Community Walkabouts

Throughout the year, the Commissioner visits communities across the South Wales force area, meeting with residents and discussing crime and community safety concerns.  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. 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.
