Dyfed-Powys Police covers a population of 520,000. The residential population are spread across an area that is half the land mass of Wales, mainly in small rural communities. There are larger population centres, including Aberystwyth, Brecon and Cardigan.
This is HMIC’s second PEEL (police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy) assessment of Dyfed-Powys Police. PEEL is designed to give the public information about how their local police force is performing in several important areas, in a way that is comparable both across England and Wales, and year on year. The assessment is updated throughout the year with our inspection findings and reports.
The extent to which the force is effective at keeping people safe and reducing crime: not yet graded overall, however one of the four sections of effectiveness has been published. HMIC found that Dyfed-Powys requires improvement at protecting from harm those who are vulnerable, and supporting victims.
The extent to which the force is efficient at keeping people safe and reducing crime requires improvement.
The extent to which the force is legitimate at keeping people safe and reducing crime: not yet graded.
HMIC independently assesses police forces and policing across activity from neighbourhood teams to serious crime and the fight against terrorism – in the public interest.
In preparing our reports, we ask the questions which citizens would ask, and publish the answers in accessible form, using our expertise to interpret the evidence. We provide authoritative information to allow the public to compare the performance of their force against others, and our evidence is used to drive improvements in the service to the public.
There are currently no announced inspections scheduled.
