Dafydd Llywelyn

Candidate for Dyfed-Powys Police

Dafydd Llywelyn has been Police and Crime Commissioner for Dyfed-Powys Police since 2016 and was re-elected in 2021.

Dafydd worked within Police Intelligence for several years before becoming a Criminology lecturer at Aberystwyth University. He has almost a quarter of a century of experience in policing, and his career has given him a thorough insight and understanding of policing matters.

In addition to his role as Commissioner, he has been the Chair of Policing in Wales, and is involved with Police Digital Services, the All Wales Criminal Justice Board, the Policing Board for Wales and the National Rural Crime Network.

During his time as PCC, Dafydd Llywelyn has increased the number of Police Officers by 200 more officers, invested in a modern CCTV, a new sustainable Policing Hub and Custody Suite and a Town Centre Police Constable role. These measures aim to make the public feel safe, increase opportunities to feed in and connect with the police force in the area, and to modernise the police force.

Under his leadership as PCC, Dyfed-Powys Police has established a single point of access for support services, as well as establishing a Rural Crime Team to coordinate Farmwatch and Horse Watch schemes to provide rural crime prevention advice.
