Currently there are 3 PCSO at Brixworth, Jo Wright, Kev Lumbis & Paul Miller. We will be recruiting 2 PC’s into positions here. In addition I will be returning to Brixworth for half the week (the other half I will be at Daventry) . The team will cover Brixworth ED and Moulton ED- please see below

New Force priorities have been identified and are as follows. Click here for more detail

Questions..

 20mph application

Quote from Matt Phillips Sgt on Safer Roads team.

“Daventry NPT do not sit on the Speed Limit review panel. The last time Holcot brought this application, it was unanimously rejected by all members, this was also turned down by the highways manager for NCC at the subsequent appeal.  Northamptonshire Police’s support is not required for Northamptonshire Highways to alter speed limits. There has never been an intimation that the restrictions are or would be un-enforceable. However, we will not routinely enforce restrictions which do not match the look and feel of the environment. There are sadly a number of roads throughout the County where this is the case and I would give the A43 Moulton bypass as a prime example of that.”
