Last month the NT exclusively revealed that top officers had said that there would be a new police base in Corby amid rising crime rates and a mushrooming population.

The town’s police station in Elizabeth Street was controversially closed in December 2017.

Now Chief Constable Nick Adderley has said that force chiefs are looking closely at a number of sites across the town including the fire station in Phoenix Parkway.

In a tweet, he said this morning (Friday, April 25): “Work progressing to find a suitable base for Corby cops.

”The old police station isn’t financially viable and the fire station continues to be discussed as an option along with a few other sites.

”This forms part of a wider estates plan for Northants police and fire.”

Labour’s prospective parliamentary candidate Beth Miller has launched a campaign to get a ‘proper police station’ for the town.
