There have been a series of thefts and opportunist burglaries in our rural communities, in particular in the areas of Hirnant, Llangynog, Penybontfawr and Llansilin with gardening tools and other high value items being targeted. Highly visible and proactive patrols are being undertaken in order to identify/arrest offenders and deter further criminal activity. Llanfyllin Neighbourhood Policing Team are reminding residents to be increasingly vigilant and to report any activity they suspect to be suspicious through 101 or 999.

Much of the Dyfed-Powys Police area is very beautiful, peaceful and idyllic and it covers some very rich and diverse wildlife habitats. However, the area is subject to many pressures not least of which are crimes against wildlife. The responsibility for the enforcement of the laws protecting our wildlife rests with the police service. Examples of wildlife crime could include badger baiting, trapping of live birds, habitat destruction or damage.


As with any type of crime we rely on the assistance of the public and agencies to enable us to detect offences and prosecute offenders. You can help us by being our eyes and ears. Wildlife criminals are often involved in other types of crime. Your call may lead police to uncover all sorts of illegal activity. If you see someone committing wildlife offences, do not put yourself in risk of danger but try to gather as much information as possible particularly vehicle registration numbers and descriptions of those involved.


Please contact us as incidents are taking place via 101 or 999. Try to describe your location the best you can and consider using grid references.

Llanfyllin officers are regularly patrolling the area to identify/arrest offenders and deter further criminal activity. Please ensure that gates are locked and stock regularly checked and counted. Any persons with information on livestock theft should contact 101 or Crimestoppers.
