In November 2012, Alun Michael was elected Police and Crime Commissioner for South Wales.  He replaced the previously existing Police Authority.  One of the key duties of the Commissioner is to produce a Police and Crime Reduction Plan, outlining a vision and the key priorities for policing and community safety across the South Wales force area. 

It is the duty of the Commissioner to make sure that the Plan provides clarity and focus for the South Wales Police and for everyone in our area.  This is the first Police and Crime Reduction Plan the Commissioner has issued, and covers the period April 2013 – March 2017. 

Within this plan, Mr Michael outlines his expectations of the Chief Constable and partner agencies in supporting the delivery of the objectives as well as helping to meet their own objectives.

This plan will guide actions in the immediate future, so there is no need for any uncertainty.  But finalising and agreeing this plan is just the start of the process, not the end of it. During the course of 2013  the Commissioner will work with the Chief Constable and with everyone in the Police Service;

-       and with partners in Local Government and Welsh Government

-       and with partners in other public services, particularly the NHS

-       and with the business community

-       and with victims groups and voluntary, community organisations and other interested parties


Mr Michael invites you to comment on the contents of the Plan, along with the priorities and planned outcomes.  He welcomes your views on this to help develop the document.
