Thousands of leaflets are to be delivered to homes in the Oundle and Kettering areas to let people know about the work of Northants Police’s Futures Programme.

The programme was launched last year to help the force find out how policing should work across the county in the future.

The vision is to deliver a new style of policing which places people at its heart

Supt Andy Cox

Successes so far have included the launch of projects including the joint police and fire rural intervention vehicle, the launch of the mounted volunteers scheme and the launch of the cross-border policing team.

In his introduction to the leaflet, Supt Andy Cox, who is leading the Futures Programme, said: “The programme reflects our ambition for Northamptonshire to become the safest place in the country.

“The vision is to deliver a new style of policing which places people at its heart.

“Success will include: improved performance by the police, fire service and partner agencies, increased participation by the public in community issues, greater accessibility to services and improved public confidence.”

The leaflets are due to be distributed in Oundle and Kettering, where the Futures work is being piloted, in the coming weeks.
