Have your say on the policing priorities in Corby
April 5, 2018
A Corby sergeant is encouraging his local community to tell officers which priorities they would like police to focus on in the area.
Neighbourhood Policing Sergeant, Jon Hodgson, said: “It’s really important to us to listen to the community in Corby when setting policing priorities for the area.
“The current locally identified priorities are parking, speeding and litter and we have made real headway with those issues so far.
“In partnership with Corby Borough Council, we have supported schools with parking issues, worked with Northants Fire and Rescue Service to raise awareness in Oakley Vale, carried out speeding enforcement and issued fixed penalty notices to people involved in speeding and dangerous or illegal parking.
“We’ve also promoted the Great British Spring Clean across the town with 14 events so far and spoken to more than 2000 children about the impact of litter. This campaign has led to 274 bags of waste being collected.
“We want to continue delivering a service that the community wants so I would really encourage those people who would like to influence and contribute to policing in Corby to fill in this survey and have their say on policing in their area: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/87NGF5Y.”
