police & Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn says he cannot confirm match-funding for Welshpool’s CCTV system.

The Commissioner was reacting to a statement made at Welshpool Town Council’s annual meeting by Town Clerk Robert Robinson that the force would commit £6,000 per year to improve the scheme.

Mr Robinson said that the current system cost the council £5,250 per year to operate. He said the Commissioner would fund improvements which would involve a new digital system housed at the town’s Police Station and additional cameras.

He said he estimated costs going forward of £6,000 per year from the council and Dyfed Powys.

Mr Llywelyn said: “The statement by Mr Robinson is partly true in that we are reviewing CCTV across the Force area and that includes Welshpool. 

“The re-investment in CCTV is a key election pledge and priority for me.  However, no detailed costings have been agreed. 

“I am therefore not in a position to confirm the financial cost and investment but give you an assurance that Welshpool will be included in the Force-wide project.”
