Force-wide anti-theft drive

I have received this message forwarded by Ian Fearnley, our Northants NHW administrator, from the Daventry and South Northants Neighbourhood Inspector, Kev Byrne:

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 focusing 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.
