A new Deputy Chief Constable has been appointed to run local police services.

Deputy Chief Constable Claire Parmeter has been appointed at Dyfed Powys Police.

“Becoming the Deputy Chief Constable within my home force is a huge privilege for me, I hope this will inspire other officers and staff to achieve whatever they want across the service," she said.

DCC Parmenter, who grew up in Llanelli but now lives in Carmarthen, began her policing career in Ammanford in 1993 having just completed a BA (HONS) degree in Education at Cardiff.

As well as serving in a variety of uniform roles, DCC Parmenter has undertaken a number of secondments across UK Policing and beyond. These include a role as national field officer with the National Policing Improvement Agency, becoming operational Chief Inspector in Avon and Somerset Police, and contributing to the national implementation of neighbourhood policing, for which she received a chief constable’s commendation.

She was promoted to Superintendent in 2010 and became lead for the Joint Emergency Services Group in Wales, leading and developing a number of blue light collaboration and resilience programmes, working closely with Fire and Rescue, Welsh Ambulance Service Trust and Welsh Government.

DCC Parmenter returned to uniformed policing in 2012 and took up the role of Superintendent of specialist operations. She later took over as BCU Commander for Carmarthenshire and Powys, and later took up the post of Chief Superintendent Head of Uniformed Policing for the force. She is an accredited Strategic Firearms and Gold Public order commander and has won a Stonewall National award for her support of LGBT staff.

Chief Constable Mark Collins added: “Claire has shown outstanding commitment to our communities over many years and I am delighted to have her as my Deputy Chief Constable.”
