bedfordshire violence & Exploitation REDUCTION unit
WHO WE ARE
WHAT WE DO
Around 160 young people took part in a community football tournament aimed at building better relationships between the police and the community.
Kick Off @ 3 is open to all and will see the six-a-side football competition take place alongside exhibitions and demonstrations from different agencies, charities and community groups working to keep young people safe.
Hundreds of teenagers have attended conferences organised by Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner and Bedfordshire’s Violence and Exploitation Unit (VERU) last week as part of a major drive to raise awareness about issues like knife crime and violence against women and girls.
Kick Off @ 3
We are inviting established football teams, schools and other education provisions, youth clubs and community groups to enter teams into our national six-a-side football tournament
LET'S STOP VIOLENCE
Knife crime and violence does not discriminate against its victims. As a community we are all affected by the hurt and loss of life. Talking to someone you can trust can help.
We are working with local councils and key organisations to achieve our goals.
Get in touch, even if it is to say hello. At Bedfordshire VERU we are always interested in exploring possible links and opportunities to work with others
