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

So, I walk to the BP garage in Abington Avenue at 1800 3.7.20 and there is a police car and two WPC are queuing to get in. I point pout to them there is a Moped parked in the disabled spot with no visible badge. I point this out to the WPC who say "well we're not going to start looking for the owner but if we see him we'll point it out to them". Excuse me? If you don't curb small offences people just feel they can get away with more and more. From tiny acorns and all that. ... See MoreSee Less

Detectives investigating an assault in Northampton where a man sustained a head injury are continuing to appeal for the public’s help.

The 21-year-old man was assaulted in a property in Lower Meadow Court, Thorplands at about 12.30am yesterday, Thursday (July 2), and remains in hospital.

Detective Chief Inspector Andy Rogers, said: “We are keen to speak to anyone who may have any information about this incident.

“The offenders used a weapon, believed to be a shotgun, during the incident, leaving the victim with life changing injuries and so it’s vital anyone who has any information about this assault comes forward.”

DCI Rogers added: “Although the assault took place in Lower Meadow Court, we’d also like to speak to anyone who saw any suspicious or out of the ordinary activity in the wider Thorplands area on Wednesday or early on Thursday morning. You may think it was nothing, but it could be a vital piece of information to help our investigation.”

Members of the Northampton Neighbourhood Team are in the area today to continue to speak to local residents who may have any concerns about the incident, or who may have any information regarding it.

Witnesses or anyone with information about this incident is asked to call police on 101, quoting 20000335995, or can contact independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

⚠️ WARNING ⚠️ My 70 year old Mam has had a call from this number 01634746773 claiming to be from the government and something to do with stopping nuisance telephone calls. She was a foreign sounding lady and as the conversation went on she then gave 4 numbers which she said were the first 4 digits off my mams bank card and could she confirm the rest of them. She got the first 4 numbers wrong which my mam told her, so she then said ‘does it begin with a 4’ (I believe all bank debit cards begin with a 4), then asked her to confirm the rest of them. My mam has hung up on them but please make people aware of this scam, especially older people who may not have their wits about them. ... See MoreSee Less
