Get Involved

Do you want to get involved in making Bedfordshire an even safer place to live?  There are lots you can do from joining a local Neighbourhood Watch scheme to signing up as a volunteer for Bedfordshire police.  Here are some of the ways you can get involved:


Attend a Local Community Policing Team Meeting or Surgery

By attending a local Community Policing Team meeting you can find out what the police are doing in your area to tackle local priorities and crime.  You can raise any concern you have, suggest what can be done to improve a neighbourhood, find out what the police are doing locally and get advice on how to reduce the risk of crime to you and your property.  To find your local Community Policing Team enter your postcode in the Safer Neighbourhoods search facility on this page.
