Community walkabouts provide the Commissioner with an opportunity to understand how specific crime and safety issues impact on communities and what people feel about the policing response
Most recently, the Commissioner has met with residents and businesses in Pontypridd and Maesteg in response to increased incidents of anti-social behaviour, and has spoken to community members in Butetown following a number of knife crime incidents.
Feedback captured from residents during the course of the walkabouts has included concerns about a lack of police visibility, general deterioration in behaviour around town centres and visible consumption of drugs and alcohol in daytime hours. The majority of residents who spoke to us were positive about South Wales Police and said that they felt the police had done a “good job” in responding to incidents and felt “happy” with the service they had received.
Following each walkabout, the Commissioner meets with the local neighbourhood policing team to discuss the feedback captured from residents and escalates any issues as appropriate.
