Skates goes out and about with local PCSO


* PCSO Karl Joseph with Ken Skates MS in Riverside Park.

Member of the Senedd Ken Skates praised the ‘vital’ link between Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) and residents after meeting Llangollen’s Karl Joseph. 

The Clwyd South MS took a walk around the town with Karl recently to discuss local issues. 

Mr Skates said: “It was great to catch up with Karl and find out about what’s been happening locally. We discussed several areas of concern and a number of issues police have acted upon recently following crucial information from the community.” 

He added: “PCSOs provide a vital link between local communities and police forces, and it was really interesting to have a walk around the town with him and visit local businesses.” 

Mr Skates also said he had written to Denbighshire Council to raise constituents’ concerns over the condition of the old brewery building overlooking the A5 opposite Riverside Park. 

In 2021 the Welsh Government announced an extra £3.7m for more PCSOs across Wales, bringing the total funded by Welsh Ministers to 600. 

PCSO Karl said: “It was a pleasure to spend some time with Ken, and the fact that he has taken the issues on board shows that he actually cares about them.”
