This site is a beta, which means it's a work in progress and we'll be adding more to it over the next few weeks. Your feedback helps us make things better, so please let us know what you think.
Engaging with the public is just one strand of the work that’s taking place as part of our serious and organised crime week of action.
Officers have also been out and about tackling those people who commit crime.
Chief Inspector Pete Basham, who is leading on the week’s activity, said: “Tackling those involved in serious and organised crime is a Matter of Priority for Northamptonshire Police and we are using every avenue open to us to stifle the activities of those who are determined to exploit the vulnerable to make money.
“This week we’ve spent a lot of time speaking to people, educating them about serious and organised crime and what they can do to help us, but we’ve also been involved in proactive police work.
“Information provided by the public is used to help us gather intelligence and take action against those involved in crime.
“We’ve arrested people who we believe are involved in serious and organise crime and seized Class A drugs and the vehicles they use.
“This activity will continue, not just for this week but every week as we tackle gangs, drug dealers and those who are involved in modern slavery.”
