About Bedfordshire Independent Advisory Group

Bedford and Luton Independant Advisory Groups (IAGs) were formed in 2001 and Central Bedfordshire IAG in 2010.

They provide an essential input to improving the quality of policing services to all communities. To effectively fight crime and protect the public we need independent advice which improves the accountability of policing through a transparent approach.

In 2015 the IAG was reviewed and restructured with the support of a working party of experienced IAG members. The body now consists of two panels, the North IAG and South IAG.

Strategic Management of the IAG is held by the force Community Cohesion Team – a small team of Officers dedicated to monitoring tension levels and integrating the Police and community.

Both panels act as critical friends to Bedfordshire Police in ensuring that all police services, policies, procedures and practices are free from any kind of direct or indirect discrimination, regardless of age, disability, gender re-assignment, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation. They provide an essential input to improving the quality of policing services to all communities. To effectively fight crime and protect the public we need independent advice which improves the accountability of policing through a transparent approach.
