New figures show a significant drop in incidents of anti-social behaviour in the Wellingborough rural area, with a reduction of 45.6 per cent.

For the policing year to date, the total number of reported incidents of anti-social behaviour has dropped from 528 to 287.

Wellingborough Rural Safety Community Team Sergeant Dave Convery said: “This is an excellent result and is the consequence of regular patrols to specific areas and in addition a more visible police presence.

“We continue to encourage people to report anti-social behaviour to us so we can identify any hotspot areas and respond accordingly, working with our partners to ensure a multi-agency approach to tackle the root cause of anti-social behaviour as well as respond to incidents promptly as and when they do occur.

“We will continue to do all in our powers to drive down figures even further, and ensure that rural Wellingborough maintains its reputation as a safe and pleasant place to live.”
