Tackling Illegal Drugs across Dyfed Powys

The Police and Crime Commissioner for Dyfed Powys has commissioned a piece of work to be conducted by his office, looking into the way in which Illegal Drugs are being tackled across Dyfed Powys. This piece of work will conclude with the presentation of a report to the PCC’s executive team, as well as to the Chief Officer Team within Dyfed Powys Police, with a view of testing whether the way in which resources are used to address illegal drug use is as effective as it could be.

Part of this work will look to gain the views of certain groups of individuals including service users, youth engagement, as well as wider public engagement. In order for this survey to receive as many submissions as possible, I have included the links below to both the English and Welsh versions of the public consultation survey and I would be grateful if you would be kind enough to circulate this within your networks. There are very few questions and therefore is not a lengthy survey to complete, but will give an important view of the public on how prevalent illegal drugs are in their communities and how this affects them.
