Welcome to the (Night) BedfordBID Businesses Against Crime Website

Bedford Pubwatch, known as Bed:Safe is a partnership of licencees, working together to promote good practice, share information, prevent crime and anti-social behaviour; with the intention of creating a safer environment in members premises

 

Bed:Safe is an initiative established by the North Bedfordshire Community Safety Partnership that recognises that the character of Bedford has changed from a county market town to more of an entertainment venue with a high concentration of licensed premises.  

 

Specific objectives for BED:SAFE are:

  • To reduce the number of alcohol-related assaults and alcohol-related crime in the town centre;
  • To work in partnership with the licensed trade to improve the management of licensed premises;
  • To promote the provision of safer drinking and safer clubbing and support services for those who visit Bedford’s pubs and clubs;
  • To reduce the perception of drunkenness, rowdiness and disorder;
  • To improve the movement of people around the town centre at night and thereby reduce the potential for nuisances to be caused and the opportunities for disorder.
