Operation Challenge is a county-wide operation dedicated to keeping our communities safe from violence - reducing the threat, risk and harm of violent crime is a priority for Northamptonshire Police.
Chief Inspector Andy Cox says: “The festive season is a great time to go out and enjoy yourself, on a work Christmas outing or with friends. We want to make sure that you can do just that without being affected by violent behaviour.”
All violent crime (including no injury, injury and serious injury), robbery and serious sexual assault can affect many people in many different ways.
If you have been affected by or have witnessed any of these crimes please contact us, by talking to your local Safer Community Team, calling 101 or online. In addition to taking the necessary action when a crime has occurred, we will listen to you and help you find any additional help or support you need.
Spotting domestic abuse may not be this easy. But reporting it is.
