Every burglary victim in Northamptonshire is now guaranteed a visit from a police officer as part of the campaign.

As part of Operation Crooked, the force is also sharing crime prevention advice – statistics show that 25 per cent of burglaries happen via unlocked doors and windows.

Officers will also be issuing wanted appeals for known offenders they want to put behind bars for burglary offences.

61016 is to report non-emergency incidents to the British transport police, similar to the ones you would report to the 101 phone number provided by Northants Police.

When to use the text service:

Text 61016 (or call 0800 40 50 40) when you want to contact BTP about an issue that doesn't require an emergency response.

For example, you can text when:
You want to tell about an incident that has already happened on the railway network
You want to tell BTP about issues affecting your rail journey or your local station
You have a general police question for the British Transport Police
If your enquiry concerns buses or roads, you can contact local police anywhere in the country by dialling 101.


When to call 999:
Always dial 999 when you need an urgent police response such as:
A crime is happening
Someone suspected of a crime is nearby
Someone is injured, being threatened or in danger

Your mobile service provider may issue a small charge to text 61016.
The exact cost will depend on your network and tariff.
