Bedfordshire Police achieves a turnaround in police watchdog gradings

Bedfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Kathryn Holloway, and Chief Constable Garry Forsyth are marking a turnaround in the assessment of the force by the policing watchdog Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire & Rescue Services (HMICFRS).

The watchdog has given Bedfordshire Police an overall grade of ‘Good’ for police effectiveness, efficiency and legitimacy. This, says the Force, shows that HMICFRS has acknowledged the pace of improvement and quality of delivery in a force which it had graded as ‘Inadequate’ in 2016. Bedfordshire Police was the only force in England and Wales to receive this grade at that time.
