Importance of reporting drug activity

Alert message sent 08/05/2019 08:47:00

Information sent on behalf of Bedfordshire Police

Good Morning, 

After working with the community team for last 2 years I have noticed that the amount of reporting of suspicious activity around drug use and drug dealing went down, yet whenever I am on the beat people are happy to approach me to tell me about the the issues.
I accept that our 101 system is not the best at the moment however, please rest assured, that our control room colleagues are doing their best to improve it.
You can also report drug use and drug dealing via our online reporting tool on
Most of the acquisition offences (theft, burglary, vehicle thefts) will be committed in order to get enough money for drugs, therefore by taking out the dealers and making your area harder for them to operate you make it safer for yourself and your neighbours.
Any information submitted to us is confidential, and we never release to anyone the source of the information. Also every report is followed up, sometimes by uniformed officers presence, sometimes by officers in plain clothes, therefore please keep reporting the issues every time you see them, as this is paramount for us, the police, to show to the courts the effects of the suspicious activity in your area and thus securing search warrants and closure orders to make your area safer for you.

with kindest regards
