Bedfordshire’s newly elected Police and Crime Commissioner John Tizard officially stepped into the role today (Thursday 9 May).

John met his team and the Bedfordshire Police Chief Constable Trevor Rodenhurst at the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner (OPCC) offices.

The new Commissioner was elected by the people of Bedfordshire after residents voted him into office on 2 May 2024, with the official announcement from the Police Area Returning Officer, Robin Porter, the following day.

John said “I am privileged to have been elected to serve as Bedfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner for the next four years.

“I am wholly committed to championing the interests of residents, victims of crime, and communities across our county and ultimately keeping Bedfordshire safe.

“It is time for change with a new approach and mission and I look forward to meeting with many of you over the coming weeks and months as I develop my new Police and Crime Plan”.

Mr Rodenhurst said “I’m delighted to welcome John into the role. Together, we can build on the foundations that have been laid here in Bedfordshire, to strengthen the trust and confidence that local people have in their police.

“I look forward to working with the Commissioner and our partners to tackle more crime, reduce offending, and ensure Bedfordshire is a safe place for all communities”.

As well as having held leading roles in numerous businesses, charities, and public sector organisations, John has also served as a councillor and a leader on the former Bedfordshire County Council.
