Dyfed-Powys Police officers are once again looking forward to policing the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show, as we do every year. We enjoy a close relationship with the organisers and security team.
Innovative police tactics allow us to deter, detect and disrupt crime at public events such as the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show.
Superintendent Huw Meredith said: “We will be deploying specialist assets such as covert police officers, and armed officers who will help keep show-goers safe. Please don’t be alarmed when you see armed officers patrolling the show site, they are there to protect you and are a friendly bunch if you want to speak to them.
“Security is paramount to us at events such as this, so we ask for your patience and cooperation when getting through the gates. You can help us keep the event safe by being vigilant for anyone or anything that looks out of place or suspicious by reporting it to us on the 101 number.
“If you have any questions or concerns, our officers will be on hand to assist you. Equally, all those working at the show have been briefed to keep an eye out for suspicious activity so they will also be on hand to help.”
