Lowering Crime

Pembrokeshire has one of the lowest crime rates in the UK thanks to an excellent team of local police officers, PCSOs and Dyfed Powys’ first ever directly elected Police and Crime Commissioner, Chris Salmon. Stephen wants it to stay that way.

Crime fell across the country in 2013. In West Wales crime fell by 7% making Pembrokeshire the safest area to live in the UK.

Stephen has fought for fairer funding for the local police to ensure that they can work effectively across a large rural area. He regularly accompanies the police on Saturday night-shifts to learn more about the challenges facing local police and PCSOs as well as hosting joint surgeries with PSCOs in some of the major towns.
