Chief Constable

Local MP, Richard Fuller, paid tribute to the service of Bedfordshire Police’s outgoing Chief Constable, Alf Hitchcock, in Parliament on Monday.

Richard took the opportunity to congratulate the Chief Constable on his record as leader of Bedfordshire Police, noting that “Crime rates are down and detection rates are up.”

The MP’s congratulations were echoed by the Home Secretary, Theresa May, who also praised all the police staff who work in Bedfordshire on the impact of their work in ensuring that crime has gone down.
