What is Op Challenge?
Operation Challenge is a county-wide operation dedicated to keeping our communities safe from violence - reducing the threat, risk and harm of violent crime is a priority for Northamptonshire Police.
All violent crime (including no injury, injury and serious injury), robbery and serious sexual assault can affect many people in many different ways.
If you have been affected by or have witnessed any of these crimes please contact us, by talking to your local Safer Community Team, calling 101 or online. In addition to taking the necessary action when a crime has occurred, we will listen to you and help you find any additional help or support you need.
As well as taking action when violence occurs, we work hard with our partner agencies to prevent it from happening in the first place. There are many ways you can keep yourself, friends and family safe by following the advice on the links on this page and here.
We are also raising awareness of the life-changing consequences of becoming involved in violent crime to make people realise what can happen to them if they break the law.
