Police and Crime Commissioner's are elected by the public to hold Chief Constable's and police forces to account. Engagement has a central role to play in helping the Commissioner and his team deliver their responsibilities for the communities of South Wales. We believe it will help to:

Developing good relationships locally is particularly important, especially when the work we do directly involves and affects our communities and on occasion relies on the sustainability of volunteering or campaigning to be championed or led by communities.

As the Police and Crime Commissioner has a duty under the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act to ‘obtain the views’ of the public and victims of crime about matters relating policing, it is important that community links are maintained to enable members of the public to have a voice.

Throughout the year, we regularly meet with local community representatives and groups to understand and address local issues raised. We recognise that this feedback alone cannot represent the views of all communities and therefore organise and attend a number of targeted engagement activities to ensure the communities we serve are provided with equal opportunities to be heard.

The Commissioner has also endorsed the ‘National Principles for Public Engagement in Wales’. These principles aim to encourage good quality and consistent engagement activity with the public. You can find out more about these principles here
