DYFED-POWYS Police has revealed that from this week, the opening hours at a number of its stations will be changing.

The force has made the change to ‘make best use of resources to deliver an effective public service that continues to meet the needs and expectations of communities and will improve the availability of front counter services, making opening hours much clearer.’

From Monday, October 2, there will be a face-to-face service between 8am and 12pm and 12.30pm and 4pm, Monday to Friday at the following Carmarthenshire and Powys stations:

  • Ammanford
  • Carmarthen
  • Dafen
  • Llanelli town centre
  • Brecon
  • Llandrindod Wells
  • Newtown

It comes as part of a wider change programme in the police force, where policing and the service to communities is set to be improved with officers and staff having access to estates, technology and equipment in an easier way.

When the change comes into effect, the same services will be available and members of the public will still be able to visit the nearest station to process a shotgun license application, report a crime or intelligence, produce legal documents or request advice.
