Update: February 2018

  • Burglaries and theft


Recently there have been burglaries and thefts in Pattishall Parish and other local villages.    There have also been  suspicious persons photographing properties and looking up driveways.  If you notice anything at all suspicious or out of place however trivial it may             seem please do not hesitate to ring 101 immediately.   If calling from a mobile a call back service is now in place.


  • Cold Calling.


Peddlars.  Anyone selling door to door in Northamptonshire must have a peddlars'  licence issued in Northampton.  A licence issued from another County is not valid. Please report these people.


Door to door Fundraisers  should not knock on the doors of properties that display a "NoCold Calling" sticker. The Institute of Fundraising has a code of conduct preventing Charities or Companies cold calling where a sticker is displayed.


If you require a yellow "No Cold Calling" sticker for doors/windows please contact the Coordinator or your street warden.


The Police value phone calls to identify cold calling/door knocking.  You can also phone theDoorstep Action Network DAN03452 307702

Memory Joggers

How good is your memory at remembering details of events you see in the course of your normal activities?  How well would you recall details of events such as a motor accident, a burglary or a fight?
When you report such matters to the police and they push you for greater detail how would you then manage?
In order to help in such circumstances we have been provided by the police with an intel card, to help you record details soon after the incident.

Reminder – dogs on leads

Residents are requested to keep their dogs on a lead when walking them in the village.  This request is prompted by a recent incident of a dog off the lead attacking another.


I appreciate this isn’t a legal requirement, but there is a need for people to be in full control of their dogs at all times to avoid incidents or people or other dogs being attacked or injured by dogs loose off the lead.

You can also phone 101 to report incidents to the police including crimes, parking issues and suspicious circumstances.   When calling 101 select option 2 to report an incident or crime.


The Police control room works on a grading and queuing system on calls.

Non urgent incidents and crimes can also be reported using an online form which can be found at 

Someone is dedicated to reading the incidents online so will be picked up.


Pattishall Parish no longer has a PCSO assigned to them.   NHW Coordinators have been advised that  PCSO's no longer  have specific beats.

The new strategy is that Police staff working is much more fluid and gives them the freedom that anyone can answer an incident within a 5-shift working pattern.


If you would like any information on NHW please contact the Coordinator.
