Criminal Justice in Wales took centre stage at Policing Summit in Westminster

Last Updated: 28/11/2023

Commissioner Alun Michael and his Deputy, Emma Wools, were front and centre at the APCC & NPCC Partnership Summit 2023, which was held in the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster earlier this month.

It was an opportunity to showcase the work of Criminal Justice in Wales in front of an audience made up of people working in policing across the UK.

During the 15 minute 'lightning talk' chaired by ITV newsreader Julie Etchingham, they highlighted some of the notable achievements in Wales and explained how true partnership and co-operation between agencies at all governance levels has been key in their approach to enhancing confidence and trust in policing.

PCC Alun Michael was interviewed outside the Conference Centre, saying: "I was really impressed by the speech from Shadow Home Secretary Yvette Cooper, in which she emphasised the importance of neighbourhood policing, and its vital role in problem solving at a local level.

"Her views, of course, very much echoed the sentiments here in South Wales where both myself and Chief Constable Jeremy Vaughan have made a commitment to neighbourhood policing for this very reason.

"It was an excellent opportunity to give people an insight about what we have achieved in Wales, such as the launch and ongoing delivery of our Anti Racism Action Plan.”
