Force Control Room 999 and 101 Service

More than 700,000 calls are made to the 999 and 101 number each year.

The force control room (FCR) triages these calls and ensure the appropriate action is taken for each call.

Our #WhoYouGonnaCall campaign aims to explain how these calls are dealt with.

The FCR is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is often the first point of contact for many members of the public.

It is also the main point of contact for police officers. More »

They dispatch the nearest appropriate resource to incidents.

They check intelligence to keep officers safe and ensure each incident is concluded to a satisfactory level.

Every call goes through a threat, risk and harm assessment which leads to that call being prioritised accordingly.

With large numbers of calls, queues can builds up because everyone is trying to call one central call centre. This can lead to long wait times.

Not all calls are emergencies and not all of these require an immediate police response.

The FCR often takes calls relating to individuals with mental health issues, social needs, vulnerable cases or people reported missing.

Sometimes the police is not the most appropriate service to help. There are other agencies out there that are better placed to meet those needs, not a police emergency response.

Scrap Fly-Tipping

A campaign has been launched by Wellingborough Council and its partners, Wellingborough Norse, to clean up the town's worst areas for fly-tipping and litter.

Colleagues from Wellingborough Norse have been working with community groups to help improve the Victoria Ward area and clear up the vast amounts of litter and rubbish which have been discarded on the streets, and in car parks and alleyways.

They are now carrying out a campaign throughout July and August to remove and investigate fly-tipping and speak to residents about the negative impacts littering and fly-tipping has on the environment. Officers will be taken a zero-tolerance stance on anyone found to be committing offences, and will investigate fly-tipping with the view to prosecute. More »

Cllr Tim Allebone, Chair of the Service Committee, said: "We have been working with our partners, Wellingborough Norse and a number of fantastic community groups to carry out cleans up of the Victoria Ward area to ensure that this is place for residents and passers-by to enjoy and be proud of, but there are a select few people which spoil this and ruin the environment for everyone.

"We are now taking action to carry out a six-week campaign to remove and investigate reports of fly-tipping, and speak to people about the negative impact rubbish has on our environment."
Cllr Brian Emerson, Board Member for Wellingborough Norse Liaison Board, said: "We would like to thank residents who dispose of their litter responsibly. We will continue to tidy up the borough, and hope to make the very small percentage of people who litter aware of the impact this has and how they can help us to keep our streets free of rubbish."

Stephen Dunkley, Cleansing Manager at Wellingborough Norse, said: "The county-wide S.C.R.A.P fly-tipping campaign aims to crack down on fly-tipping in Northamptonshire, and we will continue on the success of its launch by focusing on the town's worst areas for fly-tipping and littering by adopting a zero tolerance approach.

"We will continue to work with the brilliant community groups to clear litter off our streets, but we would like to remind all residents that they can support us and do their bit to keep our streets clean."
