Crime & Anti-Social Behaviour

The Parish Council actively encourages residents to report any crimes and antisocial behavior, no matter how small they might seem. This enables the Police to gather accurate statistics and raise awareness to police of local issues. Residents should report urgent matters to 999, other matters through 101 or alternatively use the Beds Police website

You can also make anonymous reports to Crime Stoppers tel 0800 555 111

Bedfordshire Police have launched a policing team called Operation Sentinel, commited to tackling anti-social behaviour.   The team will carry out targeted police patrols in the community, addressing the priority issues that matter most to residents.
