Domestic Abuse awareness

In Dyfed-Powys police we have identified that our reports of domestic abuse are higher during the summer than any other time of year. Visitor numbers throughout summer month’s increase within Dyfed-Powys and this will inevitability impact upon us.

In response to this throughout August and September we will be running a force wide operation, Op Heirloom. Some of the aims of the operation are to:

  • Safeguard the community and protect those most vulnerable.
  • Hold perpetrators accountable at every opportunity.
  • Protect Victims & Children from serious harm

Neighbourhood policing teams will raise awareness of the subject within our communities.

We will support this making it a priority for the period. Our Neighbourhood policing team will be visiting campsites, tourist attractions and the night-time economy, to talk to people about domestic abuse.

As well as talking to people about domestic abuse we have specially trained domestic abuse officers and staff working in the background targeting known offenders and protecting vulnerable people using all the powers available to them.

This includes disclosures through a scheme called Clare’s Law. It allows victims or potential victims of domestic abuse to be made aware of a partner’s violent past.

SIGNS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE

  • Domestic abuse is not only violence. It can be physical, sexual, emotional or financial abuse, threats and causing damage to property. These are all ways of controlling someone

 

  • One partner seems afraid of the other, or very anxious to please him or her

 

  • One partner often criticises or humiliates the other in front of other people

 

  • You can see physical injuries (bruises, broken bones, sprains, cuts etc) and may have been given unlikely explanation for their injuries

 

  • One partner is reluctant to leave children with the other partner.

 

ADVICE FOR PEOPLE WHO WITNESS DOMESTIC ABUSE

  • To report domestic abuse call police on 101. If you’re reporting to police as abuse is happening call 999 for an immediate response.

 

  • Don’t be afraid to report anything that concerns you. It’s not interfering and could really help someone at risk of domestic abuse

 

  • Your phone call or support could make a real difference.

 

SUPPORT FOR VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE

Halloween and Bonfire celebrations

 

During the Halloween and Bonfire celebrations, officers are increasing in their communities to reassure people and to enable us to react quickly to anyone who uses Halloween or bonfire night as an excuse to commit anti-social behaviour.

 

Some of our residents do worry when trick or treaters knock the door. While we do not want to spoil people’s enjoyment, we also don’t want it to get out of hand and cause people to feel threatened in their own home.

 

 

Halloween

 

Trick or treating advice includes:

  • Always go with an adult
  • Only go to houses where you or your friends know the people and know you are welcome
  • Only go to houses displaying the ‘trick or treaters’ welcome poster
  • Don’t talk to strangers
  • Don’t enter the house always stay on the doorstep

 

 

 

Bonfire Celebrations

 

The 5th November - Bonfire Night also known as Guy Fawkes or Firework Night is another chance to enjoy a party or to go to an organised firework display.

 

The fire service has asked that we emphasise that an organised display is the safest way to enjoy fireworks. They are also lots of fun!!

 

 

 

Stay safe on Firework Night

 

  • Stand well back from bonfires and fireworks
  • Never play with fireworks or go near a firework once lit
  • Never put fireworks in your pocket
  • Wear gloves. It’s safer if you are given a sparkler!
  • Never touch a sparkler that has gone out – it could still be VERY hot!

                                

Always make sure your pets are safe at home in a quiet place.

They can be very frightened by the noise and could be injured by bonfires and fireworks.

 

 

 

Stay safe and enjoy an organised display with your family!

Chief Inspector Rhiannon Ivens said: “We’re looking forward to opening our doors to visitors for Brecon Police Station’s Open Day on Saturday, July 7.

“Holding an open day will provide an informal way for people to come and meet officers and staff, get a behind the scenes look at policing and build positive relationships with their local policing team.

 “It will allow visitors to meet their local police team, get some crime prevention advice and have a say on where we should be focussing our future patrols in the town.
