AT its first meeting the new Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Panel has elected a Chair and Vice Chair.
Cllr Alun Lloyd Jones of Ceredigion County Council was unanimously elected as Chair, and co-opted independent member Professor Ian Roffe was chosen as Vice Chair.
A new panel was appointed following the county council elections in May, with Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys nominating councillors to sit on it.
The panel, which was set up to support and scrutinise the Police and Crime Commissioner, meets every three months.
Information about the panel, agendas, meeting dates, membership and news is available on the website at http://www.dppoliceandcrimepanel.org.uk/
The meetings are open to the press and public, and with the prior permission of the Chair, people can ask questions or make a statement in relation to a matter being considered by the panel, with the exception of personnel matters.
Questions can also be submitted to the panel either in writing or via the website contact form.
Can YOU Help?… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
