Hundreds join rural policing survey in Dyfed-Powys area

More than 860 people in the Dyfed-Powys Police area have responded to a six-week public consultation on rural policing.

The survey will play a part in rural policing plans for the force which covers 52% of Wales' land mass.

The consultation was launched last month at the Royal Welsh Show and ends on 31 August.

Police and crime commissioner Christopher Salmon said he wanted as many people as possible to have a say.

"I'm determined to gather as much public opinion as possible in order to shape our policing services of the future," he said.

"Dyfed-Powys has the most rural police service in England and Wales so we need to be the country's experts in rural policing."

Mr Salmon, who was elected to his post last November, added: "Through September the job will be to analyse the information with the intention of having some proposals to take forward at the end of the month.

"Other proposals and action points will follow over time."

Residents can complete the survey online by visiting the force website or by requesting a paper version of the form by phoning 01267 226440.
