As part of Operation Radiator we will be patrolling the area of St Crispins Ward in and around Wellingborough road and Kettering road on the 20th October 2018 between the times of 10am and 4pm. This is to ensure reassurance is given to members of the public and also to have a presence in areas that have recently been a target for Theft from motor vehicles. We will also be knocking on doors, giving leaflets also safety and security advice in targeted areas. More »
Such advice will consist of:
Remove temptation with this vehicle crime prevention advice
- Before you get out of your vehicle, check nothing's left out on seats, the dash, console, door pockets or in footwells. Take all valuables with you. If you can't remove items, lock them out of sight in the boot or a vehicle safe. Be aware of your surroundings and whether anyone could be watching while you do this
- Close all windows and remove sat navs or phone holders. Wipe away suction marks as these may tempt thieves to break in to see if the device is still in the car. Put phone charging leads away for the same reason
- Always lock your vehicle. If it has remote locking, always physically check the doors have locked before you leave it. Criminals nearby can use a jamming device to block the remote signal, leaving the car unlocked so they can get in once you have left
- Where you park matters – most car crime occurs on the street. If you park in daylight and will be leaving your car until evening or overnight, consider how the area may look in the dark – aim to park somewhere which will be well-lit and busy
- If parking on a public road, park in a well-lit spot
- Use theft resistant number plates which are designed to break apart if they are forcibly removed
- Fit tamper-proof security screws, available from high street car accessory stores. These simple anti-theft devices can be easily fitted in place of existing screws but cannot be removed using standard tools
- If you notice a car with different number plates on the front and the back, or with the number plate missing, call police on the non-emergency number 101 or report it online here
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us.

The much anticipated annual Diwali lantern procession will begin at 6pm at Market Square and All Saints Church. Local school children will join a parade including diva lights, drummers and new light-structures of Hanumanji the monkey God and Ravana the demon king.
Favourite characters Harminder the elephant, Ram and Sita and Shanti the big bird will also be joining the fun as procession heads up Abington Street, onto Fish Street, past the Guildhall and through to the Market Square.
A light will be offered to the Leader of the Northampton Borough Council, Councillor Jonathan Nunn, and the Mayor of Northampton, Councillor Tony Ansell, at the steps of the Guildhall and another light at the All Saints Church, will be received by Father Oliver Coss.
Dignitaries will take to the stage at 7pm for speeches and countdown to switch on the Diwali Lights in the Market Square, before bhangra music and dancing close the event at 8pm.
Neelam Aggarwal-Singh, chairperson for the Indian Hindu Welfare Organisation, said: "It's fantastic to see Diwali Lights celebrations get bigger and better and continue to grow from strength to strength each year. I would like everyone to come along and join us in celebrating this amazing festival of Lights.
