Since being elected as a Councillor in 2011, I have been at the forefront of the campaign for better Policing for Leighton Buzzard and Linslade. After years of lobbying both Labour and Conservative PCCs, we are seeing some progress, with additional officers promised within the coming months.
However, I will not stop there. We were promised a ‘police counter’ where local residents could meet face-to-face with officers; we do not have this yet. I will continue to lobby the PCC until we have this.
Much was made of the increased funding for Bedfordshire Police – but most of this money is coming from YOUR pockets.
I want to see Leighton Buzzard getting a fair share of Police resources – I want to see a permanent Police presence and officers dedicated to Leighton Buzzard and Linslade.
