National Consultation for consideration
Central government consultation on powers to deal with unauthorised traveller encampments
We have been advised of an important new consultation that could revise and improve the powers that we, the police, landowners and town and parish councils have over unauthorised traveller encampments.
The consultation document is a series of questions that are easy to read and respond to. You can also have your say so that the government is fully aware of how this issue impacts on residents and parishes.

Would You Like To Volunteer For Street Watch?
Bedfordshire Police is keen to hear from residents concerned about anti-social behaviour and crime in their area and would like to join forces to tackle these issues. Street Watch enables residents to promote good citizenship by patrolling their own streets. Members liaise with the force to encourage positive information sharing and partnership working. Juliet Wright, the force’s Watch Scheme Development Coordinator, said: “Our Street Watch volunteers provide visible reassurance and appropriately engage in local issues that matter most to their communities. They commit two hours every month to patrol in small groups, providing that vital link between their communities and the force. “We are looking for volunteers who either want to join a scheme that’s already set up in their area, or anyone who would like to start one.” Bedfordshire has Street Watch schemes in: Ampthill, Barton-Le-Clay, Biggleswade, Caddington, Clifton, Marston Moretaine, Harlington, Houghton Regis, Maulden, Shefford and Wootton, but schemes can be set up in any area. Volunteers are vetted at the same level as police volunteers, and Bedfordshire Police will provide training for any new members or groups. To find out more about becoming a volunteer, please email Juliet.Wright@Bedfordshire.pnn.Police.uk More information is also available at: www.street-watch.org
