What We Do

In 2010 Dyfed Powys Police dealt with 389,308 non-emergency calls to our call centre and our officers responded to 24,452 emergency incidents throughout our Force area.

As well as our front line neighbourhood officers we have a number of officers who have specialist roles. These include negotiators; firearms officers; roads policing officers; dog handlers; public safety teams; search teams; financial crime officers; and intelligence teams.

They are supported by a number of expert teams that include scenes of crime; driver training; police officer training; firearms licensing; call handlers and dispatchers; researchers and analysts; emergency planners as well as a range of business functions you would expect in any large organisation e.g., procurement; IT; legal services; HR and finance.

The level of crime in Dyfed Powys is low compared to other Force areas which makes it the safest places in England and Wales. Our detection rate for incidents that do take place is also the highest in the country with around half of all crimes reported detected. You can see the exact figures in the national crime statistics that are reported every three months (http://homeoffice.gov.uk/science-research/research-statistics/).
