As we head into the bank holiday weekend, Dyfed-Powys Police is doing all that we can to keep the public safe in light of the increase in UK security threat to CRITICAL. 

We are reviewing security at all events and key locations across the force area and are also liaising with venues and organisers.  We have specialist resources available to us should they be required and are very grateful and encouraged by our communities’ response to our calls to be more alert but not alarmed.

As many prepare for journeys around the force area or are planning on travelling elsewhere, we ask that people are mindful that the increase in the UK threat level may mean additional police presence and security checks at ports, airports and rail stations. This could result in some disruption to journeys, therefore we ask that people lease plan in advance and allow extra time to travel.

 Up to date journey information can be found at:

On the roads: www.traffic-wales.com
Rail: www.nationalrail.co.uk
Air: Check with your airline or airport for live travel info.
Ports: Check with your operator for live travel information.

 Our advice to everyone continues to be to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour or activity to the Anti-Terrorism Hotline on 0800 789 321, or in an emergency call 999.  In addition, suspicious activity can be reported online here: https://beta.met.police.uk/tell-us-about/possible-terrorist-activity/report-possible-terrorist-activity/

Chief Supt. Claire Parmenter issued a big thank you to our communities via social media earlier (Facebook | Twitter).
