MP WELCOMES 14 % DROP IN CRIME IN DYFED-POWYS

Simon Hart MP has welcomed news that crime is falling. 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: 'This is wonderful news for people living in south west Wales, recorded crime is down thanks to the Government's action plan to reduce crime and the hard work of police officers."

The Government is following an action plan to tackle crime by:

Freeing the police to fight crime by cutting red tape and scrapping unnecessary targets2. Giving criminals tougher sentences so communities are protected and justice is done3. Giving the police the powers they need to tackle criminals, using the latest tools and techniques4. Stopping people from becoming criminals by tackling the root causes of crime5. Making the police answer to the community to help drive down crime in your area
