Looking forward to Pride tomorrow! 🌈❤️🌈

With respect and being all inclusive and all, I would like to see black history month in October and the black community as a whole represented and supported by our police force, not just by an icon, but in uniform too... Mark Drakeford has endorsed this event, so let us celebrate nationally.. This subject might not seem as important to some, but it’s a big deal to others.. #Windrush

❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

I found it annoying when the meaning of the word gay was perverted and now they seem to have taken the word cwtch.

A drug dealer who had more than 1,000 ecstasy tablets has been sentenced to five years and four months in prison. Michael Iannucci, aged 20, of Barry, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply class A drug –MDMA and two counts of offering to supply MDMA. At Cardiff Crown Court today, he was sentenced to five years and four months in a young offender institution.Police received a call on April 20, 2019, in relation to concerns for a 16-year-old who was suspected to have taken ecstasy tablets.The teenager was located and taken to hospital for treatment. Officers attended Phyllis Street, Barry, on April 25, after receiving information that Iannucci had supplied a child in the Vale of Glamorgan area with 16 ecstasy tablets.A search was carried out at the defendant’s home where officers found three shoe boxes underneath his bed.The shoeboxes contained a large quantity of Donkey Kong, Versace and Skull motif tablets.Crystalline substances found to contain MDMA, scales, £1,275 cash and two mobile phones were also found in the defendant’s bedroom.Officers seized 1,400 ecstasy tablets in total:- 533.5 bronze-coloured MDMA tablets in the shape of Donkey Kong - 866.5 green MDMA tablets with a Versace logo The defendant’s mobile phone was examined and found to contain messages offering the supply of class A drugs.Iannucci was also sentenced today after pleading guilty to possession of a disguised firearm and possession of a controlled drug of class A. These charges relate to an incident in December 2018 in High Street, Barry. Iannucci was found in possession of a stun gun/torch device. Detective Inspector Sarah Trigg said: “The amount of drugs seized by officers indicates Iannucci was a multi-commodity drug dealer who was targeting children in the Barry area. By using symbols such as Donkey Kong on drugs, dealers such as Iannucci are deliberately trying to appeal to young people.“Thankfully, the teenager who was hospitalised from taking drugs supplied by the defendant has made a full recovery. Our message is clear – the supply of illegal drugs will not be tolerated and every effort will be taken to bring to justice those responsible for blighting our communities with drugs such as these.”She added: “Class A drugs are, by their very nature, dangerous and unpredictable due to their varying potency and purity. If you have Donkey Kong in your possession, please don't consume it. “Anyone who believes they may have had an adverse reaction, or anyone who falls ill as the result of taking drugs, should seek medical attention as a matter of urgency. Drugs can have a devastating impact and we would urge people to talk to loved ones they believe may be taking them.“The Wales Drug and Alcohol Helpline – 0808 808 2234 – provides a free and bilingual single point of contact for anyone in Wales wanting further information or help relating to drugs or alcohol.“Anyone with any information about the sale of illegal drugs in the area is urged to contact 101. Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously via 0800 555 111.” ... MoreLess

Well done all keep it up

Great news

Well done SWP

Making illegal money and he still can’t make his bed, judge should have given him an extra 5 years for the state of his room.

Steven Jnr

Only serve half of that should be much longer he will no doubt do it again.

Should have had much longer these drugs have killed innocent children! 😠

Not long enough :(

A job well done - get these drugs off the streets 👏👏👏👏👏🙌

Not long enough

Should of used some of his money to sort his gaff out😂😂

Well done swpolice another drug dealer off the street

Maybe they should put donkey kong on vegetables. Donkey kong, that famous 80s arcade game - making everyone who knows It in at least their 30s now.

Not long enough should have had 15yrs you prey on young children and ruined family life

Hi South Wales Police. I was just wondering when your anti corruption department are arresting DC Phil Simmons for his involvement in the case of Richard Diaper. Been as his name was constantly mentioned throughout the trial and there were over 200 calls from him to Rashid Aziz the man who arranged the assault. I think it’s in the public interest for you to answer. You seem keen to boast about how you’re doing so much about corruption in the force so when is he being put on trial?? Oh and I’m not taking about the gross misconduct hearing, I’m talking about the criminal charges that he is currently avoiding by saying he is unfit to be interviewed. Many thanks 👍👍

Well done again SWP 👍people like him are vile targeting children. But the judges do need to give much tougher sentences.

And paedophiles get less time😔

Why the six angry emojis on their updated profile page. Supporting PRIDE once again. Good for them!😚

Why can’t you do anything about cars parking on pavement? Forcing us pedestrians on to busy roads with our young children, prams or wheelchairs??? As a concerned parent and law abiding citizen I want answers.

Happy pride day ❤️🌈💙💚💛

The involvement of South Wales in this event is to promote inclusion and demonstrate our commitment to equality and diversity. We are proud to be part of it like many other events we support. Policing is not a binary service and there are many aspects of it that involve promoting engagement and trust to ensure all communities and people feel confident and able to report crime or ask for our support. We are there for everyone all communities all cultures all faiths And this is a part of us demonstrating that commitment

Why do I always read the comments.

Well done you!

Oh lovely

Thank you for showing solidarity once more! 💙

Well done south Wales police supporting pride weekend...love it xx ❤💛💚💜💙

FANTASTIC 💚💛💜💙❤💋

LOVE IS LOVE 🏳️‍🌈

Love Love Love !

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself." Be proud of who you are. 🌈

Why does every company / organisation have to rainbow in public? Why does a statement like this have to be given? Inclusion is just that, accept people for who they are whatever the race / orientaion / language etc. Why does lbgt stuff need advertising to make it acceptable it should be acceptable. Think this works against lbgt people than for them

Acceptance!

This is a prank right ?😧 I am not against diversity in the workplace and community but please don't trash our police and services with in your face posts they have lost respect from most young people but now will be open to ridicules and jokes

How professional

Jeez... we can see the people here who don't treat people as equals 🙄. Just think yourselves as lucky that you're not targeted for being who you want to be or who you want to be with in life.. 😡😠

I can’t stop laughing at the negative comments about a police Facebook page changing their profile picture to lgbt 🏳️‍🌈 lol 😂 are u seriously that upset 😠 because they have changed there picture I don’t care as long as the streets are safe they can do what they want 😂👊🏻

It’s not about policing or wasting time it’s supporting people who up till the 1960s were classed as deviants and mental unstable. It’s about supporting the fact that we as humans have the right to love who ever we choose regardless of their sex. Its about supporting people in other parts of the world who hide in fear of being outed and imprisoned, shunned by their families or worse killed just for being who they are. It’s just about being human. #loveforall

Honestly, people will find a reason to complain about just about anything. I've read comments about impartiality, agendas etc... how exactly are SWP not being impartial?! Suggesting there is something to be impartial about is to suggest that there are 2 sides, the LGBT+ community being one of them. There is 1 side, and we all belong on it. And if SWP want to show their support to the community, they're hurting exactly no one.

Well done SWP.

South Wales police are a joke myself and my partner have been suffering hate crime for a year and they chose to do nothing about it and still haven’t apparently someone was going to call us and still haven’t when asked to be appointed a hate crimes officer still nothing was done I have lost all faith in Swp never the less happy pride weekend folks and stay safe all 🏳️‍🌈🌈🏳️‍🌈🌈💖💕💖💕

It’s unbelievable in 2019 that people can be triggered by an edited picture, to support another group of people. And then somehow correlate that to crime statistics 🤦🏻‍♂️
