The warning comes after a number of residents in the Luton area contacted the force as they were concerned after receiving calls from alarm companies saying they had been endorsed by the police.

Crime Reduction Officer, Lara Curtayne, would like to advise all residents that Bedfordshire Police does not endorse or promote any company or service.
