Welcome to the Bedfordshire Street Watch website


In Bedfordshire, the first Street Watch scheme set up was in Marston Moreteyne in May 2010 where it continues to thrive. Since then ten other schemes have been established in the county, all in Central Bedfordshire: Ampthill, Barton-Le-Clay, Biggleswade, Caddington, Clifton, Dunstable, Harlington, Houghton Regis, Maulden and Shefford.

It is hoped schemes will be set up in areas covered by Bedford and Luton Borough Councils.

OPERATION SALCOATS – To be launched in Maulden on Saturday 20th Feb.

Op Salcoats is an integrated crime prevention and community reassurance initiative, which brings together the voluntary element of policing and community watch scheme volunteers to promote the role local people can play working alongside the force to keep our county safe.

Designed to help prevent crime and deliver greater reassurance in our communities, it reflects our commitment to tackling not only serious crime but also issues which affect residents’ quality of life, and thereby to build confident and resilient communities.  

Operation Salcoats will become a valuable asset to our residents and businesses – and to our hard-pressed Police – in providing the extra visible policing presence that parish councils and local people have said they want to see.

The scheme involves our first dedicated Parish Special Constables working directly with Watch schemes to ensure enforcement of speed offences, undertake home burglary surveys and promote community engagement. Parish Special Constables will have the same powers to arrest and issue fines as their long-established Specials colleagues.
