Don’t Make A Child Scared of the Police

Please don't tell you children that the Police will "lock them up" or "catch you if you are naughty."

We want children to come to us if they are scared, lost or in danger and not run away from us.

Let your children know we are here to keep them safe and protect them and if you see us when we're out give us a wave.

Identification Awareness

Watch Out for Bogus Police Officers

Although significantly rare within Wellingborough groups of criminals posing as police officers do operate up and down the country in order to trick people and steal their property money and valuables.

These individuals usually wear ordinary clothes and use fake police warrant cards to search people and property to take what they can.

If you are stopped by a police Officer or police Community Support Officer ALWAYS ask to see their identification. More »

The ID card will always have:
- Photograph of the officer
- A name
- An identification number
- Force crest
- Braille

A genuine Officer will ALWAYS explain why you have been stopped and offer you a copy of a search, if searched.

A genuine officer will ALWAYS show you identification and tell you which station they are from.

A genuine police Officer or PCSO will never ask for your PIN number or money.

If you are in doubt of the Officers identity call 101 and explain the situation stating the officers name and identification number.
The operator will understand what you are doing and a genuine officer will also understand. » Less

- Keep windows locked and closed especially downstairs
- Consider burglar alarm and set it when you go out or go to bed.
- Keep ALL keys (house and cars) away from doors and windows and out of view.
