Inspector Paul Thomas
I am the Inspector for the Porthcawl area, which covers the wards of Newton, Rest Bay, Porthcawl East, Porthcawl West, Nottage, Pyle, Cefn Cribwr and Cornelly. The area is a popular and vibrant seaside town, which hosts thousands of holiday-makers and day trippers during the summer months and other school holiday periods, along with other popular attractions throughout the year.
There are two dedicated Neighbourhood Policing Teams throughout Porthcawl and Pyle.
The Porthcawl Neighbourhood Policing Team patrol their respective area with a great enthusiasm and commitment. Their priority is to link in with residents and visitors to the community, so that they can identify and deal with local issues that are impacting on the public’s quality of life. As part of this, both teams work with residents to address local issues identified through PACT meetings.In addition, all officers are supported by the ‘Porthcawl Neighbourhood Support Team’. This team is specifically dedicated to solving ongoing community issues, so that any long-term issues that are disturbing residents can be resolved.
Our number one priority is to protect the Porthcawl and Pyle area communities, so that they remain safe places to live, work and visit, free from crime, drugs and antisocial behaviour.
