Police and Crime Panel seeks public views on anti-social behaviour

THE Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Panel is seeking information about people’s experience and perceptions of anti-social behaviour.

The Panel has published a public survey asking people to tell them about incidents they have been involved in, or know about through family or friends, and how they feel the issues were dealt with by Police.

Panel members, representing the four local authorities in the force area, have a duty to hold the Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn to account.

Feedback from the survey will be collated and put to the Commissioner at a future Panel meeting.

Anti-Social Behaviour is defined in law as behaviour that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as the perpetrator.

The survey seeks to find examples of anti-social behaviour that have occurred over the last 12 months, and asks people if they know who is responsible for dealing with such issues.

It also seeks to gauge the level of public satisfaction with the way authorities are dealing with anti-social behaviour.

Panel Chair, Cllr Alun Lloyd Jones, said: “We are keen to focus on this area of crime and question the Commissioner about his priorities for dealing with an issue that can cause misery and distress to many people.”

The survey can be found on the Dyfed Powys Police and Crime Panel website, at www.dppoliceandcrimepanel.wales
