Corby police are asking local people to get involved in Streetwatch, a crime-busting scheme they are launching on Monday, 10 March.

PC Rod MacKenzie said: “Streetwatch is a great way for members of the community to join forces and help make where they live safer. We’re asking people to get involved in keeping a closer eye on what’s going on where they live and reporting anything suspicious or activity that causes concern.

“Streetwatch members will walk around their area, in pairs, talking to people, keeping an eye out for neighbours and helping to keep the area safe. What they report to us will be invaluable in helping us to solve crime and tackling any ongoing issues.”

“We’ll be holding several events in and around Corby in the near future for people to have a chat with an officer about Streetwatch so keep an eye out for the dates on our website, on social media and in the station. In the meantime I will be out and about at community meetings so see me there, pop into the station, send me an email at or call 101 and ask to speak with me or one of the Corby team.

“We are encouraging people to form their own Streetwatch groups so if you’re interested, contact me and I will arrange a time to visit you, explain how to start a scheme and what’s involved.”
