I am a Police Commissioner you can trust to deliver on my promises. I listen to the community. I hold regular public meetings and opportunities for the public to have a say in their local service. I work tirelessly to represent and engage with all areas of the Dyfed Powys area. Operational, front-line policing has and will always be a priority to me.
Who I am
- Current Police & Crime Commissioner
- Former Criminology Lecturer
- Former Police Intelligence Analyst
- 20 years Police experience
What I've done
Since being elected as the Police and Crime Commissioner in 2016, I have delivered:
- A state of the art CCTV system that is monitored 24/7 by police staff
- A dedicated team to detect and fight crime in our rural communities
- A focus and crack-down on county lines drug dealing to target organised crime
- A Neighbourhood Policing Model putting a face to local policing
- Investment in Youth Offending Teams to divert young people away from crime
- A new innovative Offender Diversionary Scheme to reduce re-offending
Being your Police and Crime Commissioner since 2016 has been a great privilege. To represent the public’s voice on Policing and local Criminal Justice issues has been the greatest honour of my life.
Policing and the wider Criminal Justice system have been under immense pressure and I am proud of my track record in ensuring the best possible local service. The Dyfed Powys Police Force area is one of the safest places in England and Wales.
Central Government have not supported local policing over the last 10 years but I have worked tirelessly to ensure additional Police Officers, staff and volunteers. I have balanced providing additional resources with maintaining low levels of council tax with our rates being the lowest in Wales.
I have delivered a new modern CCTV system, a dedicated rural crime team and placed an emphasis on tackling domestic violence and drug supply. County Lines activity has been kept to a minimum due to proactive work I have supported.
Services for young people have been a focus of mine to divert the youth away from a life of crime. I have visited, funded and supported many youth clubs across the Force area providing an annual £180,000 grant to youth services in the 4 local authority areas.
I am proud of what I have achieved over the past 5 years but I am motivated to continue my hard work to deliver further improvements. I hope you can support me on May the 6th so that I can continue to make a positive impact on the local police service and the safety of our communities.
