Commissioner Christopher Salmon on Dyfed-Powys Police changes

Nearly 120 jobs could be lost by Dyfed-Powys Police as it aims to reduce its budget by £11.5m by 2017.

The plan includes a reshaping of professional support services currently delivered by a civilian workforce of 823.

It aims to improve and maintain frontline policing in Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys.

Union Unison said they would engage with the force to mitigate against any compulsory redundancies.

BBC Wales asked Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner Christopher Salmon how some jobs could change to improve efficiency.
