Community Policing
Posted Tuesday, 7 November 2017 at 16:16

This morning there was a debate in Parliament about community policing. I would have loved to contribute on behalf of Bedfordshire Police but I was chairing the debate and had to remain impartial.

Beds Police have a very effective model of community policing and I was pleased to hear this point being made by Andrew Selous MP, my Parliamentary neighbour in Bedfordshire.

I am continuing to work with our Police and Crime Commissioner, Kathryn Holloway, to press the government for a fairer funding settlement for Beds Police.

Bedfordshire has a complex crime environment, including an international airport and instances of extremism, but we are funded as a small rural force. This cannot continue.

When I’m chairing a debate I cannot take sides. At all other times I will bang the drum for Bedfordshire, including pressing for more money for our hard-working, under-appreciated police force.

Well done to Andrew Selous for making the points I couldn't and representing Bedfordshire in a powerful, thoughtful and concise way!
