South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies paid a visit to South Wales Police Headquarters in Bridgend this week – as part of the force’s #GiveADayToPolicing initiative.
Police forces across the UK have been running the scheme – with the aim of providing representatives with hands on experiences of the vital role the police play in local communities.
As well as meeting with Chief Constable Matt Jukes and Assistant Chief Constable Jeremy Vaughan – Mr Davies also paid a visit to the force’s call and control room – led by Superintendent Andy Kingdom.
Sergeant Andy Patterson then gave Mr Davies a tour of both the Dog Section and Mounted Section.
Mr Davies said, “The police play a vital role in keeping us and our communities safe – and it was great to have the opportunity to spend a day out with the force in South Wales.
“The ‘Give A Day To Policing’ initiative is a great way to help us learn more about the day to day operations of the police – and the challenges they encounter.
“I’d like to thank Chief Constable Jukes and the whole team for being so generous with their time – and for putting themselves on the line to stop crime across South Wales.”
