Northamptonshire Police is responsible for policing the county of Northamptonshire, covering 914 square miles and serving a population of around 741,000 people.
The county is divided into two Local Policing Areas (LPAs):
Northamptonshire West: covering Northampton, Daventry and South Northamptonshire
Northamptonshire North: covering Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough and East Northamptonshire
Each LPA is led by an Operations Superintendent, who is supported by a Chief Inspector and a Detective Chief Inspector. The Chief Inspector oversees response and neighbourhood policing and the Detective Chief Inspector heads up the local CID.
There are 16 dedicated neighbourhood policing teams working across the county to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour in their local area – nine on Northamptonshire North and seven on Northamptonshire West. Each LPA also has two proactive policing teams who work with colleagues across the area to focus on specific issues and crimes.
The Local Policing Areas are an integral part of the Northamptonshire Police place-based policing model which comprises other commands and departments within the Force, including:
Crime and Justice
Force Control Room
Other support services and functions

Our Force headquarters are in Northampton, and we have police public enquiry desks in Corby, Daventry, Kettering, Northampton, Wellingborough and Weston Favell.
