Community Consultation Forums

The Community Consultation Forums held in November 2004 supported
the continuation of the 2004/2005 priorities, but also felt that there
should be more visible policing, increased speed enforcement, tackling
anti-social behaviour and drugs and alcohol related crime.

The priorities for policing in Dyfed Powys for 2005/2006 are as follows:
    To reduce all violent crime, particularly that which is alcohol related,
working closely with partner agencies
    To reduce levels of burglary, particularly dwelling burglaries, by
improving use of available intelligence and developing local and
forcewide prevention initiatives

07 March 2005
    To tackle Class A drugs supply throughout the Force area, working
in partnership with other forces and agencies
    To tackle anti-social behaviour in its various forms, providing greater
reassurance for the public and improving the quality of life in our
communities.
