Your Opinion Counts

Your opinion Counts

South Wales Police and the Police and Crime Commissioner want to be the best at understanding and responding to the needs of our communities, so we are always keen to hear your thoughts on local policing and the issues that matter to you locally.

This section of the website contains a number of surveys, which will allow us to understand your views and improve the service we provide you.
