In a little over a week a vote will be held to elect new Police and Crime Commissioners who'll work with Chief Constables to run our police forces.
We looking at some of the contests in the Anglia region and here we focus on Bedfordshire. It's the region's smallest police force with fewer than twelve hundred officers.
The crime rate is below the national average with 63 crimes per 1,000 population
And the cost of running the force - that's £174 for every person in Bedfordshire.
