Neighbourhood Watch & Police Matters

 

Related posts


Crime is an unfortunate part of village life.  Neighbourhood Watch is all about reducing crime and reducing opportunities for criminals.  Holcot has a successful Watch, which works due to the cooperation existing between the residents and the Police.

Most crime is carried out by opportunist criminals.  Even taking basic security precautions and removing the opportunities will have a noticeable effect.

We cannot be expected to intervene if you see something suspicious – we are not the Police.  Make a note and pass on the information (for example a strange vehicle parked in the village, bogus callers, or a stranger behaving in a suspicious way).

If you have to look twice, report it!

To contact the Police –

Dial 999 for Crime in progress

Dial 101, or 03000 111 222 for other crime or suspicious event, or to contact specific local officers

Dial 0345 2307 702 for Doorstep Action Group: to report unexpected or suspicious cold callers

Dial 0800 555111 for Crime stoppers (if you have information but wish to remain anonymous)

Email – via the website www.northants.police.uk, or to Daventry Rural Safer Community Team on SCTDaventryRural@northants.police.uk

If you require additional help, or to discuss any related Police matter, contact the Parish Council/Police Liaison:  Kathryn Buckle  Tel: 07814 531836.

As always, you are asked to keep a lookout for anything you think unusual to your area, be it a person or vehicle acting suspiciously or even strangers knocking at the door asking questions. Please report your concerns immediately to Northamptonshire Police on 101 or, anonymously, to Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111 – it is helpful if you also notify the Holcot NHW coordinator, Bill Coles  Tel: (01604) 781971.

Police notice : seasonal thefts 22 September

Dear Stakeholder

Northamptonshire has in the past five years experienced an increase in theft offences across the county at this time of year, with last year being particularly high.

To this end, Northamptonshire Police will be running a force-wide operation between 25 September to the 30 November focussing on theft offences which cause the most harm to victims such as dwelling burglary, non-dwelling and theft from motor vehicle. 

There will be dedicated patrols in place over this period.  We will be looking at engaging with communities around crime prevention advice and intelligence gathering.  There will be media coverage around this campaign during this period.

If you could share this information with your immediate contacts that would be appreciated

If you have anything to report around suspicious activity or something you have witnessed please call 101 or in an emergency call 999.

Kind regards

Kev Byrne
