Annual report 2020 – 2021

My annual report sets out how I have delivered against the priorities in my Police and Crime Plan.

It is an important document which is scrutinised independently by the Gwent Police and Crime Panel to ensure that I am doing an efficient and effective job on behalf of the public.

The impact of Covid-19 throughout the 2020/21 financial year was substantial. Inevitably, this had a significant impact on how my office and I undertook our roles and upon what we focused our efforts. It inevitably led to much of our planned work being done in different ways, as efforts were rightly focused on enabling Gwent Police to respond as efficiently and effectively as possible to the disruption caused by the pandemic.

However, despite these challenges, we still delivered, supported or scrutinised substantial pieces of work and reacted quickly to the constantly changing environment caused by Covid-19. I am incredibly proud of how flexible and resilient both my team and Gwent Police have been in adapting to the changes required to respond to Covid-19 and enable recovery.
