Read about the force area…
- The force is responsible for policing more than half the land mass of Wales, with over 350 miles of coastline.
- The area is primarily rural and the principal towns are Llanelli and Carmarthen.
- The large geographical area can pose a challenge to police, as specialist officers are spread thinly and officers may have to travel relatively lengthy distances, on rural roads, to reach isolated communities.
- An annual influx of tourists in the summer to areas such as Pembrokeshire places demands on police in the towns and villages.
- Dyfed-Powys Police collaborates with other Welsh forces on aspects of policing, including serious and organised crime.
