Your local Policing Team fully supports local Face Book pages; ‘Brackley Burglary Crime and Prevention’ & ‘Northamptonshire Streetwatch’. We would encourage you to use these sites to receive crime prevention advice that is relevant to concerns and fears experienced locally. Discussion of issues is encouraged on these sites but please report any criminal matters direct to Police in the first instance to avoid delays in investigations being started.
