Dyfed-Powys Police have appointed their first female chief officer.

Jackie Roberts has replaced Andy Edwards as the force's deputy chief constable.

He has left to head the all Wales collaboration programme, which is developing closer ties between Wales' four forces.

Ms Roberts began her career with South Wales Police before moving to Avon and Somerset Constabulary, where she is an assistant chief constable.

She said: "I am absolutely delighted with my appointment and am very pleased to be coming back to Wales.

"Dyfed-Powys Police is a first class, progressive organisation which has its communities at the heart of policing and I very much welcome the opportunity of being part of its future."
