What is transparency

Openness and transparency

At Bedfordshire Police, we place Openness and Transparency at the heart of the force, not least because we believe in the importance of being understood, being identifiable and being clear about what we do and how we do it. But also because of the value we place on policing legitimately, with the consent of those we serve.

This is reflected in our Values, which influence our way of thinking, working and delivering:

Professional, Fair and Friendly

We appreciate the value in working with communities and partners to support delivery of Our Purpose to protect people and fight crime together; and we know that in order to do this effectively we must better understand the issues affecting our communities, and our communities must better understand the work of the force.

We are always looking for new and innovative ways to provide our communities with a better insight into the challenges we face, the work we do and the way in which we protect the people of Bedfordshire.
