As part of our week of action, our Neighbourhood Teams have been out and about speaking to the public about serious and organised crime.
The issue was made a priority for Northamptonshire Police by Chief Constable Nick Adderley in May, and this week officers have been engaging with the public about the issue. They’ve been explaining how it can impact on people and what they can do to report any concerns they may have.
Chief Inspector Pete Basham, who is leading this week’s pulse activity, said: “Serious and organised crime, in particular, county lines, can have a big impact of local communities.
“We need information about what’s happening to take action against those involved, so it’s vital that people know about the issues and what they should do if they have any concerns.
“One way people can keep informed about what’s happening where they live is via Neighbourhood Alert, a free service for people who want to hear directly from us about issues and actions taken by officers in their community.
“We provide updates on local incidents, crime prevention, policing priorities, appeals and events.
“When you sign up you can choose what you want to receive information about, including the area you want to hear about. Follow this link to find out more about Neighbourhood Alert and how you can sign up Home Page - Northamptonshire Neighbourhood Alert.”
As part of their engagement activity, officers have visited schools, attended community centres and workplaces, and spoken to partner agencies about issues such as gang activity, drug dealing, modern slavery and cuckooing.
This work will continue throughout the rest of the week. You can speak to members of your local Neighbourhood Team at the locations below:
