Ystyriwn polisiau ac ymarfer gwaith cyfoes yr heddlu a’r fframwaith statudol y maent yn gweithredu. Trafodir y newid yng nghyd-destun trosedd a chyfiawnder troseddol: eu prif swyddogaethau, yr heddlu a’r cyfryngau; atal trosedd a gweithio mewn partneriaeth; datblygiadau mewn polisi cyffuriau; yr heddlu, trefn gyhoeddus ac iawnderau dynol; asesu cyfrifoldeb, ansawdd a pherfformiad; cyfle cyfartal a rheoli i’r dyfodol.
