Drug dealing

Drugs and drug related crime can have a negative impact on our communities and its use can harm the health and safety of our residents.  

Our officers are committed to tackling drug related issues within Bedfordshire and we welcome any information you may have about drug use or dealing. 

To help keep our communities safe, we encourage you to look out for common signs of drug dealing and let us know if you see anything suspicious. 

Another way professional criminals deal drugs in particular neighbourhoods, known as 'cuckooing'. Cuckooing involves offenders targeting the homes of vulnerable people and using it to deal drugs.

Those who usually become vulnerable to cuckooing are lonely, isolated and drug users themselves. In fact, dealers usually offer them free drugs as a way of getting into the victims home. The property is then used to deal and manufacture drugs for a short period of time before the dealer moves onto somewhere new. 

If you think this may be happening where you live, please get in touch so that we can prevent vulnerable people falling victim to this crime.
