“As part of ongoing community engagement and following recent terrorism incidents globally Dyfed Powys Police have been undertaking an assessment of community tensions across the force area.

As part of this assessment it was decided that it would be prudent to visit newsagents who maybe distributing the Charlie Hebdo magazine to offer proportionate advice and reassurance due to the heightened publicity surrounding the publication.

It was not the intention to gather any personal information of those who purchased the magazine and we can confirm no purchaser details were asked for or recorded.

Dyfed Powys Police can confirm the visits were only made to enhance public safety and to provide community reassurance”
