MEMBERS of Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Panel have attended a seminar to find out more about the work of the Commissioner.
Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn held the training day to help the panel, most of which are new members, to be fully briefed on various issues.
They included an overview of the Police and Crime Plan; a presentation by Chief Constable Mark Collins on operational policing; a briefing on financial matters by Chief Finance Officer Jayne Woods; an introduction to commissioned services by Director of Commissioning Alison Perry; and information on scrutiny activity by Compliance Officer Claire Bryant.
Panel Chair Cllr Alun Lloyd Jones said: “It was an extremely useful day, particularly for the new members of the Panel.
“It helps us to do our job in scrutinising the Police Commissioner when we are fully informed.”
Panel members took advantage of the opportunity to ask questions throughout the seminar on the various topics.
Cllr Lloyd Jones added: “Panel members were very interested in the presentations and participated fully in the discussions, it was an interesting seminar which will certainly benefit us in our role.”
