Police CCTV is up and running in Builth Wells ahead of this year’s Royal Welsh Show.

This is the first works to be completed as part of the reinvestment by Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn in the CCTV provision across the Dyfed-Powys Police force.

Monitoring of CCTV during the Royal Welsh Show will take place locally at Builth Wells Police Station and will also be viewed at the Force Communication Centre at Police Headquarters, Carmarthen.

A state of the art monitoring room at Police Headquarters will be fully operational by mid- August 2018, which will coincide with the installation of cameras in Carmarthen Town Centre.   

Dafydd Llywelyn, Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner, said:  “I am very pleased to be able to announce that CCTV in Builth Wells has been successfully installed prior to the start of the Royal Welsh Show. 

“Builth Wells is the first town of 17 to see a reinvestment in a modern CCTV infrastructure and I am enthused to see the project deliver wider across the force area over the coming months.”

Mark Collins, Dyfed-Powys Police Chief Constable, said: “A tremendous amount of work has gone into the project to get to the point where the first town in this programme of works has gone live.

“I am personally looking forward to seeing the latest technology in CCTV cameras in operation during the Royal Welsh Show.”

Dyfed-Powys Police will also launch a new CCTV section on the force website (www.dyfed-powys.police.uk) this week where key updates will be provided as the programme of works progresses.
