Our Force Control Room (FCR) is the beating heart of policing in Northamptonshire.

Answering emergency 999 calls and non-emergency 101 calls, as well as sending police officers to incidents across the county, our FCR operators are hard at work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days of the year.

Based at Force Headquarters at Wootton Hall, Northampton, the team takes an average of 1,200 calls a day – and no two are the same. One minute you could be taking the details of a stolen vehicle, the next you may be sending officers to a report of an armed robbery.

Life in the FCR can be challenging and pressured, but it is also a hugely rewarding place to work. Knowing you have helped someone at one of the worst times in their life is incredibly satisfying, so if you think you’ve got what it takes to join our dedicated team, check out our current vacancies using the link below.
