Policing Minister on his first official visit to Bedfordshire Police

Bedfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Kathryn Holloway, and Chief Constable, Garry Forsyth, welcomed Policing Minister, Kit Malthouse, to Police Headquarters today (Wednesday 12 August) to meet with front line officers and celebrate outstanding results of operations against gang, gun and knife crime and drug and weapons seizures on the day the force received a major award for its effective approach to efficiency and savings.

On the Minister’s first visit to Bedfordshire Police Headquarters, Mr Malthouse met first with Commissioner Holloway and Chief Constable Garry Forsyth to hear them outline the outcome of his investment into Operation Boson - the specialist unit targeting gang, gun and knife crime which was doubled after the PCC received Special Grants of £4.514m and £3m respectively from the Home Office in the past two years.
