Community Policing - North


Superintendent Julia Pink is the newly appointed lead for community policing for the north of the county, including Bedford, Biggleswade and Ampthill.


Her dedicated team are currently tackling a number of issues that they know cause some of the biggest concerns for our communities. These include street drinking in Bedford town centre and the associated anti-social behaviour, as well as speeding vehicles in rural locations.


Superintendent Pink says: “We will prioritise our protection of those who are the most vulnerable in our communities and proactively target criminals, particularly those who reoffend.  I am committed to communicating with people who both live and work in and visit Bedfordshire to understand and respond to concerns.  We will work together with our partners and community groups to gather information to provide the best response we can.”


Chief Inspector Nick Lyall was appointed as deputy head of community policing for the north of the county in April 2016.


He says: “I’m committed to community policing, ensuring that we work in partnership to solve locally identified problems and tackle rural crime issues. I strive to provide a visible presence and work in partnership to build stronger confidence in the local communities.”
