Dyfed-Powys national child protection inspection

Published on: 17 February 2015

Publication types: Child protection

Police Forces: Dyfed-Powys


Protecting children is one of the most important tasks the police undertake. Only the police can investigate suspected crimes, arrest perpetrators and monitor sex offenders. Police officers have the power to take a child who is in danger into a place of safety, or to seek an order to restrict an offender’s contact with children. The police service also has a significant role working with other agencies to ensure the child’s protection and well-being, longer term.

This inspection examined child protection in Dyfed-Powys Police in October 2014. It is part of a rolling programme of inspections of all police forces in England and Wales.
