PCC talks crime and resources with DTC

On Friday 22nd February 2019, Northamptonshire's Police Crime Commissioner (PCC) Stephen Mold attended at Daventry Town Council to talk about police resources and ways to combat crime in Daventry Town.

Members of the council included Chief Officer, Deborah Jewell, Cllr Lynn Jones, Chair of Council, Cllr Mike Arnold, Vice Chair, and Cllr Lynne Taylor, met with PCC Stephen Mold, along with the Town's sponsored PCSO, Mia Ball and the DTC Town Ranger, Luke Lyons to discuss various concerns in relation to crime in the Town.

Members of the Town Council expressed concerns in relation to anti-social behaviour and the increase in vehicle related crime. They also went on to express concern in relation to reporting crime, and that many members of the public were unsure of when to use 101 or 999 and that the slow response from the former meant that many were deterred from using this service.

PCC Stephen Mold concurred with their concerns and advised that they were currently working on a new system to simplify the process and expediate the response turnaround times.

Cllr Lynn Jones, Mayor of Daventry, said, "It was enlightening to have Northamptonshire's PCC speak to Members of the Town Council about issues the Town, District and County are facing. With 'Unitary' around the corner, it is important for us to focus on keeping our community safe."

PCC Stephen Mold said, "The changes to local government means that partnership working with local organisations can create a unified future. We all have the same vision which is to work towards building foundations for future generations to come."
