Consultation on draft Police, Fire and Crime Plan

Consultation on draft Police, Fire and Crime Plan

Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, Stephen Mold, is in the process of writing his first joint plan for the county's Police Force and Fire and Rescue Service and would like to hear your views.

For the first time, this is a plan for both police and fire, reflecting Stephen's responsibility to set the strategic direction for both services in Northamptonshire. It is not an exhaustive list of all the activity that will happen, but it is intended to set the key priorities for both organisations. More »

The priorities proposed are:

  • effective and efficient response
  • prevention that keeps the county safe
  • protect and support those who are vulnerable
  • modern services that are fit for the future
  • deliver effective justice.

A number of objectives are set out under each of these priorities for the Chief Constable and Chief Fire Officer to deliver jointly and with partners.

They would be grateful if you could feed back your views by completing the short survey here, by Sunday 7th November.

To ensure that this plan is fit for purpose they would like to hear from as many people in our community as possible. Please can they ask that you share the link to the survey with your contacts so that they can seek to address the issues that matter most to us all. » Less

NNC Support for Afghan Refugees

North Northamptonshire Council has today announced that it has made a firm commitment to support a minimum of 10 Afghan families to resettle in the North Northamptonshire area.

The council will provide the associated support and work closely with partner agencies to help achieve this commitment.

The council has also made a commitment that following the resettlement of 10 families, it will continue to identify opportunities to extend its pledge, exploring how the council can support a greater number of families. More »

Councillor Jason Smithers, Leader of North Northamptonshire Council said:

"I have said before that I believe we owe a debt of gratitude to the refugees from Afghanistan, many of whom have put their lives in danger to help us.

The Council has been working hard to establish how it can best respond to the emergency facing those who have been forced to flee Afghanistan with little more than the clothes that they wear.

I am pleased to announce the council's firm commitment to support a minimum of 10 Afghan families resettle in North Northamptonshire and to continue to explore how the council can support a greater number of families resettle in the future."

Kind-hearted people who want to offer help Afghan refugees with settling in the UK can make a financial donation or offer other aid on the North Northamptonshire Council website. People and organisations can complete an online form indicating what support they could provide, with the council then getting in touch when any arrangements are confirmed.

Anyone who wants to register an interest of help and support can do so on our website www.northnorthants.gov.uk/afghan
