New Youth Commission Recruiting Now

Northamptonshire Police Fire and Crime Commissioner Stephen Mold is setting up a youth commission to involve young people in decisions about policing, the fire service and criminal justice in Northamptonshire.

Young people aged between 14 and 19 – or 24 if they have additional needs – are invited to join the Commission, where they can make sure their voices, and the voices of other young people, are heard by decision-makers. More »

The Youth Commission provides a platform for young people to get involved and express their views on a range of police, crime and fire issues affecting our communities. This is an important role, as it will help the Commissioner to understand the needs of local young people and to make better informed decisions.

The Commission will have 30 members who will be able to lead discussions and to develop and run campaigns that will inform and engage other young people on issues that are important to them.

People who take part will need to be confident, commit to one session a month and keen to get involved and represent their peers. In return, they will be able to develop their skills, gain experience and have the opportunity to help shape important decisions.

Recruitment is now open and runs until March 25. To apply, visit https://www.northantspcc.org.uk/northamptonshire-youth-commission/

Illegal Sheep Butchery Prompts Push To Report All Suspicious Activity

Northamptonshire Police is urging rural communities to look out for and report any suspicious activity after sheep were illegally butchered near Daventry.

On February 28 officers were called to an incident in Whilton, where five sheep were found to have been killed and professionally butchered in their field.

The neighbouring police forces of Warwickshire and Leicestershire have also recently had reports of sheep being illegally butchered in a similar manner. More »

Rural crime officers at Northamptonshire Police are urging people who live and work in rural locations to keep an eye out for anything suspicious and report it.

PC Abbey Anstead said: "To find animals have been killed and butchered like this is not only very upsetting but also has financial repercussions for farmers.

"If you see something that strikes you as unusual, out of the ordinary or just a bit 'off' please let us know by calling 101 or making a report online.

"Please don't worry that it's a silly or trivial detail, as even a small piece of information may be a vital key that allows us to link other reports and bring those responsible for illegal activity to book.

"We also want farmers to be aware that this has been happening. If you suspect someone has attempted to target your animals, or find that you've lost livestock in this way, please report it to the police immediately."

Suspicious activity and non-emergency crime can be reported to Northamptonshire Police on 101 or online at www.northants.police.uk/reportonline. In an emergency, always call 999.

Information can also be shared anonymously via Crimestoppers by calling 0800 555111. » Less
