Please tell us about the issues that matter most to you in the area where you live and work by completing a short survey. The information you give us will help identify the local neighbourhood policing priorities for your area. Click here to complete our local priorities survey    (Please note some browsers require Ctrl + click)
We would like to know about any crime or anti-social behaviour that is causing you concern and if there is anything specific you would like us to focus on.  We’d also like to know how safe you feel when out and about in your neighbourhood and whether you think the police are doing a good job at tackling local crime and disorder. The survey takes just a few minutes and we would really appreciate you taking the time share your views. The more feedback we get, the better we can understand what the issues are for local people. 

At a county level, we have four Matters of Priority that Northamptonshire Police will put a special focus on over the next 12 months:

Serious and organised crime
Domestic abuse
Knife crime
Anti-social behaviour. 

We will also set up to three local priorities for each policing area every three months based on local crime statistics and the feedback we get from the community. We will tell you what those priorities are and keep you informed about the action we are taking to address them.

Your feedback is really important and we appreciate you taking the time to share your views with us.

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.”
