Local MP Simon Hart has welcomed news that crime in Carmarthenshire has fallen.
Latest figures from the independent Office for National Statistics show that since 2010 recorded crime in Dyfed-Powys has fallen by 14 %.
Mr Hart said: "Thanks to the hard work of Dyfed-Powys police officers recorded crime is down a significant amount and families are safer. This has not been an easy time for the police, so these results are especially welcome"
The Government's action plan on reducing crime includes:
Freeing the police to fight crime by cutting red tape and scrapping unnecessary targets
Giving criminals tougher sentences so communities are protected and justice is done
Giving the police the powers they need to tackle criminals, using the latest tools and techniques
Stopping people from becoming criminals by tackling the root causes of crime
Helping the police answer to the community which in turn helps drive down crime.
