Fighting crime, protecting people. This is our mission and is at the heart of everything that we, at Northamptonshire Police, do. We want our communities to feel safe and supported, and will work together to deliver an exceptional service to the people of Northamptonshire. We are committed to working harder and smarter to prevent crime and to create a safer county for those that live and work here.
At Northamptonshire Police we strive to provide an outstanding policing service, putting the public first in all that we do, and in doing so support stronger, safer and more sustainable communities. We want to ensure that:
We have adopted the nationally recognised Competency Values Framework (CVF), which links to the Code of Ethics and sets out the behaviours and values to be upheld by every member of our staff, whether that be frontline officers or police staff.
In addition to the mission, vision and values, the Chief Constable has also developed a Leadership Ethos for Northamptonshire Police for all officers and staff to follow.
You can find out more by reading our full Leadership Ethos (HTML Version).
Every person working for the police service must work honestly and ethically. The public expect the police to do the right thing in the right way. Basing decisions and actions on a set of policing principles will help to achieve this. The Code of Ethics defines a set of principles based on ‘fairness’ and ‘respect’ as research has shown these to be crucial to maintaining and enhancing public confidence in policing.
