Police and
Crime Commissioner

The job of the Police and Crime Commissioner is to be the public's voice when it comes to policing Bedfordshire, setting your priorities for the Chief Constable and Force to deliver in a strategic plan and holding the Chief Constable to account.

I am responsible for directing the spending of the £100M budget and for supporting the Victims of Crime and increasing your security as a result of the grants I distribute to partner agencies through the Community Safety and Victim Support funds.

You can find out more about me,
Kathryn Holloway, and my plan in the sections K Holloway and Police and Crime Plan above.

Bedfordshire's Police and
Crime Plan

My Police and Crime Plan sets the strategy for the Chief Constable and Force over the next year. My key aims are:-

Priority 1 -  A return of more visible Community Policing across the County.

Priority 2 - To re-build public confidence in Bedfordshire Police.

Priority 3 - To ensure that the police are available when we need them most.

Priority 4 - To put victims at the centre of the way we police and prosecute.

Priority 5 - A fair deal on policing wherever you live - in the town or country.

Priority 6 - Protecting the police to protect the public with a proper duty of care.

Priority 7 - Genuinely being a Commissioner for all communities.

Priority 8 - Working with partners to break the cycle of serial offending and to prevent crime where possible.
