Many people will look to you for guidance and protection from such experience; to provide this effectively you’ll need to be able to demonstrate confidence, see things from their perspective and tailor your approach to address their particular needs and fears. Our Police Constables are the face and voice of North Wales Police.  They’re on the ground, working in partnership with the public and organisations in making a difference to the local community. They come from varied backgrounds, but are united by the same goal – to keep communities safe.
