Northamptonshire Police


Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

Northamptonshire Police are committed to supporting the armed forces community and recognises the value of serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families to our organisation.

About us

Northamptonshire Police is responsible for policing the county of Northamptonshire, covering 914 square miles and serving a population of around 741,000 people.

The county is divided into sectors, which are served by 16 local Neighbourhood Policing Teams.

Our force headquarters are in Northampton, and we have police public enquiry desks in Corby, Daventry, Kettering, Northampton, Wellingborough and Weston Favell.

Northamptonshire Police is proud to support the UK’s military community. On June 20, 2017, the force's former Chief Constable Simon Edens signed the Armed Forces Covenant, a pledge to treat service personnel and their families with fairness and respect.

Written into law, the covenant states that Armed Forces personnel, veterans or their families will not be disadvantaged by their military life when accessing goods and services, compared to other citizens. It also recognises that in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.

Northamptonshire Police has developed a policing plan which puts the public and communities we serve at the heart of all we do.

We recognise that crime is changing and becoming more complex, and the force is dedicated to providing the most efficient and effective service we can with the resources we have available.

Our force mission is ‘Fighting crime, protecting people’, and we are focussed on taking the fight back to criminals, while providing a public service which cares for and supports those who need it, when they need it.
