Community Safety Partnership Consultation 2019
Public consultations form an important part of the Partnership’s evaluation process, gathering data on the community's perception of crime and ASB and awareness of emerging issues in both their local area and the Borough as a whole.
The 2019 Consultation informs the work of the Partnership and is incorporated into the Strategic Assessment process.
Domestic Homicide Review 2011
Domestic homicide reviews are carried out to make sure lessons are learned when a person has been killed as a result of domestic violence (domestic homicide).
As a result of a domestic homicide that occurred in 2011, Bedford Community Safety Partnership undertook a Domestic Homicide Review to identify the circumstances that led to the death.
