Protecting People and Fighting Crime Together 

Our vision is to be a well-respected, high-performing, 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 protect:


Against violence
Against disorder


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.


Financially these are challenging times, but we are committed to maintaining performance by constantly looking for ways to become more efficient and effective at what we do.


This has included the role out of mobile data devices like lap tops and wireless routers, meaning police officers are visible and on the street longer rather than returning to station to complete routine paperwork.


Our efforts to save time and increase transparency of process has been improved further still with the issue of body worn video cameras to all front line officers and we continue to seek other digital first solutions to assist our performance.


You can be assured we are committed to reducing levels of crime, overall threat and harm by Organised Crime Groups and the Impact of gang-related activity.
In addition you can be sure our focus is on increasing victim satisfaction and the level of under-reported crime.
