About Us

Bedfordshire Police is dedicated to "protecting people and fighting crime together". This community messaging system is focused on working with the community of Bedfordshire to raise awareness of the work we do, as well as keep you informed of crimes in your area.

We cover 477 square miles, serve a population of around 550,000 and employ in the region of 1,450 Police Officers, 1,196 police staff and 40 Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs).

We are also fortunate to have the support of many dedicated volunteers, including 58 Special Constables, who play a major role in helping to police Bedfordshire.

Bedfordshire is a county of contrasts and we work hard to provide a service which meets the needs of all sections of our extremely diverse community, where more than 80 different languages are spoken. We serve large towns with busy shopping centers and vibrant night-time economies, along with rural areas dotted with picturesque villages and hamlets.
