Report all crime to the police
Please ensure you report all crime - whether your business is targeted or you witness criminal behaviour.
Only if crimes are correctly reported can the police get a full understanding of the provision needed to keep an area safe and reduce crime. If you see anything suspicious or witness a crime please contact Bedfordshire Police on 101 or 999 in the case of emergencies.
