Dyfed–Powys Police

A Brief History of the Dyfed–Powys Police

Dyfed–Powys Police (Heddlu Dyfed–Powys in Welsh) is the territorial police force responsible for policing the Counties of Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire (these made up the former administrative area of Dyfed) and the unitary authority of Powys (covering the Counties of Brecknockshire, Radnorshire and Montgomeryshire), in Wales. The territory it covers is the largest police area in England and Wales, and the third largest in the United Kingdom, after Police Scotland and the Police Service of Northern Ireland. The force's headquarters are located in the town of Carmarthen.

The force was formed in 1968, with the merger of the Carmarthenshire and Cardiganshire Constabulary, Pembrokeshire Constabulary and the Mid Wales Constabulary.

The Dyfed–Powys region has over 350 miles of coastline and many remote rural communities. It also has a number of old industrial areas that are currently experiencing significant change and redevelopment, adding to the pressures of modern day policing

The area has a small population of under 500,000, although it is boosted each year with large numbers of tourists.
The small population is reflected in the size of the Dyfed-Police force; 1,159 full-time police officers, 98 Special Constables and 140 Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs), 38 designated officers and 589 police staff.

It is the eleventh smallest police force in the United Kingdom in terms of number of police officers.
