Update on policing Dyfed Powys over the bank holiday weekend as UK threat level reduces from critical to severe.
Assistant Chief Constable Liane James, Dyfed Powys Police said:
“This morning, Prime Minister Theresa May announced that the UK terrorism threat level has been reduced from critical to severe. The change indicates an attack is highly likely, not imminently expected.
“Operation Temperer, which is the deployment of additional officers in Dyfed-Powys will remain in place until the Bank Holiday weekend concludes. This means that the public will continue to see additional overtly armed officers at key locations in Dyfed-Powys over the next few days.
“As we move into next week we will continue to review our deployments to ensure maximum visibility of both armed and unarmed officers across the force area.
“Our priority is to maintain a visible and reassuring presence in our communities, and we are doing all that we can to continue to provide the response our communities would expect in order to keep them safe.
“We ask our communities to be vigilant and to report any concerns they may have to the confidential Anti-Terrorism Hotline on 0800 789321.In an emergency, always call 999.
