The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) and Chief Constable held a meeting this week as part of the PCC’s statutory oversight and scrutiny of policing in Bedfordshire.
In the recorded meeting, available for public viewing, the PCC raised matters submitted by local residents.
Ahead of the meeting, the PCC received a record amount of questions from the public.
The questions related to different aspects of policing including car meets, victim support, officer retention and community policing.
The meeting also allows the PCC to be provided with updates on force activity.
PCC Festus Akinbusoye said: “Being open and transparent is a key part of my role.
“As part of my role as a PCC, I hold the Chief Constable to account for the efficient and effective delivery of policing on behalf of the public.
“That’s why every six weeks my office ensures my meeting with the Chief Constable is recorded and readily available for the public to watch.
“It is my job to scrutinise the performance of the force with respect to specific functions and duties.
“If you have a question that you’d like me to raise in one of these meetings, please contact my office”.
Please note that these meetings cannot cover all matters discussed due to operational and commercial sensitivities.
