Police Open Shared Hub At Toddington

Bedfordshire Police are continuing to demonstrate their commitment to visible policing in the county’s communities with the launch of another policing hub, based in Toddington.

The venture will see police officers sharing the facilities at Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service’s community fire station. It was officially launched on Friday (10 January) by Chief Constable Garry Forsyth and (Temporary) Assistant Chief Fire Officer Andy Peckham.

Bedfordshire Police’s Chief Constable Garry Forsyth, said:
“Sharing office space at Toddington Community Fire Station will enable my officers to be on the beat within the heart of the community, dealing with issues that matter to local people, rather than having to always return to a central base.”

Police also share facilities and office space at fire stations in Leighton Buzzard, Ampthill and Shefford.

Local people should continue to contact police by calling 101, or in an emergency, 999. Alternatively, you can report using the force’s online reporting centre or webchat service
