More than 30 officers took part in a day of action in the Queensway estate in Wellingborough on Friday, January 4, which involved enforcement and prevention activity to tackle burglary and vehicle crime.

PC Hayley Perry, who coordinated the day’s events, said: “A total of eight warrants were executed which sent a clear message to offenders that we know who they are and that these types of crimes will not be tolerated.

“We worked with partner agencies including Wellingborough Homes who, as a result of the day’s activity, are working with the benefits agency to investigate two addresses to make prosecutions.

“The day also offered an opportunity to engage with the local community. The Mobile Police Station was parked in Olympic Way and Police Community Support Officers spoke with visitors about ways in which they can prevent themselves from becoming a victim of burglary and vehicle crime.

“Residents were visited by local officers to hear about issues they had in the area as well as gathering intelligence about any suspicious activity taking place.

“Officers spoke with about 160 people in the Queensway area throughout the day, and we received a lot of positive feed back about the action we were taking.”
