Both police and politicians commit to act in the interest of the communities they serve. They share many of the same goals and are grappling with many of the same issues so it is vital they work closely together.

Darren said “Spending time with Bedfordshire Police on the front-line was a great opportunity to better understand local challenges and issues. I saw at first hand the professionalism, hard work and dedication of the Police Response Team. Their work is crucial to keep the public safe whether dealing with complex crimes or helping local vulnerable people.”

At a time of stretched resources and increasingly complex demands it was helpful to speak with Police Inspector Sarah Livingstone and find out more about the Bedfordshire Police priorities – See Control Strategy 2018/19.
