Commissioner to reveal how prepared police force is for Brexit

Published

on

DYFED-POWYS POLICE’S Commissioner, Dafydd Llywelyn, will outline what preparations the force is making for Brexit at Friday’s meeting of the Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Panel.

Panel member Cllr William Powell, representing Powys, has tabled the question for Mr Llywelyn following warnings from senior police figures across the UK that there is potential for disruption to transport and public services and the risk of civil unrest when – or if – Britain leaves the EU.

The Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Panel will meet at Carmarthen’s County Hall on Friday, January 25, to get a response to this and other questions.

Any member of the public, and the media, can attend to hear what the Commissioner has to say.

The meeting will also be webcast live, with an archive of the meeting available online.

The role of the Panel is to hold the Commissioner to account.

It is made up of representatives of the four local authorities in the force area and two independent members.

Panel Chair, Cllr Alun Lloyd Jones, said: “Brexit is dominating the news headlines and a topic of conversation across the county. As a Panel, it’s important that we seek assurances that Dyfed Powys Police is prepared and ready to deal with any potential impact.

“This will not be the only topic of discussion, we will also hear the Commissioner’s response to questions about rural crime, serious and organised crime and fraud.

“We will also have the opportunity to discuss the police precept and scrutinise any decisions he has taken in recent months.

“We hope that people will attend to watch the meeting in person, or take advantage of watching live on the webcast.”
