Community officers engage with residents during a successful day of action

2 Sep 2021

Officers and PCSOs from our Bedford Rural and Urban Community Policing teams, supported by the Community Enforcement Team (CET) and Special Constabulary carried out a successful day of action yesterday (Wednesday), which resulted in the seizure of a quantity of drugs and multiple arrests. 

The team organised this day of action in partnership with local Councillor Sarah Gallagher to target issues highlighted by residents as their community priorities.  The day included speed enforcement, proactive patrols and engagement with local businesses and residents.  

A number of stop searches were carried out in the area, which resulted in two community resolutions after two men were found in possession of cannabis.   

Whilst patrolling the area, a vehicle sped off from a marked police van. The vehicle was located shortly after, and a search discovered large amount of class B drugs with an estimated street value of over £2500.  

In addition, officers seized phones, cash, scales and grinders, and other drug paraphernalia.  

The three occupants of the vehicle were arrested on suspicion of drug dealing.  

Further police patrols saw the team locating one stolen vehicle, one vehicle believed to be used in crime, and one believed to be driving on false plates. The stop of the latter resulted in two drug related arrests.  

Sergeant John Killick, who led the team, said: “I am really proud of the officers who took part, and especially PCSO Chloe Dymock who organised this day of action. This day and its success are a perfect example how important it is to work together in partnership to solve the issues that are most important to our communities.  

“The information from our residents helps us better understand the complex problems in our neighbourhoods, and in return we can target those issues to help keep our county safe.”
