Volunteers Week 2024

Celebrating Volunteers' Week: Join Us in Making a Difference

In celebration of Volunteers' Week from 1st-7th June 2024, Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn is proud to recognise and promote the diverse volunteer schemes that support him with his assurance and scrutiny activity. Each group plays a vital role in supporting our policing efforts, while our dedicated volunteers serve in various capacities, including:

Youth Ambassadors: Empowering young voices to influence policing policies, Youth Ambassadors engage with their peers to gather insights and feedback, ensuring that young people’s perspectives are considered in decision-making processes.

Victim Engagement Forum: This forum provides a platform for victims of crime to share their experiences and feedback, helping to shape victim services and ensure that their voices are heard, and their needs are met.

Quality Assurance Panel: Members review police services to ensure high standards are maintained. This panel scrutinises various aspects of police work, providing recommendations for improvements and holding the force accountable.

Independent Custody Visitors: Volunteers visit police custody suites to check on the welfare of detainees, ensuring that their rights are upheld and that they are treated with respect and dignity.

Animal Welfare Visitors: These volunteers oversee the treatment of police animals, ensuring that they are cared for properly and that their welfare needs are met.

Custody Independent Scrutiny Panel: This panel enhances transparency in custody procedures by reviewing practices, identifying areas for improvement, and ensuring that detainees’ rights are protected.


Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn said “Volunteers play an important role in supporting me with my assurance and scrutiny activity Their dedication and commitment help us to build trust and improve our services.
