Community policing

Community Policing is at the heart of everything that Bedfordshire Police does to Protect the Public and Fight Crime. We have enjoyed considerable successes in driving down recorded crime levels across Bedfordshire whilst making significant improvements to the amount of crime that we detect. In order to maintain that momentum, and to ensure any victims of crime get the best possible service, we will continue to review our policing model to provide a service to be proud of.


Our fight against criminality and anti-social behaviour will see us actively target those in the community who cause the most harm and distress. We will maintain a geographic footprint across the county with teams of police officers and community officers working  closely together to solve the issues of concern at a local level.
