Bedfordshire Police hold Public Meeting in Futures House

A public meeting was recently organised by Bedfordshire police to discuss the current rise in knife crime in Luton. The meeting was attended by over 150 members of the public and highlighted issues concerning knife crime and what the public is expecting from the police.

Assistant Chief Constable, Jackie Sebire said: “We are one piece of the puzzle in terms of driving down knife crime, and we can’t do it alone. Therefore it was really important for us to meet with people from the communities we serve to have a frank and honest discussion about knife crime, which has risen nationally in recent years.

“I’m pleased we were able to speak to people about the work we’re doing to tackle knife crime and how important it is for us to do this.  Even more importantly though, we were able to hear from the public about their thoughts on knife crime, and how we can continue to tackle this. The meeting was incredibly valuable, and we will continue to engage with our communities moving forward.”
