Dear L. A. Jourdan

The Police and Crime Panel is not a part of the Police Force and I am therefore unable to answer your questions. The Police and Crime Panel exists to hold the elected Police and Crime Commissioner to account over pledges made in her Police and Crime Plan.

May I suggest that you submit your request directly to the Bedfordshire Police Force?

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
