Fighting crime, protecting the public
Bedfordshire is third smallest force in England and Wales, and combines a tight-knit, ‘family’ feel with the opportunity to be part of challenging police work.
Because Bedfordshire is a compact county, all policing locations are ‘close to home’. Yet there’s a variety of communities, with two major urban centres (Luton and Bedford), smaller towns (such as Biggleswade, Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard), and many rural areas. We also police a busy international airport (London Luton).
This variety makes Bedfordshire an attractive place to live and work. Yet we’re only 30 miles from London, with excellent public transport links to the capital and beyond.
Whether you join us in a police or staff role, you’ll be helping to make your county a safer place. Along with great job satisfaction, you’ll benefit from camaraderie, good communications among colleagues and the clear support of senior management. Both officers and staff thrive on wide-ranging career development with excellent training and opportunities.
What’s more, we take diversity and inclusion seriously. Bedfordshire is one of England’s’ most ethnically diverse counties and we want to ensure our workforce represents the communities and cultures we serve. In addition, we are a top-100 organisation in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index and have a bronze award from an Employers’ Forum for Disability benchmarking exercise.

Bedfordshire Police recognise that you are unique and we want to use your uniqueness to help us to reflect the communities we serve. We know that valuing the difference between people and the benefits that can be gained from those differences is what is going to take us from being good at what we do to being great so we are actively seeking to identify the widest pool of candidates from the widest mix of cultures, approaches and thinking. We want to understand you better so we will be happy to address any queries or concerns you might have.
