Bedfordshire Police celebrates the Luton Mela

SGT James HartOfficers celebrated the Luton Mela alongside community members in the town’s Wardown Park over the weekend (5-6 August).

The two-day festival celebrating music, art and culture was attended by Bedfordshire Police to meet residents and listen to their concerns, as part of the force’s commitment to understanding issues which matter to communities most.

Children – and grown-ups too – had an opportunity to dress up as police officers and take a picture with our teams and our Chief Constable Jon Boutcher, while our recruitment team was also available to talk about career opportunities within the force. Luton Mela Boutcher

Community South Chief Inspector Hob Hoque said: “The Luton Mela is strongly embedded in Luton’s cultural calendar and grows bigger year on year. Our force has always strongly supported the event, which celebrates the vibrant and diverse cultures of our county.

“I am proud of our communities coming together in harmony and celebrating the event in a joyful and safe atmosphere. I would like to thank the organisers of Luton Mela, their sponsors and partners for organising this amazing event. Thank you for making it another memorable event.”
