Our People 

Join Us and Make a Difference

Working for Bedfordshire Police is an incredible challenge, but incredibly rewarding too. The range of roles available in policing is vast and the opportunities are endless.


Our purpose is protecting people and fighting crime together. We emphasise ‘together’, since it highlights that everyone has a part to play, regardless of whether you are applying to be an officer, staff member, PCSO, paid intern, Cadet, Special or volunteer. We work together as a team, as well as working with our communities and partners to solve local issues.


Our vision is to be a well-respected, high performing and efficiently run police service working together to protect people, fight crime and keep Bedfordshire safe.


Our values are very important to us and influence the way we think and deliver. As as POLICE service we are Professional, Open, Legitimate, Innovative, Collaborative and Empowering.


Our culture supports our workforce to be community-focussed, courageous in the face of challenge, flexible, proud and resourceful.


As an early adopter of the College of Policing’s Code of Ethics, all those working for Bedfordshire Police will be expected to demonstrate accountability; selflessness; fairness; objectivity; openness; honesty; respect and integrity.


We like, where possible, to recruit local people, with local knowledge, so we can increasingly reflect the wonderfully diverse communities we serve. For this reason we are very respectful of religious observance.


If you think you are up to the challenge of delivering our purpose, our vision and our values, and share our passion for making a positive difference in society, we welcome your application.
