The Police and Crime Commissioner, Alun Michael, is supported by a small team of officers, who assist in fulfilling his duties.
In November 2016 Emma Wools was appointed as Deputy Commissioner on secondment from the National Offender Management Service in Wales (NOMS), which was ratified by the South Wales Police and Crime Panel on the 18th October 2016. This appointment meets the legal requirement for this role and fills the gap left by the previous permanent Deputy Commissioner, Sophie Howe, who has become the first Future Generations Commissioner for Wales.
