Corby Rural Neighbourhood Policing Team and Corby Borough Council Neighbourhood Management Team are joining forces to tackle local priorities during the Rural Week of Action running from Monday 9th – Friday 13th October.


Local residents across the 7 parishes of Corby borough will have the opportunity to speak to Council and Police Officers about local concerns around crime and disorder and general neighbourhood issues during the week. 


Speed gun operations will be running across selected rural areas, as well as school education activity. Joint council/Police surgeries will also run across selected areas during the week.


Leader of Corby Borough Council, Cllr Tom Beattie, said:


‘The Week of Action programme is important in terms of enabling both the Council and Police to undertake targeted work to tackle local priorities. It also allows us to link in with local schools to carry out activities around staying safe, which is particularly relevant this time of year as Bonfire and Halloween season approaches. We would urge residents within the rural areas of Corby to take the opportunity to speak to our officers and let us know about their concerns’


Sergeant for Corby Rural SCT Scott Little said:


‘The week of action is a great opportunity for the Police and partners to publicise some of the good work that has been happening over the last three months. The officers will be looking to engage with the Public and give them a chance to have an impact on the next set of priorities. Officers during the week will also be giving Crime Prevention Advice, tackling speeding and also parking enforcement.’
