efficiently run police service working together to protect people
and fight crime.
Our one and five year plans set out what we aim to deliver
for Our Communities, Our People, Our Partnerships and Our
Productivity and we are constantly monitoring and evaluating our
performance against them.
The aim of Bedfordshire Police, as highlighted in our Control Strategy is to
and at the same time surround our thinking with the College of
Policing’s Code of Ethics and the National Decision making Model to
put victims at the heart of all we do.

maintaining performance by constantly looking for ways to become
