Queens Street Day of Action

The Bedford Community Safety Partnership is holding a ‘Day of Action’ on Queens Street on Tuesday 9th August.

It is hoped the day will enable local residents to highlight any issues which are affecting them and help local authorities and other groups to work together in a concentrated effort to improve the quality of life for local people.

The Community Safety Partnership comprises Bedford Borough Council, Bedfordshire Police, NHS Bedfordshire, bpha, Bedfordshire and Luton Fire and Rescue Fire and Rescue Service and Bedfordshire Probation Trust who all work together to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour across the Borough.

The Day of Action will target anti-social behaviour such as littering, dog fouling, graffiti, drug and alcohol misuse and other behaviour which may trouble local residents.

Local police officers will be opening the mobile police station from 8am and free crime prevention advice will be available, along with the opportunity to meet local Neighbourhood Watch co-ordinators, the anti-social behaviour co-ordinator and hate crime co-ordinator.

Officers will also be around in the area doing high visibility patrols in support of Operation Nevis, the summer anti-social behaviour initiative. 

Local residents will also be encouraged to get involved with Neighbourhood Watch and attend a meeting taking place on the 11th August at the Tavistock Centre.

Area Commander Tony Rogers from Bedfordshire and Luton Fire and Rescue Service is the Chair of the Bedford Borough Community Safety Partnership, he said: “These days of action are an excellent example of how local services can work in partnership together to help local communities. 

“Fire service personnel will be in the area to provide fire safety and community safety advice for residents and local businesses, and taking practical steps to help reduce the risk of fire.”
    
Councillor Sarah Jayne Holland, Portfolio Holder for Community and Regulatory Services, said: “This day of action demonstrates just how much we can do when we all work together.

“It also provides an excellent opportunity for a range of different organisations to speak directly to local residents and help tackle the issues that are affecting their lives.”
