Community Campaign Success

Posted on 27th Aug 2019 in Campaigning

🔈 Community Campaign Success 👮🏻‍♂️👮🏽‍♀️👏🏻

You might have heard the good news last week that a Police Response Team will now be based in the constituency once again. Hopefully response times will come down, criminals will be deterred and people will feel safer.

This is the result of hard work from lots of people. I was proud to do ‘my bit’ to stand up for a safer community for us. 

It’s been a long time coming with initial chats with Pub Watch early last year; an evening out shadowing the police in the Old Village; a four month wait for responses to my Freedom of Information request (which revealed the huge increase in time taken for police to reach ‘urgent’ issues following the closure of the station, especially in rural areas); street-stalls and hundreds signing my petition. 

So glad we’ve got this new base. I want to thank the ET for covering and Northamptonshire’s Chief Constable for his dedication and commitment to making this happen. 

Thanks all - that’s the power of community campaigning 🙏
