Dafydd Llywelyn’s extensive experience working within criminal justice and the police makes him an excellent candidate for the role of Police and Crime Commissioner in Dyfed Powys.
Dafydd currently lectures in Criminology at Aberystwyth University. Prior to this he worked as the Principal Crime and Intelligence Analyst for Dyfed Powys Police Force.
During his career with Dyfed Powys Police he managed a team of analysts and researchers that supported the Police in all aspects of their work.
In 2012 he played a critical role in the re-structuring of the intelligence resources within the force that included the implementation of a new computerised system.
The system was nominated for an ‘Innovation Nation’ Award sponsored by the Guardian newspaper.
Dafydd has received two Chief Constable Commendations for his work as an analyst that included co-ordinating resources during a ‘cold-case’ review of a murder and for presenting evidence at Crown Court.
During the thirteen years working for Dyfed Powys Police he gained the respect of Police officers and colleagues.
Dafydd says: “The policing and criminal justice system in Dyfed Powys is under attack from the Conservative UK Government, and the current Police and Crime Commissioner is more concerned with appeasing his party colleagues than prioritising the communities of Dyfed Powys.
“It’s time we had an experienced Police Commissioner who will prioritise our communities.”
