Latest updates from Nortamptonshire Police Community Connect:

There has been a burglary in Hodge Close.  This happened between 10.15 and 6.30pm yesterday.  Information received from Street Warden (Bob)
A window was forced and then the patio doors opened. Drawers rifled looking for money and jewelry. Only appear to have got away with 113 euros.


Police and forensics were on the scene.   No prints found. Neighbours never heard or saw a thing, and the thief would not have found it so easy to get round the back of the house.

There was some suspicious activity around Cornhill at around 2.00am on Friday 20 January. 


 A resident heard a‘knocking’ noise somewhere outside, he subsequently saw a vehicle – described as ‘an old banger’ – driving off down the hill towards Bugbrooke.  In daylight this morning, he found a Black & Decker mains-powered industrial-type circular saw in a moulded case dumped outside the gates to the farm.  The Police have been informed and the item handed to Daventry Police Station as probable stolen property.


Please be aware and keep reporting.

I was leaving my girlfriends house this morning at Astcote Hodge Close and found my car rear window has been smashed in, nothing was taken out of the car. This must of took place early hours of this morning as when I arrived last night was fine, I parked on the road under a street lamp. I was just messaging to inform you guys of what has happened and wondering if anyone saw or knows how and when it happened. Many thanks

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.

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.
