South Wales Police have announced that specialist police officers will be patrolling Swansea’s beaches and parks this Summer to provide ‘reassurance’ to residents and visitors.

The police say these officers will be carrying out overt operations to identify anyone who may be displaying signs of concerning or predatory behaviour.

The officers will be working alongside uniformed colleagues, who will intervene and take positive action to discourage the behaviour.

Detective Inspector Carl Morris explains: “This initiative is focusing on events running in Swansea as well as beach and park locations. It’s been arranged in order to ensure that anyone visiting these areas in Swansea during the summer months can have an enjoyable time, without the fear of being subjected to unwanted behaviour.

“By using specialist officers we are able to identify any concerning behaviour first hand and intervene quickly.

“I would like to provide reassurance that the likelihood of becoming a victim of any type of unwanted behaviour, whether that be of a sexual or physical nature, is incredibly low, but that does not limit the harm done on those occasions when such crimes do take place.

“We are taking these steps in order to provide greater reassurance to the public and to prevent incidents developing and occurring. South Wales Police is committed to making Swansea safer and this is just one way in which we are working to tackle any concerning or predatory behaviour.”
