Save our Police Helicopter

Under current plans the Dyfed Powys Police helicopter will be scrapped on the 1st January 2016.

We believe that our police helicopter has played a pivotal role in protecting our communities and saving lives, and must be protected from budget cuts and centralisation.

We call upon the Home Secretary to intervene and protect our dedicated Police helicopter so it can continue to serve our communities and save lives.

    It IS absolutely essential to retain our Police Helicopter due to the extremely large area that Dyfed Powis Police has to cover over extremely difficult terraain impossible to protect the innocent from crime and serious criminals. We have lost the professional monitors of CCTV cameras in our Towns that obtained vital evidence of detecting known criminals,drug dealers and serious assaults.If the evidence is there why take away these vital in the fight against crime?

    The Pembrey base provides a vital service to the West Wales area, given that this was ‘purpose built’ at great cost and yet another would need to be built for the alternative proposed,why close what we already have???? Duuuuugh!

    The Dyfed Powys policing area is so vast that the Helicopter is vital to ensure community safety and to respond to other emergencies where a car is not quick enough.

    Pembrey is the best position for this service and should NOT !! Be lost.

    The Dyfed-Powys area covers around half of Wales and roads tend to be appalling. If any part of mainland Britain needs a police helicopter it is this area. The decision to remove the Dyfed-Powys police helicopter would make more sense if the force had not already faced substantial cuts in so many other areas. This is an essential resource which is valued by the community and cherished by its users.

    We are a rural area & speed is vital for the police to cover such a huge part of Wales. It is a false economy to cut it! We need our helicopter.

    THOSE IN CHARGE NEED THEIR HEADS READ. DYFED POWYS IS THE LARGEST LAND AREA TO COVER IN WALES. THE HELICOPTER IS ESSENTIAL, AS HAS BEEN PROVED MANY TIMES
