The Police Liaison Representative for Creaton Parish Council is Cllr Ian Horne. The purpose of the PLR role is to act as a single point of contact between the Neighbourhood Policing Team and the council to ensure a two-way flow of information on
community safety matters.
Report from Cllr Horne on P L R meeting held on 27th July
It was highlighted that Northamptonshire is still one of the worst counties in the country for poor driving and traffic offenses and incidents.
It was noted that there has been no real deterrent for 10 years , with static speed cameras not operating , resulting in drivers ignoring speed limits.
A further 1.3 million has been invested in ANPR cameras which have been fitted to cars & static positions around the county
There are now 8 mobile camera speed awareness vans & 1 unmarked mobile unit operating only where there is a high proportion of incidents and speeding offenses.
Road policing , increased to 48 officers available 24 hrs a day , ANPR has become an effective way in catching criminals breaking the law
Northamptonshire policing no longer takes data from cabling roads, this has been replaced by ANPR fitted discreetly which can be mounted to streetlight or an upright sign and records vehicle movement over the course of 7 days, a report is then produced to identify key information if required
In a recent 2 week period , 967 vehicles were stopped, 88 persons arrested with 188 vehicles taken off the road.
The expectation is that in the near future DRUG driving will be more widespread than DRINK driving
Chief inspector Nick Adderly is determined to address the problems within the County.
