Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good Morning.

I am emailing you all to inform you that the Bedfordshire Police Community Policing Team will be conducting a Operation Highgate in Bedford Town Centre this Friday 22nd June 2018.
Resources daily by a portion of the Community Team, on Friday we will be utilising the whole community team to have a larger positive impact.
Operation High Gate is the Bedfordshire Police response to on-going Begging, Street drinking and Low level crime in the Town Centre area of Bedford. This relates to the anti-social behaviour problems caused by the street drinking, drug taking and begging in the busy town centre area of Bedford, localised with in the Pedestrianized and Retail area of the town. Due to this it has caused feelings of tension and annoyance from both the members of the public and the businesses’ situated in this area and has led to repeated calls to Bedfordshire Police to deal with this Community Priority Issue (CPI).
This behaviour is identified as largely a day time issue, often leading to the late evening and Night Time Economy seven days a week. the Police are taking a pro-active approach to both protect vulnerable people and fight crime together, with strong support from partner agencies.
Bedfordshire Police will deal with this by taking a multi-agency, problem solving approach. We work with the public and our partners to address identified issues.
The anti-social behaviour associated with street drinking in the busy town centre has been identified as a Community Priority Issue (CPI)
A problem solving approach is being implemented with partners and public support.
Supporting Multi-Agency partnership working with direction and support for those in need
Operation High Gate response will aim to assist those affected by offering support where required and enforcement when appropriate.

we will have a crime prevention stall int he town centre also offering support and advice on a wide variety of topics.

Kind Regards
